BMGF grant

Jan 5, 2015 | Family Planning

Concept Foundation has been awarded a grant of USD $3.3 million by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF) to continue and expand upon the work initiated in October 2012 under the Quality of Reproductive Health Medicines (QuRHM) Programme for the three-monthly Depot Medroxyprogesterone Acetate (DMPA) contraceptive injection. As well as continuing to work towards prequalification of DMPA finished pharmaceutical products (FPPs), this new grant will support additional work in key areas to address the barriers to making quality-assured three-monthly injectable contraception more widely available.
