New article - Strengthening contraceptive counselling: gaps in knowledge and implementation research

Ados May
 

 

Ali M, Tran NT, Kabra R, Kiarie J. Strengthening contraceptive counselling: gaps in knowledge and implementation research. BMJ Sexual & Reproductive Health Published Online First: 30 April 2021. 

https://doi.org/10.1136/bmjsrh-2021-201104

 

 

Summary

Effective contraceptive counselling can help individuals choose a method that meets their needs and preferences, manage any side effects, and continue using their preferred method or switch to an alternative one. Building on the systematic review (A systematic review of the effectiveness of counselling strategies for modern contraceptive methods: what works and what doesn't? http://dx.doi.org/10.1136/bmjsrh-2019-200377) and with the aim of moving this agenda forward, a think tank was organized by WHO in 2019 in Geneva, Switzerland to identify knowledge and implementation research gaps and other opportunities to improve the quality of contraceptive counselling.

The identified and prioritised knowledge and implementation research gaps in contraceptive counselling and related cross-cutting issues constitute a stepping stone for developing further research and guidance in low- and middle-income countries. We call on country partners, international organisations, academic and research institutions, donors and United Nations agencies to join forces in this endeavour, one that meaningfully engages the community and is deeply rooted in rights-based, gender and diversity perspectives. Such efforts could contribute to ensuring that all individuals have access to quality contraceptive counselling and the preferred methods that meet their needs.

 

PS: We also developed a comprehensive “definition of contraceptive counselling” which will be published soon and shared.

 

Thought it will be of interest to you. Feel free to share it among your networks.

Best regards

Neil Pakenham-Walsh
 

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.

The Interagency Gender Working Group's Male Engagement Task Force invites you to...

Men & Boys’ Mental Health: Emerging Evidence and Innovative Approaches

Wednesday, June 2, 2021

8:30 a.m. Washington DC | 12:30 p.m. Accra

3:30 p.m. Nairobi | 6:00 p.m. Delhi

Duration: 2 hours

 

 

 

 

Unique risk factors and social determinants drive men and boys’ mental health and can have compounding effects on their overall health. Global health programs must identify and consider these unique drivers in order to respond effectively to improve the lives of men and boys, women and girls, and people with other gender identities.

 

The Interagency Gender Working Group (IGWG) Male Engagement Task Force (METF) co-chairs invite you to join a webinar on June 2, 2021, from 8:30-10:30 a.m. EDT. During this event, we will explore emerging evidence and innovative approaches for addressing men and boys’ mental health in global health programming and exchange knowledge with colleagues across the globe. Breakout sessions will allow attendees to engage in deeper discussion with featured presenters to enhance engagement and learning.  

Please register here in advance for this event. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email with information on joining the event.  

Presentations and discussions will aim to generate dialogue on men and boys’ mental health as a contributor to and result of gender inequities, especially as they relate to family planning, HIV/AIDS, and maternal and child health. Panelists will explore topics such as how trauma intersects with HIV risk and care-seeking; how father absence can contribute to the cycle of poor mental health and other health outcomes; and how pressures on men negatively impact their mental health, which can manifest in harmful behaviors such as gender-based violence. The featured presentations are: 

          Introductory Remarks 
          Paul Bolton, USAID  

          Men’s Lifetime Experiences of Trauma in South Africa and Eswatini  
          Julie Pulerwitz and Ann Gottert, Population Council 

          Men The Podcast: Unpacking and Unlearning Mental Health for Men in Tanzania 
          Michael Baruti, Ubungo 

          Calm Line: Supporting Men’s Emotional Health and Well-Being in Colombia 
          Henry Samuel Murrain and María Fernanda Cepeda, Secretariat for Culture, Recreation, and Sports (City of Bogotá)

We look forward to having you join and contribute to this important dialogue!  

This webinar will be offered in English, with simultaneous interpretation into Spanish. 

