Their Futures: MSI Insights on World Youth Day

olivia jardine
 

View this email in your browser

 

Reproductive choice can be life-changing for young people. With information on their health and rights, young people can understand their bodies, have safe relationships on their terms, avoid unintended pregnancy and determine their own futures.

Yet, globally, teenagers find it harder to access their reproductive choices. From prevailing stigma and misinformation to needless restrictions that require parental or partner consent, an estimated 23 million adolescent girls want access to contraception, but don't have it.

To help transform access, in 2017, MSI launched our adolescent strategy and have supported over 4.6 million adolescents to access reproductive choice since.

Marking International Youth Day today, we're sharing a round-up of our lessons learned along the way and how we can partner to transform access, together.

 

 

 

Closing the Gap - 3 learnings on expanding choice for rural adolescents 

Increased stigma, poverty and longer journey times can all make it harder for rural young people to access reproductive choice. 

From partnering with community influencers to adapting services to offer discreet visits, we have taken a tailored approach to reaching rural adolescents. Find out more in our Youth Day blog post.

Read our 3 lessons on reaching rural young people

 

 

MSI’s Adolescent Strategy – delivering reproductive choice to young people 

With teenage girls in low- and middle-income countries almost twice as likely as women of all reproductive ages to want access to contraception, but not yet have it, we knew we needed a tailored strategy to level the playing field. 

In 2017, we used our learnings and data so far to form our first adolescent strategy, focused on finding the right recipe for reaching young women. 

Read our strategy two-pager

 

 

Spotlight webinar: Sex, stigma & young people – challenging social norms to empower adolescents 

Cultural and social taboos can hold young people back from accessing their sexual and reproductive healthcare and rights. 

Last June, we were joined by partners at PSI and Pathfinder to discuss how we can shift these social norms, by engaging community leaders, supporting couples to plan together and training providers to deliver adolescent-friendly healthcare. 

Watch the webinar

 

 

Her Body, Her Future: The role of reproductive choice in girls’ access to education 

Analysis from MSI has shown that increasing adolescent access to reproductive choice could support up to four million more girls to stay in school every year across sub-Saharan Africa. 

In our two-page briefing, Her Body, Her Future, find out how we can support girls to access a quality education and pursue their futures, with comprehensive sexuality education and reproductive choice.

How can midwives support and promote self-care among young people? What factors help healthcare providers facilitate client uptake and continuation of preventive self-care behaviors and products?” Participants will also engage in discussion and Q&A with panelists, and partake in small-group exercises to unpack the barriers and benefits for provider-supported self-care, the shifts needed among healthcare providers, and what support is needed to assist healthcare providers in this evolution of their role.

Let's help #girlschooseschool

olivia jardine
 

 

 

This week, the UK Government will co-host the Global Education Summit, with a focus on girls' education. However, when millions of girls are forced out of school every year due to unplanned pregnancy, current cuts to reproductive health put these global commitments at risk. Join MSI in showing how reproductive choice can help #GirlsChooseSchool.

When girls can access a quality education, they are better able to pursue a career, create opportunities in their communities and drive positive change in wider society. Each additional school year can increase a woman’s earnings by up to 20%

As shared in MSI’s two-pager, Her Body, Her Future: The role of reproductive choice in girls’ access to education, our analysis shows that increasing access to reproductive healthcare services for young people could support up to four million more girls in sub-Saharan Africa to stay in school, every year.

 

 

At the Global Education Summit, MSI and partners will be calling for governments and donors to seize the moment and ensure that access to sexual and reproductive healthcare is part of the global education response.

On Monday 26th July, MSI joined partners at Plan International, UNFPA, FCDO, SheDecides and more for an official summit side event on how we can support more girls to stay in school with reproductive choice and comprehensive sexuality education. You can watch the event back on YouTube.

