FW: Launch of first SMART Guideline and comment in Lancet Digital Health: WHO SMART guidelines: optimising country-level use of guideline recommendations in the digital age

Nandita Thatte
 

Dear IBP Colleagues,

 

Please the newly launched SMART Guidelines from WHO. The first set of SMART Guidelines are the new WHO Antenatal Care SMART Guidelines.  Additional information below.

 

 

 

 

Today WHO launched its first SMART Guideline to accelerate the availability and impact of WHO health and data recommendations within digital systems at the country level. 

 

The first set of SMART Guidelines support a key WHO priority: improving maternal health and well-being, with the new WHO Antenatal Care SMART Guidelines now available on the WHO ANC Portal They include a Digital Adaptation Kit, an implementation guide for machine-readable recommendations, and a WHO digital ANC module for health care providers.

 

SMART Guidelines for HIV, STIs, immunization, family planning, child health and humanitarian emergencies are in development and will be released later this year. 

 

The SMART Guideline programme of work is led by the Science Division and overseen by the Department of Digital health and innovation in partnership with the Department of Quality Assurance of Norms and Standards, and supported by the Division of Data, Analytics and Delivery for Impact. The application of the SMART guidelines approach to WHO Antenatal Care is led by the WHO Department of Sexual and Reproductive Health and Research including the UN cosponsored Special Research Programme in Human Reproduction (HRP).

 

The following have been published in support of this landmark digital health effort:

#Digital tools have huge potential to strengthen #qualitycare and accelerate progress towards national health goals and #SDGs. In @LancetDigitalH, @WHO sets out a vision for SMART guidelines and calls for partners: https://bit.ly/3jYYCMA

 

Lancet Digital Health excerpt: SMART guidelines offer a pioneering approach towards a systematic, transparent, and testable pathway from narrative global guidelines to localised digital systems at the country level. This approach will facilitate systematic development, curation, and representation of recommendations (data, clinical, public health) in operational, software-neutral interoperable standards; improve global access to software and systems that interoperate across care pathways, facilities, and providers; enforce transparency and traceability of content; and enable pathways for validation of digital solutions. WHO recognises the complexity and comprehensiveness of the systemic change needed and will continue to develop evidence-based guidelines, now augmented with SMART guideline content, for country-level localisation across all knowledge layers. SMART guidelines will be vital to digital health systems transformation, and attainment of universal health coverage and UN Sustainable Development Goals. WHO invites all partners to help deliver this vision.

 

Thanks,

Dear Colleagues,

 

The following training module on contraceptive methods has now been added to the Training Resource Package for Family Planning (TRP): Levonorgestrel Intrauterine Devices (LNG-IUDs).

 

The module is designed for the providers in developing countries who most often are tasked with providing FP services—primarily nurses and nurse-midwives, as well as primary care physicians—and assumes trainees will have a minimum level of clinical training.

Webinar - Thursday 18th Feb, 11:30-13:00 CET - Innovations in strengthening health systems preparedness to address violence against women

Nandita Thatte
 

Dear IBP Colleagues,

 

Please see the invitation below for a webinar co-hosted by WHO and LSHTM on Innovations in Strengthening Health Systems Preparedness to address Violence against Women. Additional details below.

 

Thursday 18th Feb, 11:30-13:00 CET

 

Join Here: https://lshtm.zoom.us/j/92615429963

 

 

 

 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Please find attached details of an upcoming webinar, chaired by Dr Manuela Colombini (LSHTM) and Dr Avni Amin (WHO/HRP).

 

Title - Innovations in strengthening health systems preparedness to address violence against women

 

Date and time: Thursday 18th Feb, 11:30-13:00

 

Zoom Link: https://lshtm.zoom.us/j/92615429963

 

Further details:

Despite increasing recognition of violence against women (VAW) as a public health problem, health systems have been slow to proactively and systematically track, anticipate, respond and prevent such violence. However, in the past five years, since the launch of WHO clinical and policy guidelines for responding to VAW, an increasing number of countries have implemented them or used their principles in low resource settings, adapting them to their health systems and political contexts.

