This report presents the results of the DMPA Monitoring Study undertaken by Population Council, Manila, as a technical assistance project for the DMPA Reintroduction Program of the Department of Health. The primary objective of the study is to provide data on DMPA (injectable contraceptive) utilization and continuation rates that may be used to project the logistical needs of the program for the next four years (1995–1998). Availability of DMPA supplies, and information, education, and communication (IEC) materials on DMPA in the facilities were also monitored to provide some measure of the effectiveness of the distribution system. The study covers a 15-month observation period from April 1994 to June 1995 and concentrates on 1,379 DMPA-dispensing health facilities in the ten local government units (LGUs) covered by Phase I of the DMPA Reintroduction Program. Data presented herein are based upon reports received as of August 9, 1995, from at least 80 percent of the total DMPA-dispensing facilities in these pilot LGUs.
