IMPLEMENTATION STORIES ON ABORTION CARE - Launching today!

LAUNCH: IMPLEMENTATION STORIES ON COMPREHENSIVE ABORTION CARE

 

Today, on International Safe Abortion Day,  the IBP Network is thrilled to be launching five new implementation stories – this time focusing on the provision of Comprehensive Abortion Care, including information, abortion management, and post-abortion family planning.

 

How can WHO guidelines be used in countries?

How is storytelling relevant to SRHR?

In these stories, five local NGOs describe how they have concretely used WHO abortion guidelines to improve equitable access to comprehensive abortion care that is safe, timely, affordable and respectful. 

 

Leveraging the power of storytelling, these products are touching and inspiring testimonies to how evidence-based health care programming can make a real difference for real people on the ground: for health workers taking pride in providing their communities with quality abortion care services, and for women and girls who have been empowered to understand their right to health, and who have access to safe, non-judgemental and person-centred abortion and family planning services when needed.

Agenda to Transform the Global Health Landscape: Routine Immunization for the Achievement of the SDGs and last call for registration for GHPC22!

Ados May
 

 

 

 

The most vulnerable communities are impacted the hardest by violent conflicts, acute food insecurity, shortage of energy, the climate crisis, and the COVID-19 pandemic. These compounded crises have severely impacted their access to lifesaving immunization and their socio-economic development, limiting even further their access to health and non-health services such as education, water, and sanitation. 

 

With equitable access to vaccines at the very center of its mission, Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, has helped vaccinate 981 million children, saved 15 million lives since 2000 through routine immunization and provided more than 1.6 billion COVID-19 vaccines through COVAX. 

 

It is more important than ever to put the world back on track to achieve vaccine equity, the SDGs and Health for All

 

Join us from October 4-5 for the Global Health Practitioner Conference for engagement with global leaders in health on topics such as vaccine equity and many more as we explore how we can collectively transform the global health landscape!

 

 

 

 

 

ROUTINE IMMUNIZATION FOR UNIVERSAL HEALTH COVERAGE

 

New immunization data, released on 15 July 2022, shows that 25 million children around the world missed out on one or more doses of lifesaving vaccines in 2021[1]. Of those children, 18 million had never received a single dose of vaccines, also known as Zero Dose Children.

 

Routine immunization is the most effective health intervention, essential to prevent outbreaks and the resurgence of eradicated diseases, and fundamental to preventing future pandemics. Reaching vulnerable and hard-to-reach communities with integrated and equitable primary healthcare (PHC) services is a pathway to achieving Universal Health Coverage (UHC) and other essential services such as education, nutrition, water, and sanitation. 

 

Watch and share the video below to raise awareness and inspire action to reach more children with lifesaving immunization services!

Join us in celebrating Choice Week

Next week, we're celebrating Choice Week, as we join partners in recognising two global days - World Contraception Day on September 26, and International Safe Abortion Day on September 28 - and highlighting the importance of reproductive choice.  
 
We know that when people have reproductive choice, it opens up a world of opportunity, allowing women and girls to finish school, pursue a career, and plan for the future, exercising their full economic, political and social potential. And despite recent setbacks, we still have much to celebrate! 
 
Courageous advocates around the world are speaking out for the fundamental right to choose, and winning policy changes that make reproductive healthcare more accessible.  
 
Bold providers are ensuring that more women than ever can access the healthcare that allows them to plan their own futures.  
 
And even in the face of an anti-choice opposition encouraged by recent events in the U.S., pro-choice people everywhere are standing up and saying: We will not go back. 
 
So please join us in celebrating that progress, by standing for choice this Choice Week! Here are two ways you can get involved: 

  1. Join the conversation on social media using the hashtag #StandForChoice and our partner social media toolkit
  1. Learn more about Choice Week and the transformative power of choice on our website 

 
I know you share our commitment to ensuring everyone, everywhere can choose their own future, and I’m grateful to have your support. Thank you! 
 
Sincerely, 
Banchi Dessalegn 
Africa Director, MSI Reproductive Choices

Improving health and gender equality among very young adolescents: Harnessing the power of faith-based organizations

September 22 at 8:00 to 9:00 am ET / 12:00 to 1:00 pm GMT

Faire avancer la santé et l'égalité des sexes chez les très jeunes adolescents : l'exploitation du pouvoir des organisations confessionnelles

22 septembre de 8h00 à 9h00 HE / 12h00 à 13h00 GMT

Join USAID's MOMENTUM Country and Global Leadership for a webinar exploring how two faith-based organizations in Bangladesh implemented gender transformative approaches to improve health and gender equality among very young adolescents (VYAs), their families, and communities. French and Bengali interpretation will be available.