Bringing in voices from researchers, providers and activists, the webinar presents findings, challenges and lessons learned from efforts to implement innovative systems responses to strengthen health providers’ capacities and service preparedness to address VAW and the power relations involved.

 

Manuela Colombini, Assistant Professor at LSHTM and Avni Amin, Technical Officer, World Health Organization (WHO) will co-facilitate the webinar and Q&A discussion.

The five presentations are:

  1. Ana Flavia de Oliveira - Is training primary health care providers enough? Findings from a pilot study in Brazil

Although response to violence against women is institutionalised in Brazil, health care response is fragmented. The presentation presents findings from the piloting of an adapted intervention (IRIS) to address VAW in primary health care (PHC) services. It provides insights on how the intervention increased identification and referral of domestic violence cases; but also sheds light on other system challenges. Although important, training alone was not enough to institutionalize the VAW care within PHC. The importance of exploring health systems preparedness prior to intervention implementation is critical, including manager support; staff supervision; documentation and the regular reinforcement of the referral flow.

 

  1. Ana Baptista: Innovations on health systems response to violence against women – Experience of Mozambique using Quality Assurance Tool

As part of the multisectoral mechanism for GBV response, Mozambique MOH, in collaboration with JHPIEGO, implemented high quality GBV services in selected health facilities. Services were externally assessed from 2015 to 2019 using a tool containing 43 performance standards in seven areas of integrated GBV service provision, and followed by action plans for performance gaps. Services improved from scores ranging from 0% to 10% in 2012, to 72% to 85% in 2015, and 80% to 94% in 2019. Performance assessments ensured reliable, sustained, integrated, quality services. This approach has been adopted by the MOH, and expanded to all facilities.

 

  1. Abdulsalam Alkaiyat – Integrating violence against women in occupied Palestinian Territories: challenges and enablers

The presentation provides key findings from HERA (Healthcare Responding to Violence and Abuse) intervention in two primary health care clinics in occupied Palestinian Territories. Methodological innovations, including readiness assessment and stakeholders’ intervention planning workshop, helped yield critical information for developing and implementing the content of the intervention. The case study also highlights features of structural, political, and cultural context that affected health providers’ readiness and ability to implement the intervention. Findings also pointed to concrete actions in health system dimensions that were important for effective delivery, including values, leadership, financing, coordination and information.

 

  1. Sanjida Arora and Dr. Sonali Deshpande - Innovations in implementing research to strengthen health provider capacity and facility readiness in responding to violence against women in Maharashtra, India

They will present findings from implementation research in 3 hospitals in Maharashtra, India involving training of 220 health providers in WHO guidelines for responding to VAW. The trainings used participatory methods to raise critical reflections about how power influences women’s experience of violence and how clinicians can respond with woman-centred first-line support. KAP data at baseline, post-training and post-6 months will be shared. Health facility readiness, assessed through observations in hospitals, will be shared. Improvements in facilities focused on infrastructure changes for privacy and confidentiality, establishing documentation of VAW in HMIS, referrals for multi-sectoral coordination, and SOPs to guide care.

 

  1. Sharifullah Haqmal – Health systems response to gender-based violence in Afghanistan – lessons learned from scaling up the national protocol

This presentation will present baseline and end line results of provider trainings and facility readiness from scaling up Afghanistan’s national GBV protocol in 21 provinces. With 5000 providers trained and upgrading of facilities, we are learning that it is possible to improve skills and create a supportive health system in a post-humanitarian setting. Challenges include the cultural context, safety and security concerns, and difficulty in covering rural and remote areas. Health managers and policy makers must be sensitized to support providers to deliver care. Addressing mental health is an important entry point for responding to VAW in this setting.

NEW: Updated 2021 FGC factsheet and op-ed!