Register in advance here. Confirm the time in your time zone here

Want to know more about the IGWG METF? 
The METF is an information, advocacy, and knowledge exchange network that examines what it means to engage men and boys in health promotion and gender equality. The METF aims to explore why we should engage men and boys, what are the benefits, how to do it, what works and doesn’t work, and what modalities of health services can better reach and include men and boys while addressing gender dynamics that act as barriers to health. Health areas of focus include family planning; sexual and reproductive health; maternal, newborn, child, and adolescent health; nutrition; HIV/AIDS; and prevention and treatment of infectious diseases such as malaria and tuberculosis. The METF considers relevant social and behavior change, service delivery, research, and policy efforts to improve outcomes across these health areas. For more information, click here

Respectful Maternal Care (RMC):
Are we trending in the right direction? 

A conversation about the landscape of RMC interventions
in Africa and approaches to routine monitoring and evaluation

 

 

High quality maternal health care requires ensuring respect and dignity and the prevention of mistreatment.  A focus on the experience of care is increasingly appreciated and recognized and approaches to advancing this area continue to emerge.  However, less is known around how to routinely measure and evaluate respectful care efforts to foster accountability and to track progress.    

Join us for a discussion on Tuesday, May 25th from 4-5:30pm EAT (Nairobi) in which we will explore evidence, experiences and perspectives on routine monitoring and evaluation for respectful maternal care in Africa.
 
This webinar is supported through USAID’s Health Evaluation and Applied Research Development (HEARD) Project and co-hosted by HEARD partners East, Central, and Southern Africa Health Community and the University of California San Francisco.  HEARD is an implementation science partnership advancing evidence-to-use activities as part of USAID’s Health Research Program 2.0.

Building Resilient Sexual and Reproductive Health Supply Chains during COVID-19 and Beyond

Danielle Fortin
 

The COVID-19 pandemic has created acute disruptions to public health supply chains, revealing underlying vulnerabilities in the global supply ecosystem and increasing uncertainty in both the supply and demand of life-saving SRH medicines and products. A crisis of this magnitude demands that we understand what worked well, what did not, and how best to plan for the future, even as the pandemic continues. 

 

John Snow Inc. (JSI), in partnership with the Reproductive Health Supplies Coalition, conducted a rapid assessment to uncover these issues, culminating in a new report: Building Resilient Sexual and Reproductive Health Supply Chains During COVID-19 and Beyond Community Roadmap for Action and Technical Findings. The focus is on harnessing the collective action of the entire SRH community to tackle the “big” challenges along the supply chain and make progress against both emerging and long-standing issues to ensure clients have access to SRH products wherever and whenever they seek them.

 

The full reporting with key technical findings and the community action plan is available here.

The Catalytic Opportunity Fund for Scale-Up of DMPA-SC: Learning from high-impact, short-term funding opportunities

Over the past two years, a number of implementing partners have leveraged the Catalytic Opportunity Fund (COF) to support the scale-up of DMPA-SC in focal countries.

The COF is a rapid funding mechanism administered by CHAI and managed by the DMPA-SC Operations Group, a group that responds to operational and service delivery issues in DMPA-SC and self-injection introduction and scale-up. The fund aims to support short-term DMPA-SC scale-up activities that unlock or generate additional resources. COF grantees carry out a diverse range of activities with short-term, small grants that make significant contributions to the national introduction and scale-up of DMPA-SC in their countries.

Join the PATH-JSI DMPA-SC Access Collaborative’s Learning and Action Network (LAN) for a knowledge-sharing webinar to learn from successful DMPA-SC Scale-up COF grantees, representing the Society for Family Health, Pathfinder International, Marie Stopes and Jhpiego, about its impact on their work and key lessons learned. This virtual discussion will encourage all stakeholders—program implementers, researchers, government officials, health providers, and members of civil society—to consider applicable strategies and mechanisms for efficient, sustainable, and scalable product introduction.

Date: Wednesday 19 May 2021

Time: 9:00 EST/13:00 GMT/15:00 CAT
