New family planning videos have launched!

Deb Van Dyke
 

Dear colleagues,

Global Health Media Project is delighted to announce the release of our first set of videos in our family planning series:  13 films on long-acting reversible contraceptive methods, specifically the copper IUD and the implant.

For health workers, the set includes how to counsel clients on these methods, and how to insert an IUD, postpartum IUD, one-rod implant, and two-rod implant. There are two films for women and their partners about the IUD and implant.  In addition, we have created brief teaching shorts that show and tell the step-by-step information that is demonstrated in the skills videos.

We will be gradually rolling out the entire series of more than 60 videos in the coming weeks and months. 
 
The films were shot in Bangladesh, Ethiopia, and Uganda just pre-Covid, arriving home in early March 2020.  We collaborated with Ipas and Reproductive Health Uganda (IPPF affiliate) to secure clinical sites — and are grateful to colleagues from Ipas, UNFPA, WHO, ICM, and Laerdal Global Health for their content expertise throughout this project.  

These videos are available in English now, with French and Spanish available soon through support from Translators without Borders.  Please contact us if you would like to narrate them in your language.

You can watch the videos on the Global Health Media website where they are also available for download:  https://globalhealthmedia.org/videos/

To learn more about the purpose and content of these videos, visit the family planning project page:  https://globalhealthmedia.org/our-projects/family-planning-series/

Please feel free to share this announcement with your colleagues. 

Thanks and kind regards,

Deb

Examples of Communication strategies to promote early antenatal care-seeking

steink@...
 

Dear IBP Colleagues,

The Departments of Sexual and Reproductive Health and Research (SRH) and Maternal, Newborn, Child and Adolescent Health and Ageing (MCA) are currently working on a new tool to help inform the development of messaging/communication strategies used during community mobilization initiatives to promote early (within the first three months) antenatal care (ANC)-seeking.

 

 

In this process, we are looking for previous examples that have been used at local or global level, including specific messages, tools, strategies or campaigns. 

 

If you have any resources that have been used to promote early ANC care-seeking, we would greatly appreciate it if you could share them by emailing brynne.gilmore@... in the next two weeks (by Friday5th November). 

 

Thank you in advance for your support! 

Kind regards,

Innovations must take a person-centered, rights-based approach, and must involve young people with lived experiences of mental health challenges from the outset. Successful proposals will be awarded seed grants of up to $250,000 CAD to develop and test the proposed innovation.

Deadline: December 1, 2021.

[Resource] Seeking Breakthroughs in SBC at the Intersection of Family Planning and Intimate Partner Violence

Danette Wilkins
 

View this email in your browser

NEW RESOURCES
Seeking Breakthroughs in SBC at the Intersection of Family Planning and Intimate Partner Violence

Earlier this year, Breakthrough ACTION hosted the expert consultation “Seeking Breakthroughs in Social and Behavior Change at the Intersection of Family Planning and Intimate Partner Violence” to build on the work of others in strengthening understanding of the linkages between family planning (FP) and intimate partner violence (IPV) and consideration of influencing factors across the socio-ecological model and the life course.

This consultation brought together over 40 subject matter experts in FP, gender-based violence (GBV), and social and behavior change (SBC) representing more than 25 organizations around the globe. During this consultation, participants examined linkages between FP and IPV across the life course, explored SBC theories and approaches that can be applied to integrated FP/IPV programming, and identified opportunities to further advance integrated FP/IPV research and practice.

Breakthrough ACTION is now pleased to launch a new interactive online feature that provides takeaways, recommendations, and links to a detailed technical brief in English and French. Additionally, the Resource Hub provides access to the slides from presentations and you can watch and listen to recordings of the presentations on YouTube.

Dear IBP Network,

 

Please see details below for an upcoming webinar, Boosting Immunization Reach through Private Sector Engagement: Considerations for COVID-19 Vaccine Rollout Now, and Routine Immunization in the Future.

 

As one of the most cost-effective public health interventions, immunization is critical to stopping the spread of preventable infectious diseases and keeping communities and countries healthy. The private sector can play an important role in immunization service delivery and partner with governments to ensure the efficient and equitable readiness and roll out of vaccines. Join experts from U.S. Agency for International Development’s MOMENTUM suite of awards, USAID India, implementing partners from South Africa and Kenya, the World Health Organization, and other immunization partners for a webinar discussing private sector engagement in immunization service delivery, considerations for COVID-19 vaccine roll out, and the strengthening of routine immunization. Experts will share evidence and good practices for engaging the private sector in COVID-19 vaccination and routine immunization efforts and highlight examples from programs in India and South Africa. 

 

Webinar: Boosting Immunization Reach through Private Sector Engagement: Considerations for COVID-19 Vaccine Rollout Now, and Routine Immunization in the Future

In this webinar, experts will provide up-to-date evidence on key considerations for strengthening immunization programs, focusing on private sector engagement (PSE) in service delivery, both for COVID-19 vaccination and for restoring and strengthening routine immunization.

 

Attendees will hear about past evidence (pre-pandemic) and emerging good practices for engaging the private sector in COVID-19 vaccination and routine immunization efforts, and specific examples of emerging PSE in immunization programs in India and South Africa.

 

A moderated Q&A session will follow with some of the experts about common challenges and risks associated with engaging the private sector in immunization, leading to a discussion on practical ways to engage the private sector in ongoing immunization efforts.
