Pfizer, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to expand contraceptive access in poor nations

On Thursday, the Pfizer Inc and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation announced about their expansion agreement wherein the drugmaker's long-acting Sayana Press contraceptive for women will be sold in 69 of the world's poorest countries, for $1 per dose.

This particular drug will be available in pre-packaged capsule syringes and will have to be given every three months. The plane that was previously introduced under the program included only a few of the poorest countries like Burkina Faso, Niger and Bangladesh. Later it was also approved in Europe.
