moderated Congratulation Re: [IBPnetwork] Introduction: Neil Pakenham-Walsh, HIFA.org

Neil

I've been receiving for years HIFA newsletters etc. and wondered if the below message is in regards to major change in HIFA objectives?

The COVID 19 situation is an example of data crises as to those who are infected and those died resulting in chaos as to whose information is correct. It's a mess a crisis of what's happening. There is little criteria on the primary cause of death no standard etc efc.

This is an area we need standardization and agreed rules of information collected. WHO or another body should initiate such an undertaking.

Regards,

Dr. Lawrence Wasserman USA

Self-care interventions as an essential part of a well-functioning health system

The World Health Organization (WHO) defines self-care as the ability of individuals, families and communities to promote health, prevent disease, maintain health, and to cope with illness and disability with or without the support of a health-care provider.

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, when health systems are overwhelmed with the immediate response, and in planning for a sustainable, quality health care delivery post-COVID-19, self-care interventions for health are and will play a major role in ensuring the right to health for all.
 
Join us in this first seminar by WHO and the World Bank, discussing the increasing role of self-care interventions to build sustainable health care during and post-COVID-19 pandemic.

The State of UHC Commitment: Survey 2020

UHC2030 is currently collecting stories and evidence on how people access and experience health care services in their communities.

Many countries are taking real and measurable steps forward to achieve UHC. To better understand these global and country commitments, we’re producing a multi-stakeholder review called the ‘State of UHC Commitment’ with hard data about how governments are delivering on their commitment to UHC.

This survey is seeking responses from organizations working towards UHC and aims to:
  • Gain insight into progress towards UHC at country and community levels through collecting the experiences of non-government actors, especially civil society and private sector
  • Ensure that UHC2030's State of UHC commitment review reflects the reality of UHC in communities.

Dear friends,

I am so excited to introduce a new antiracism e-course running from July 31st - August 31st, 2020! In collaboration with diversity, equity and inclusion consultant Cici Battle, we will be hosting a 4 week e-course intended to catalyze the lifelong journey towards transformative antiracism. Through safe digital spaces to unpack with peers, e-resources with reflection exercises, and facilitated small group discussions, we hope our participants will:

  • Understand systems which make up the enabling environment for white supremacy culture
  • Unpack white fragility and its impact on antiracism 
  • Analyze everyday manifestations of racism within your environment
  • Create antiracist practices which aid in dismantling white supremacy culture

We are also so excited to have my friend Rachel Cargle joining us for a private conversation + Q&A with participants. Register here, and remember that 20% of all proceeds from this e-course will be donated to grassroots organizations who are committed to liberating Black people.

As always, thank you for always supporting me, and for truly believing that Black lives matter today and everyday.

moderated What's New With the HIPs: June 2020

Ados May
 

Issue 1, June 2020

What's New With the HIPs

 

Welcome to the first issue of the High Impact Practices in Family Planning (HIP) Newsletter!

The purpose of this newsletter is to inform you of new HIP materials, webinars, and other activities and initiatives on a quarterly basis. Please share widely and sign up for future newsletters using the link below.

 

 

 

New HIP Products

The HIPs Partnership is pleased to feature three recently-published HIPs:

UPDATED: Supply Chain Management (June 2020): Stockouts of popular contraceptive products are common and persistent across many countries. Establishing and maintaining effective supply chain management is essential to making modern contraceptives available and thus helping individuals achieve their reproductive goals. This Enabling Environment HIP focuses on key practices to strengthen the management of each step of the supply chain from the manufacturer to the service delivery point.

UPDATED: Family Planning Vouchers (June 2020) This HIP Enhancement discusses the potential contributions of vouchers to enhancing the quality and voluntary use of contraceptive services. Vouchers are paper or electronic referral coupons that clients can take to an accredited health care provider in exchange for health care services. In settings where potential clients must pay for contraceptive services and/or methods, vouchers can reduce these financial barriers and facilitate access to a wider range of contraceptive options.

NEW: Family Planning in Humanitarian Settings: A Strategic Planning Guide (March 2020): This guide leads decision-makers through a strategic process to identify actions that improve family planning access in places at risk of, experiencing, or recovering from crisis events. The process supports country-level managers to think through preparedness actions so countries can bounce back more easily from regional or localized crisis and maintain their development gains. Listen to a recording from the June 9th webinar here

UPCOMING: The HIPs Partnership, in collaboration with the Ouagadougou Partnership, will host a French webinar: Groupe d’engagement communautaire (Community Group Engagement) on June 30th from 10:00 to 11:30am (EDT). Register to attend

 

 

Service Delivery HIP Brief Updates

Ensuring that the HIP briefs, strategic planning guides, and other resources are up-to-date and reflect current peer-reviewed and programmatic evidence is a core priority for the HIPs partnership.

