EECO Program Brief on Introducing the Caya Diaphragm in Niger
Dear colleagues and partners,
The USAID-funded Expanding Effective Contraceptive Options (EECO) project supports the introduction of products with a potential to fill gaps in the market for voluntary contraception. Led by WCG Cares and in collaboration with Population Services International, the EECO project is piloting the introduction of the Caya Diaphragm in Niger. The Caya Diaphragm is a self-care, non-hormonal, discreet and reusable barrier method of contraception.
In our new program brief, Expanding Effective Contraceptive Options: Introducing the Caya Diaphragm in Niger, we share key steps taken, lessons learned and initial outcomes. The strategies and learnings described in our brief are applicable to future introductions of Caya as well as to other contraceptives in new markets. The brief is available in both English and French.
Thank you for helping us spread the word about this publication. Please contact Shannon Bledsoe (sbledsoe@...) with any questions. Apologies for cross-posting.

I am not a very active member of IBP but read this, and read other messages with gratitude and appreciation. Thank you for the frontline work.
I have been thinking not just about contraception but also menstrual cycle costs to women. Has anyone worked on a program of desirability, affordability and acceptability of menstrual cups? They may not be easily used or even accepted, but they would certainly save fundss in the long run. It would be essential to look at any health risks as well.

but I have ceased to question stars and books;
I have begun to listen to the teachings
My blood whispers to me.”
