New contraceptive for women in poorer countries
A new way of giving contraceptive injections - in a special device without a traditional syringe - could help more women in developing countries plan their lives and their families.
The device has previously been used for giving hepatitis B jabs in Indonesia, but this is the first time it has been made available for contraception.
It will reach women in the world's sixty-nine poorest countries, with Burkina Faso the first country to use it.