From May 20-22nd, the partnership hosted a Technical Task Team meeting, which engaged 25 technical experts, writers, and HIP TAG members to launch the update of three Service Delivery HIP briefs:
 

1) Social Marketing
2) Drug Shops & Pharmacies
3) Family Planning & Immunization Integration


Despite transitioning to a virtual platform, the workshop was able to accomplish all objectives and participants reported overwhelmingly positive feedback. The teams look forward to sharing draft updated briefs for public comment in Fall 2020. 

 

 

 

June TAG Meeting

The HIPs Technical Advisory Group (TAG) held its semi-annual meeting from June 9-10th, 2020, hosted by WHO. Despite convening virtually for the first time due to the coronavirus pandemic, the TAG was able to accomplish its goals of reviewing draft HIP materials, making recommendations about the strength and consistency of the evidence and adherence to HIP criteria, and continuing to refine HIP processes and identify priority activities. 

Highlights from the TAG agenda include:

  • Updates on progress from the November 2019 TAG meeting
  • Review and recommendations to forthcoming HIP Enhancement briefs:
    • Adolescent Responsive Contraceptive Services
    • Digital Health for Providers
  • Evaluation of new HIP concept notes
    • Selection of new Strategic Planning Guide for development: Facilitate Meaningful Adolescent and Youth Engagement and Partnership in AYRH Programs and Policies
  • Production & Dissemination (P&D) Team updates
  • Planning for the Social and Behavior Change (SBC) brief updates 

The full meeting report will be available soon on the HIP website. For more information about the TAG experts, roles, and responsibilities, click here.

FW: New Options Brief Calls for a Global Funding Effort to Support Local Advocacy

Sarah Whitmarsh <swhitma3@...>
 

Apologies for any cross-postings

 

 

 

June 2020 

 

New Options Brief Calls for a Global Funding Effort to

Support Local Advocacy


Advocacy for family planning and sexual and reproductive health and rights has a strong track record of achievements. Yet how do aspirations for a resilient local civil society align with donor investments and values like local ownership and sustainability?

A new brief tackles this question and lays out options for how donors, nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), and governments can adopt approaches that better support local ownership of health, development, and human rights advocacy. It also a proposes a model global investment mechanism with the key elements needed to advance and sustain a meaningful advocacy effort.

The recommendations in The Future of Advocacy: Local Ownership, Sustainability, and Grant-making build on an extensive literature review and a series of consultations with more than 170 experts representing NGOs, donors, and academia. It focuses on family planning and reproductive health and rights, but findings and conclusions also apply to other health sectors and to development in general.

Graphic Design in the Development World

People respond to images faster than to blocks of text. Since individuals interpret the same images differently, it’s important to be detail-oriented and consider the target audience. In a new original blog, Husseina Bakori reflects on her experiences working as a graphic designer in the development world.

The USAID Applying Science to Strengthen and Improve Systems (ASSIST) Project produced an open access book of 12 case studies capturing experience improving health care and outcomes in low- and middle-income countries. The book shows how frontline providers in health and social services can identify gaps in care and propose changes to address those gaps to improve health processes and outcomes.

locked Invitation: From Response to Resilience - Strengthening community health systems in the humanitarian to development nexus

Lara Ho <Lara.Ho@...>
 

The International Rescue Committee and USAID Partnership for Advancing Community-Based Services (PACS) project invite you to participate in a virtual event on Thursday, 9 July 9:00am-10:30am EDT. PACS, a five year project led by the International Rescue Committee in coordination with the Ministry of Health in Liberia, restored community-based health services after the Ebola epidemic and broadened capacity to implement community-based health services under the National Community Health Assistant Program (NCHAP). With speakers from the Ministry of Health in Liberia, Liberian civil society organizations, development, humanitarian, and donor agencies, along with representation from the private sector at the virtual table, we will unpack lessons from PACS, explore how these lessons learned post-Ebola response and during recovery can be applied to COVID-19 adaptations, and identify best practices for community health system strengthening for response and recovery. Register in advance for this event here or click the button below.
