Announcing The Pitch Watch Parties!

anne.ballard@...
 

Dear colleagues,

 

More than 80 organizations submitted ideas. Out of this outstanding group, we selected 10 semi-finalists to pitch their idea to a panel of judges. Now we’re ready to announce four winners that will receive up to $50,000 USD to fund their innovation. Join Knowledge SUCCESS for two exciting watch parties for The Pitch, regional competitions placing stakeholders in sub-Saharan Africa and Asia at the center of designing and implementing knowledge management innovations. 

 

Details:

  • The Pitch Asia watch party will take place on Wednesday, June 30, 2021 at 7:00 AM ET (4:30 PM Delhi | 4:00 PM Islamabad | 7:00 AM New York | 2:00 PM Nairobi)
  • The Pitch Africa watch party will take place on Thursday, July 1, 2021 at 9:00 AM ET 

(16 h 00 Nairobi | 14 h 00 Abuja | 09 h 00 New York | 18 h 30 Delhi)

  • Want a sneak peek of the final episodes? We’ve produced short video trailers to give you a taste of what you can expect.

 

Register for the watch parties and watch the trailers on The Pitch official webpage.

 

Each watch party is pre-recorded and produced to feel like an episode of the popular television show, Shark Tank. During the Pitch watch parties, which will premiere on YouTube, each semi-finalist organization will present their idea for 5 minutes. Our panel of judges will ask questions. The competition winners will be announced at the end of each episode. Our semi-finalists and Pitch team will be engaging “live” in the chat box to answer your questions.

 

Our semi-finalists did a remarkable job presenting their knowledge management ideas to a panel of judges, who hail from the donor community. Join the watch parties to show your support and be inspired with ideas to try in your own country or community. You’ll also have a unique opportunity to hear directly from the judges about why they chose the final winners.

 

See you at the watch parties,

Anne

Data visualization update: contraceptive discontinuation and switching in Bangladesh, Mali, and Zambia

Eve Brecker
 

—En français ci-dessous—

Dear colleagues,

 

The PACE Project is delighted to announce an exciting update of our Choices and Challenges tool, which highlights trends in women’s contraceptive use by age group, as well as reasons for discontinuation and related reproductive outcomes, in an accessible, user-friendly format. The content, which draws on Demographic and Health Survey (DHS) calendar data, also reveals the extent to which switching contraceptive methods results in greater use of more- or less-effective methods. Our Spring 2021 update includes:

  • New data from Bangladesh and Zambia
  • Data from Mali

The web feature is designed to support policy and program decisionmakers – across 13 countries – in delivering high-quality, client-centered care that enables women and couples to make the best family planning choices for themselves. PRB welcomes the opportunity to further discuss the tool with stakeholders interested in learning more about specific country data, strategies for analyzing and visualizing DHS calendar data, or the featured policy recommendations. Please reach out to Eve Brecker at ebrecker@... with expressions of interest and/or questions.

 

Please keep an eye out for further updates with additional countries this summer!

 

Sincerely,

Eve Brecker

 

 

Chers collègues,

 

Nous sommes heureux de partager avec vous la mise à jour de notre outil Choices and Challenges, qui met en évidence ces tendances en utilisation contraceptive chez les femmes, divisée par tranche d'âge, ainsi que les raisons de l'abandon et des résultats reproductifs associés, dans un format accessible et facile à utiliser. Le contenu, qui s'appuie sur les données du calendrier des enquêtes démographiques et de santé (EDS), révèle également dans quelle mesure le changement de méthode contraceptive peut donner lieu à une plus grande utilisation de méthodes contraceptives plus efficaces ou moins efficaces. Notre mise à jour de 2021 inclut:

  • De nouvelles données pour le Bangladesh et la Zambie
  • Des données pour le Mali

La présentation en ligne est conçue pour aider les décideurs politiques et des responsables de programmes à fournir des soins de haute qualité centrés sur le client, permettant aux femmes et aux couples de faire les meilleurs choix de planification familiale pour eux-mêmes. Nous aux PRB invitons ceux d’entre vous qui sont intéressées à avoir plus d’informations de nous contacter sur des données nationales individuelles spécifiques, les stratégies d'analyse et de visualisation des données du calendrier EDS, ou sur les recommandations politiques figurant dans notre outil. N'hésitez pas à contacter Eve Brecker (ebrecker@...) pour toute question.

 

Suivez nos infos pour d'autres mises à jour et l’addition d'autres pays cet été!

 

Cordialement,

Eve Brecker

WHO guidelines and tools that address sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) are widely disseminated amongst high level policy stakeholders. There is, however, limited documentation on how these guidelines and tools are practically implemented and adapted on the ground, and on the impact that such implementation can have for individuals and communities.

 

Efficient and innovative documentation contributes to the wider evidence base around successful implementation and scale-up of evidence-based interventions in SRHR, while also encouraging learning from and sharing of real-life experiences of what works and what does not work in local contexts.

 

In an effort to encourage documentation and sharing of concrete use of WHO guidelines and tools in local settings, the IBP Network calls for experiences on how WHO guidelines and tools related to comprehensive abortion care (CAC) have been implemented by stakeholders at country level.

 

Selected applicants will be supported by the IBP Network in capturing and conveying their lessons learnt, challenges faced and recommendations, using a storytelling format. They will also receive a stipend of $2400 to support their documentation process.

