Dear colleagues

 

Please find attached the flyer with information for a high-level panel to present the violence against women estimates which will take place on Monday 15 March from 13:00-14:30 CET, 8:00-9:30 EST.

 

We will briefly present key findings of the estimates report, supported by WHO/SRH/HRP, followed by a panel of data producers and users (policy makers) from countries to highlight the importance and need for strengthening country capacity to produce, collect, report and use prevalence/survey (and other) data on violence against women.

 

Please share this information with your colleagues and networks.  

 

 

Many thanks

The DMPA-SC Access Collaborative invites you to

 

Making Self-Injection Count

A workshop on family planning data availability and use

 

March 22–25, approximately 5 hours daily

Data has the power to convey the lived experiences of women and adolescents, highlighting the importance and potential of expanding choices to reduce unmet need for contraception. Self-injection data is often missing in routine family planning measurement and evaluation. Programs need an accurate measure of uptake of new options and self-care approaches to better understand the needs of women and adolescents, help ensure a contraceptive method mix and quality of care, and influence policy and procurement planning across development and humanitarian settings.

The PATH-JSI DMPA-SC Access Collaborative is hosting this workshop to prioritize the use of routine family planning data in policy and programming. We will spotlight DMPA-SC self-injection in order to catalyze discussion, learning, and country action—not only for this contraceptive option, but for broader family planning and self-care initiatives.

Who should attend

This workshop is intended for family planning program managers and individuals actively involved in self-injection introduction and scale-up, with specific sessions for those responsible for monitoring, learning, and evaluation in family planning programs.

Simultaneous English-French interpretation will be available throughout the meeting.

Please register in advance at www.path.org/SIdata. Feel free to contact FPoptions@... with questions.


 

Le collaboratif pour l'accès au DMPA-SC vous invite

 

Faire compter l'auto-injection

Un atelier sur la disponibilité et l'utilisation des données de planification familiale

 

Cet atelier aura lieu du 22 au 25 mars pendant environ 5 heures par jour

Les données ont le pouvoir de transmettre l’expérience vécue des femmes et des adolescentes, en mettant l’accent sur l’importance et le potentiel de choix plus larges pour réduire le besoin non satisfait de contraception. Les données relatives à l’auto-injection sont souvent absentes des mesures et évaluations ordinaires de la planification familiale. Les programmes doivent disposer d'une mesure précise de l’adoption des nouvelles options proposées et des approches d’auto-soins pour mieux comprendre les besoins des femmes et des adolescentes, contribuer à l’offre d'un éventail de méthodes contraceptives et à la qualité des soins, et influencer la politique et la planification des approvisionnements dans tous les contextes de développement et humanitaires.

Le Collaboratif pour l’accès au DMPA-SC de PATH-JSI organise cette rencontre virtuelle pour veiller à la priorité de l'utilisation des données de planification familiale ordinaires dans l’établissement des politiques et la programmation. Nous allons mettre l’accent sur l’auto-injection du DMPA-SC pour engager la discussion, l’apprentissage et l’action des pays — au profit non seulement de cette option contraceptive, mais de plus larges initiatives de planification familiale et d’auto-soins.  

À qui s’adresse l’atelier

Cet atelier s’adresse aux gestionnaires de programme de planification familiale et aux personnes qui participent activement à l’introduction et au passage à l’échelle de l’auto-injection. Quelques sessions s’adresseront spécifiquement aux représentants des programmes de planification familiale responsables du suivi, de l’apprentissage et de l'évaluation dans les programmes de planification familiale. 

Des services d'interprétation simultanée anglais-français seront disponibles tout au long de la réunion.

Veuillez-vous inscrire à l'avance à : www.path.org/SIdata. Merci d’adresser toutes questions par E-mail à FPoptions@....

Share-Net International Community of Practice on COVID-19, SRHR and Gender Equality: Small grants dissemination meetings

Share-Net International kindly invites you to two small grants dissemination meetings spotlighting the recent work by the international community of practice (iCoP) working on COVID-19, SRHR and Gender Equality.

Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus, we have seen how the pandemic has pressured healthcare systems, led to a global economic shutdown, and changed our daily lives. Similarly, the impact of the COVID-19 on SRHR and gender equality issues and the need to include a gender lens to the outbreak response have become more clear.

To respond to the impacts of the COVID-19 outbreak on SRHR and gender equality and ensure the inclusion of a gender perspective in response and recovery planning, Share-Net International set up an iCoP on COVID-19, SRHR and Gender Equality in April 2020. The iCoP enabled collaboration between Share-Net members from all country hubs, as well as international members. Organised in thematic subgroups, the iCoP members have developed and implemented their small grant projects over the last couple of months.

The aim of this mini-series of online dissemination meetings is to

  • present and discuss new knowledge around COVID-19, SRHR and gender equality and
  • stimulate critical discussions around research methodologies and ethics in times of a pandemic.

Please RSVP to the two event-series parts

PRIORITY AREAS FOR ADOLESCENT HEALTH MEASUREMENT

Carolin Ekman
 

Adolescents are key to sustainable development, and several global initiatives call for greater investment in their health. Consequently, to track return of these investments, there has been a rapid proliferation of measurement efforts. However, these efforts have been poorly coordinated, resulting in duplication in some areas and persistent measurement gaps in others, along with the inconsistent definition, use and reporting of indicators, limiting comparability, and use of the data.

To address these issues and improve alignment and capacity for adolescent health measurement in countries, the World Health Organization (WHO) in collaboration with UN partners established the Global Action for Measurement of Adolescent Health (GAMA) Advisory Group.

 

In this article, recently published in the Journal of Adolescent Health, GAMA proposes areas of ADH measurement to prioritise in national and global ADH measurement – including core areas for measurement of all adolescents aged 10-19 years globally, as well as expanded and context-specific areas that may only be relevant in specific regions, income groups, or adolescent population subgroups. Based on input from youth representatives, countries, disease burden and existing measurement efforts, 99 measurement areas were identified.

Considering all four inputs, a group of global experts identified 33 core, 19 expanded, and 6 context-specific adolescent health measurement areas, including:

  • sexual health,
  • reproductive health,
  • child marriage,
  • social and cultural norms,
  • contraception,
  • sexual violence,
  • GBV,
  • social media behaviour,
  • poverty,
  • areas related to mental health and well-being,
  • as well as policies, programmes and laws.

 

For a full overview of all proposed measurement areas, and to learn more about the work of GAMA, read the full article in the attached file.

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.

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.

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:
