  1. MSI and PSI data and OPM calculations
  2. Cost and outcomes data on unintended pregnancies averted, maternal deaths averted and unsafe abortions averted are as supplied by MSI (up to June 2015). Cost per unintended pregnancy averted, maternal death averted and unsafe abortion averted for MSI are informed by programme costs up to June 2015 (£10,438,488). DALYs averted were calculated using the MSI Impact 2 model based on the product mix data supplied by MSI and PSI. All DALYs averted until 2019 (the longest-acting family planning method delivered in DRHR, other than sterilisation, was assumed to provide protection for 5 years) were aggregated without discounting