Katie Unthank
 

** Apologies for cross-posting **


Dear Colleagues,


On behalf of CHANGE, Orchid Project, and our partners, I am delighted to share with you two new resources relating to female genital cutting (FGC) as an underserved SRHR issue, in honor of the International Day of Zero Tolerance for FGM/C on February 6th:

  1. A newly-updated fact sheet from CHANGE and Orchid Project in partnership with Advocates for Youth, ICRW, and The U.S. Network to End FGM/C and

  2. An op-ed co-authored by CHANGE and Orchid Project entitled: Biden’s Support for Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights Must Include Female Genital Cutting that has been published in Medium.


We invite you to review these resources and share them with your networks using the sample tweets below.


We also welcome the opportunity to discuss these new publications further and are eager to answer any questions you may have on this important issue.


Very best,

Katie Unthank

Female genital cutting & Sexual Reproductive Health & Rights

Dear Colleague,
 

In honor of the International Day of Zero Tolerance for Female Genital Cutting on February 6th, CHANGE, Orchid Project, Advocates for Youth, ICRW, and The U.S. Network to End FGM/C are delighted to share with you our newly updated 2021 fact sheet that includes the latest research and information about female genital cutting (FGC).

The 2021 Female Genital Cutting (FGC) fact sheet provides a vital update that explains the practice of FGC, describes where and why it happens, and lists the devastating impacts that the practice has on the health of women and girls. FGC is a form of gender-based violence and is a violation of the sexual and reproductive health and rights of women and girls globally.

This new resource also includes data about FGC in emergency situations and describes how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted women and girls either at risk of undergoing the practice, or those who have already been cut.

CHANGE and Orchid Project have also co-authored an op-ed entitled: Biden’s Support for Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights Must Include Female Genital Cutting that has been published in Medium. This op-ed explains the specific ways in which the Biden-Harris administration can support communities in ending all forms of gender-based violence, including FGC, while also providing competent sexual and reproductive healthcare for the millions of women and girls who have been cut domestically and globally.

As our partners and we welcome President Biden’s new administration to office, we recognize the need to capitalize on the momentum and spirit of the moment to better protect women and girls, both in the United States and abroad. We hope that, equipped with the information in these new resources, you will join us as a vital partner in the movement to end FGC and secure the sexual and reproductive health and rights of women and girls both domestically and internationally.

To join in the global discussion around FGC this week, we invite you to share these resources widely and tweet one or both of the messages below:

Dear IBP members,

Please join us the end of the month:

 

Tracking and Visualizing FP/COVID Adaptations

January 28th: 8:00-9:00am EST

 

Nearly a year into the COVID pandemic, we know that FP/RH programs have been actively adapting their program strategies to ensure continuity of care and services. Given the need to rapidly adjust services, many organizations have not had sufficient time to either document their strategies or to share learnings with peer organizations.  We invite you to take a break from your hectic schedules and listen to some successful experiences documenting and visualizing how FP/RH programs have been adapting to COVID-related challenges.  The IBP COVID 19 and FP/RH Task Team, hosted by WHO/IBP Network, Knowledge SUCCESS and Research for Scalable Solutions (R4S), has been offering a space for implementers to talk with and learn from each other over the past nine months.   Drawing inspiration from a PSI initiative, we will be launching an interactive map at this webinar that visualizes diverse adaptations.  Come and hear specifics about PSI-led adaptations across service delivery and SBC domains, then see and hear how you can find and contribute information to the IBP FP/COVID interactive map!

 

  • Welcome and Overview of Covid-19 and FP/RH Task Team: Nandita Thatte, WHO/IBP
  • Presentation of PSI COVID-related adaptations: Lola Flomen, Dr. Milly Kaggwa, and Dr. Eva Lathrop, PSI
  • Overview of Task Team Interactive Map: Trinity Zan, FHI 360/R4S Project
  • Q&A/Guided discussion: Sarah Harlan, JHU CCP/Knowledge SUCCESS Project

 

 

Register here.

“See” you then.
Trinity
