To measure trends in the supply of DMPA-SC in public and private health facilities and com- pare with other prominent modern methods. Study design: We used repeated cross-sectional data from service-delivery-point surveys in six settings: Burkina Faso, Democratic Republic of Congo (Kinshasa and Kongo Central), Nigeria (Kano and Lagos), and Uganda, each with 3-5 rounds of data collected between 2016 and 2020. We analyzed trends in DMPA-SC availability using percent of service delivery points offering the method and percent experiencing stock- outs; trends were compared with those for DMPA-IM, IUD, implants, and other short-acting methods, by facility type.
