Welcome to Calliope, the Contraceptive Pipeline Database!
Learn about forthcoming and new contraceptive products from Calliope, the Contraceptive Pipeline Database. Please complete our user survey.
The summary report includes active, limited market approval, and SRA or WHO PQ approved products by target (male/female) and project phase.
A summary of products in the database begins below. This information can also be viewed in Table format. To refine the results, use the filter options on the left and then click on the “Apply” button. Use the Reset button to clear filters. Click on the name of the product to learn more. Use the hyperlinks for Target, Stage, Mode, etc. to see other products that fit the same criteria. The project phases and stages of the development pipeline are described here.
The products included in the Calliope Database are organized by the following status categories:
Active Development - Products that are in the development pipeline and actively being worked on.
Limited Market Approval - Products already marketed in limited contexts, but for which a broader market might be pursued.
SRA/WHO PQ Approved - Products that have recent approval from either a stringent regulatory authority (SRA; the U.S. Food & Drug Administration or the European Medicines Agency, including the CE Mark) and/or the World Health Organization Prequalification program, but are not yet widely distributed.
Inactive - Products that are stalled in the development pipeline.
Calliope focuses on contraceptive products that are in Active Development; it is not intended to be exhaustive in the other status categories. The focus is on long-acting* and novel products, and those that have the potential for wide distribution in low and middle income countries. Oral contraceptives, unless they represent a new technology or API, and male condoms are not included.
*In Calliope, long-acting refers to products that require administration less than once per cycle or month.