Register

Representatives from World Renew and LAMB will discuss their experiences implementing Save the Children’s evidence-based Choices, Voices, Promises intervention and lessons learned that can be applied for future locally-led very young adolescent programming. Reaching this age group—youths aged 10 to 14—is critical to lay the foundation for positive reproductive health outcomes, to address inequitable gender attitudes and behaviors before they are cemented, and to prevent early marriage and childbearing.

PRESENTERS 


  • Dr. Bapon Mankhin, Director, Community Health and Development Program, LAMB
  • Shagota Chisim, Capacity Development Manager, World Renew Bangladesh
  • Meroji Sebany, Adolescent and Reproductive Health Advisor, Save the Children, United States


The discussion will be moderated by Liza Talukder, Project Management Specialist at the USAID Bangladesh Office of Population Health and Nutrition

Français: Rejoignez MOMENTUM Country and Global Leadership de l'USAID pour un webinaire montrant comment deux organisations confessionnelles au Bangladesh ont mis en œuvre des approches transformatrices en matière de genre pour améliorer la santé et l'égalité des sexes chez les très jeunes adolescents (VYA), leurs familles et leurs communautés. Une interprétation en français et en bengali sera disponible.

S'inscrire

Des représentants de World Renew et de LAMB discuteront de leurs expériences de mise en œuvre de l'intervention Choices, Voices, Promises de Save the Children basée sur des preuves et des leçons apprises qui peuvent être appliquées pour de futurs programmes locaux destinés aux très jeunes adolescents. Atteindre ce groupe d'âge - les jeunes âgés de 10 à 14 ans - est essentiel pour commencer à lutter contre les attitudes et les comportements sexistes néfastes, pour jeter les bases de résultats positifs en matière de santé reproductive et, en fin de compte, pour éviter les conséquences négatives potentielles, notamment le mariage et la maternité précoces. 


PRÉSENTATEURS


  • Dr Bapon Mankhin, Directeur, Programme de développement et de santé communautaire, LAMB
  • Shagota Chisim, responsable du développement des capacités, World Renew Bangladesh
  • Meroji Sebany, conseillère en matière de santé des adolescents et de la reproduction, Save the Children, États-Unis


La discussion sera animée par Liza Talukder, spécialiste de la gestion de projet, Bureau de la santé et de la nutrition de la population de l'USAID au Bangladesh.

Please join WHO, HRP and the IBP Network for a webinar this Thursday presenting photos and positive stories of health as it relates to comprehensive abortion care and post-abortion family planning, from countries in four WHO Regions.

 

  • Title: My story, your camera, our rights: Communicating on abortion care and family planning as health care
  • Date: Thursday, 22 September, 2022
  • Time: 15:00-16:00 GMT+2

 

With opening remarks from Pascale Allotey, Director of the WHO Department of Sexual and Reproductive Health and Research (SRH) and a discussion with experts and photographers from Moldova, Nepal, Pakistan and Sierra Leone, moderated by Vismita Gupta-Smith, WHO Head-Strategy, Planning & Coordination, Department of Communications, this will be a rich discussion on the importance of storytelling and approaches to communicating on sexual and reproductive health and rights.

 

The WHO guidance is clear: abortion care is health care, and health is a human right. Even still, abortion remains a highly stigmatized issue. In order for safe, respectful and affordable abortion care to be accessible to all who need it, when they need it, there is a need for continuous advocacy for the right to comprehensive abortion care, and against stigma impacting those who seek and provide this health care.

Request for literature on implementation strategies, facilitators, and barriers to scaling up and sustaining task-sharing in family planning

Adeniyi Aderoba
 


Dear Colleagues,

 

The Contraception and Fertility Care Unit of the UNDP–UNFPA–UNICEF–WHO–World Bank Special Programme of Research, Development and Research Training in Human Reproduction (HRP), Department of Sexual Reproductive Health and Research, at the World Health Organization has commissioned a review on the implementation strategies, facilitators, and barriers to scaling up and sustaining task-sharing in family planning.

 

Ensuring access to quality family planning (FP) services is fundamental to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) targets 3.1, 3.7, and 5.6, including universal access to reproductive health services. However, barriers such as health workforce shortages and restrictive policies on the role of mid and lower-level health workforce cadres limit access to contraceptives and FP in many settings. Evidence on the implementation strategies, facilitators, and barriers to scaling up and sustaining task-sharing could inform financing, implementation approaches, and technical assistance of national and global FP task-sharing programs.

 

As part of our search to identify and assess grey literature related to this topic. If you are aware of any documents, kindly share the electronic file with kabrar@... or Adeniyi before 20th September 2022. The protocol for the systematic review can be accessed here, and the results will be shared once it is completed.

 

Thank you.

 

Review Team