To ensure reproductive choice remains on the agenda, throughout the week, MSI will be sharing frontline stories from our programmes on how reproductive choice is helping #GirlsChooseSchool

Please join us in ensuring the linkages between reproductive choice and girls’ education are made by tweeting via #GirlsChooseSchool, tagging @msichoices, or by using one of the following tweets:

  • A lack of access to reproductive choice for young people puts #GES2021 commitments on girls' education at risk. Join @MSIchoices in calling on governments to help #GirlsChooseSchool with access to the healthcare they need to determine their own futures: https://bit.ly/3iQTOsv
     
  • Across sub-Saharan Africa, up to 4 million girls are forced to leave school every year due to pregnancy. 
    By supporting girls to access reproductive choice, governments at the #GES2021 can help #GirlsChooseSchool. 
    @MSIchoices https://bit.ly/3iQTOsv

 

 

It only costs £6 per year – or 2 pence / 3 cents per day – for MSI to provide a woman or girl with life-changing reproductive healthcare, giving them the power to decide if or when to become pregnant.

This reproductive choice helps keep girls in school, supports women to lead, and helps build more equal and sustainable communities. Join us in making choice possible.

Dear Colleagues,

You are cordially invited to an official virtual side event of the Global Education Summit, Increasing Aid for Girls’ Education and Family Planning in the West African Sahel. Combined, these two investments could shift demographic trends, dramatically improve the well-being of families, and pave the way for peace in the region.* The meeting is being hosted by OASIS, with our partners, Centre for Girls Education, L’Initiative OASIS Niger, and the Ouagadougou Partnership Coordination Unit. 

This virtual event will enable us to find and engage new allies within governments and the donor community. One way you could support us is by recommending this event to key stakeholders from the Sahel and beyond by forwarding this email. We would also appreciate being introduced to relevant contacts for advocacy efforts following the event. Should you have any other ideas for event promotion, or any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact one of us or email oasis@...

The meeting agenda is forthcoming. Speakers will represent Sahel governments, bilateral donor agencies, academia and civil society.

We look forward to seeing you at our virtual event on Tuesday, July 27th from 13:00 - 17:00 GMT+1 (5:00 - 9:00 am PDT). Please click the link below to register for the meeting, which will be held on Zoom.

New Resources - Social Norms Related to Reproductive Health for Adolescent Girls and Young Women in Burundi (FR + ENG)

Jamie Greenberg
 

The Passages Project is happy to share new resources from a qualitative study in Burundi that explored social norms related to reproductive health behaviors among unmarried adolescent girls and young women (15-19 years). The study simultaneously aimed to identify relevant individuals and groups who influence and uphold these social norms (key influencers). Focus group discussions with adolescent girls and young women and key influencers focused on four domains of inquiry: 1) menstruation and menstrual hygiene management, 2) sexual risk behaviors, 3) sexual violence, and 4) fertility and voluntary family planning use. The study report is now available in English and French and a webinar recording and presentation are available in French.

 

Passages a mené une étude qualitative au Burundi qui a exploré les normes sociales liées aux comportements de santé reproductive chez les adolescentes et les jeunes femmes célibataires (15-19 ans). L'étude visait simultanément à identifier les individus et les groupes pertinents qui influencent et maintiennent ces normes sociales (influenceurs clés). Les discussions de groupe avec des adolescentes et des jeunes femmes et des influenceurs clés se sont concentrées sur quatre domaines d'enquête : 1) la gestion des menstruations et de l'hygiène menstruelle, 2) les comportements sexuels à risque, 3) la violence sexuelle et 4) la fertilité et l'utilisation de la planification familiale volontaire. Le rapport d'étude est maintenant disponible en anglais et en français et un enregistrement et une présentation du webinaire sont disponibles en français.

Diagnostic Testing for COVID-19 in LMICs: Complete the survey!

Laila HARRAS-PELLETIER
 

Dear colleagues,

I am writing to you on behalf of the COVID-19 Clinical Research Coalition.
There is concern about the lack of diagnostic testing for COVID-19 in many low- and middle-income countries. Contexts can vary widely, and there can be many reasons for the lack of COVID-19 testing, ranging from supply, distribution, and demand-side issues to cost, capacity, and prioritization. Key entities are monitoring and supporting COVID-19 testing, including the Africa CDC, PAHO and others at regional levels, and WHO, ACT-A, FIND and others at the global level.

To help inform advocacy and communications on diagnostics, we are sharing a short survey (5 minutes or less), intended to be a “pulse check” regarding the current situation.
COMPLETE THE SURVEY
Thank you in advance for sharing what you know, and for sharing this survey within your networks.

Best wishes,