 

Has your organization implemented any WHO guidelines or tools related to CAC? Take this opportunity to receive support documenting your work and impact in innovative ways - as well as to share your experiences with other SRHR stakeholders around the world!

 

For further details, see the attached call. 

 

This project is our second initiative to collect implementation stories in the space of SRHR. The first round of IBP Implementation Stories, capturing use of FP/RH guidelines and High Impact Practices, generated 15 fantastic story briefs. Visit the IBP Platform to read all 15 winning stories.

New article: Defining Counselling in Contraceptive information and services

Nandita Thatte
 


Dear IBP Colleagues 

Please see a new article published on defining contraceptive counseling. 

Begin forwarded message:



Dear colleagues

Hope you are staying well and keeping safe. Sharing a new article that just published in BMJ Sexual & Reproductive Health.

 

The link is provided as under:  

Ali M, Tran NT. Defining counselling in contraceptive information and services: outcomes from an expert think tank. BMJ Sexual & Reproductive Health Published Online First: 14 June 2021. http://dx.doi.org/10.1136/bmjsrh-2021-201132

Access the article at: http://srh.bmj.com/cgi/content/full/bmjsrh-2021-201132

 

Quality contraceptive counselling has the potential to play a key role in supporting individuals select a method that matches their needs and expectations, mitigate any side effects, continue their method, or turn to other options, thereby reducing the unmet need for contraception, among other factors. There is, however, no standard definition of contraceptive counselling, although the centrality of quality counselling is underscored in different frameworks and programmatic and policy recommendations.

 

A think tank on the topic was held at WHO, Geneva in 2019. The think tank gathered representatives from academia, implementing agencies and international organizations working in the contraception field (see Acknowledgements) and had the objective of identifying research and guidance gaps and other opportunities for improving the quality of contraceptive counselling. Notably, the discussions culminated in the development of a comprehensive definition of counselling, which can hopefully serve as a benchmark for further development, update and use by academia and implementing agencies. The definition reads as follows:

“Contraceptive counselling is defined as the exchange of information on contraceptive methods based on an assessment of the client’s needs, preferences, and lifestyle to support decision-making as per the client’s intentions. This includes the selection, discontinuation or switching of a contraceptive method. The key principles are based on: coercion-free and informed choice; neutral, understandable and evidence-based information; collaborative and confidential decision-making process; ensuring respectful care, dignity, and choice”.

We also published two more relevant articles on FP counselling, so just putting the links for your convenience.  

The second article:

  • 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

 

and, the link to the third articles is as under:

  • Cavallaro FL, Benova L, Owolabi OO, Ali M. A systematic review of the effectiveness of counselling strategies for modern contraceptive methods: what works and what doesn’t? BMJ Sex Reprod Health. doi:10.1136/bmjsrh-2019-200377

On behalf of USAID’s Evidence to Action (E2A) Project and our consortium of partners—Pathfinder International, ExpandNet, IntraHealth International, PATH, Management Sciences for Health, and the African Population and Health Research Center—I’m excited to share with you E2A’s final report.

For nearly 10 years, across 17 countries, E2A advanced high-quality services that have improved reproductive health and contributed to reductions in unintended pregnancies and gender disparities. As a result, today, more women and girls can make—and act on—informed decisions that ensure the healthiest outcomes for themselves and their families.

Pioneering cutting-edge programs for youth.

On page 8, see how E2A programs improved health and gender outcomes for first-time parents, strengthened policies, accelerated a global shift to youth-responsive systems, and cultivated youth leadership.

Advancing systematic scale-up.

On page 22, see the impact of E2A’s locally owned scale-up activities on maternal and newborn health, unmet need for family planning, young people’s access to postabortion family planning, and behavior change.

Expanding method choice.

On page 38, see how E2A partnered with governments to expand access to long-acting reversible contraceptives, brought new methods to people’s doorsteps, improved service quality, and advanced global learning.

Broadening the impact of family planning.

On page 49, learn about E2A’s work to advance couple-focused interventions and build resilience for people and the planet.

The evidence, results, and resources you’ll see in this report show just how much we can achieve together.

E2A thanks our country partners around the world who made this project possible—from government ministries and agencies, regional and global networks, professional associations, private partners, funders, health providers, and communities we served.

And I would like to share a special message with the youth leaders who made E2A their own: Thank you. As long as your passion, creativity, talent, skill, and advocacy continue to shape the next generation of family planning programs, I am hopeful for the future.

My very best,

Rita Badiani
Project Director, E2A
Pathfinder International

L'éducation complète à la sexualité (ECS) est largement reconnue comme une intervention essentielle pour promouvoir la santé et le bien-être des enfants et des adolescents. Mais où en sont les pays dans le monde en matière d'éducation sexuelle en milieu scolaire et dans quelle mesure celle-ci est-elle complète ? Le rapport à venir met en lumière les domaines dans lesquels des progrès ont été réalisés et ceux dans lesquels des lacunes importantes subsistent.

Organisé à l'approche du Forum Génération Égalité, cet événement virtuel mettra en avant les conclusions du rapport et révélera où en sont les pays dans leur cheminement vers l'ECS. Il soulignera l'importante contribution de l’ECS à l'égalité des genres et à d'autres résultats divers, et plaidera pour une action nationale afin d'apporter l'ECS à tous les apprenants à travers le monde.

L'événement sera disponible en anglais, français et espagnol. Merci de partager avec vos réseaux. Inscrivez-vous ici.

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
