How has COVID-19 affected the delivery of essential reproductive health services in your health facility or country?

Dear IBP colleagues,

I invite you to join the HIFA forum (Healthcare Information For All) for a deep dive discussion on the theme of 'Maintaining essential reproductive health services during the pandemic (and beyond)', starting 17 May for one week.

We use the term 'reproductive health' broadly to include pregnancy and childbirth, family planning, safe abortion services, sexually transmitted diseases (including HIV/AIDS), female genital mutilation, gender based violence...

We invite you to share your comments, experience, observations, publications in relation to this topic. Here are three guiding questions - please feel free to address one of these or any other aspect of reproductive health services:

Q1. How has COVID-19 affected the delivery of essential REPRODUCTIVE health services in your health facility or country?

Q2. What has been the impact of health service disruptions on the REPRODUCTIVE health and wellbeing of people in your health facility or country?

Q3. What have you, your health facility or country done to maintain essential REPRODUCTIVE health services?

In collaboration with WHO we shall collect inputs to create a Learning Brief to be published on the WHO website to help guide others.
