Request for literature on implementation strategies to scale up self-administered DMPA-SC injections

Adeniyi Aderoba
 

Dear Colleagues,

 

The Contraception and Fertility Care Unit of the UNDP–UNFPA–UNICEF–WHO–World Bank Special Programme of Research, Development and Research Training in Human Reproduction (HRP), Department of Sexual Reproductive Health and Research, at the World Health Organization has commissioned a scoping review on the strategies to scale up self-administered subcutaneous depot medroxyprogesterone acetate (DMPA-SC) injections. This will aid a better understanding of the barriers that prevent effective implementation of self-administered DMPA-SC programs and provide solutions to these implementation problems.

 

Research has shown that the self-administration of DMPA-SC is a feasible, safe, and effective contraceptive method. Users who self-administered DMPA-SC show higher continuation rates at one year compared with those who had provider-administered injections. DMPA-SC has been registered for self-injection in many countries. Still, there are challenges to interventions to roll out this new efficacious contraceptive method, and major implementation issues have been encountered for scale-up. Another challenge is that many of these interventions are described in the grey literature and not published in peer-reviewed publications.

 

Therefore, we are keen to identify any literature, including academic articles, white papers, (project) reports, measurement tools or topic guides, etc., covering issues related to implementation strategies to scale up self-administered DMPA-SC injections. If you are aware of this literature, kindly share the electronic file with us (adeniyi.aderoba@... or steynp@...) before 7th December 2021.

 

The protocol for the scoping review can be accessed by clicking here, and the results will be shared with you once it is completed.

 

Thanks in advance for your contributions,

 

The Scoping Review Team

Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights Infographic Country Snapshots

Register today! https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/8000713326956076299

 

 

 

Realization of sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) requires the provision of comprehensive, people-centred services, that address different, often interconnected components of SRHR, and that are supported by an enabling environment, quality health systems, and meaningful community engagement. Data on SRHR is routinely collected but it is often difficult to get the scope and complexity at the country level of the interconnected components.

 

In December, a set of country-specific infographic snapshots on SRHR are being launched for all 194 WHO member states that will provide a ‘one-stop’ overview bringing together publicly available SRHR data from verified sources. By highlighting the national SRHR situation – including successes, areas for improvement, data gaps, and innovative approaches such as self-care interventions – these infographic snapshots can be used by policy makers, researchers and civil societies for determining priorities, planning programmes, resource mobilization, and strengthening health systems, service delivery and community engagement.

 

WHO and UNFPA invite you to this webinar, hosted by The IBP Network, where the SRHR infographic snapshots will be presented and where we will unpack the importance of having comprehensive SRHR data.

Can DMPA-SC Self-injection Bridge a Family Planning Access Gap in Humanitarian Settings?

Wednesday, November 17, 2021 | 7:30–9:00 AM EST | 12:30–200 PM GMT | 3:30–5:00 PM EAT

 

The PATH-JSI DMPA-SC Access Collaborative invites you to a webinar on making self-care interventions available, including DMPA-SC self-injection, in humanitarian settings. Humanitarian crises and disease outbreaks exacerbate the barriers that women face when seeking reproductive health services. They also highlight a timeless truth: women must be able to manage their own sexual and reproductive health—especially in a crisis when health systems are at their weakest.

 

Through this virtual discussion, we aim to address key challenges in humanitarian settings that need to be addressed in order to leverage the potential of self-injection as an option to ease access to family planning in the context of a full method mix.

 

Discussion highlights will include:

  • Programmatic or regulatory actions that need to be implemented
  • Country-specific cultural barriers affecting demand generation in humanitarian settings
  • Supply systems and processes in humanitarian settings compared to national systems
  • Collaboration and data sharing between agencies

 

The webinar will encourage all stakeholders—program implementers, researchers, government officials, health providers, and members of civil society—to consider humanitarian sector perspectives when advocating for policies that advance self-care behaviors and commodities essential to improving health outcomes in crisis settings.

 

This discussion will be moderated by George Barigye, Regional Technical Advisor, DMPA-SC Access Collaborative, PATH, Uganda.

 

Panelists:

  • Lilian Ndinda, Maternal and Child Health Coordinator, International Rescue Committee, South Sudan
  • Dr. Arsenia Nhancale, Program Analyst, Family Planning and HIV, United Nations Population Fund, Mozambique
  • Dr. Ronald Nyakoojo, Assistant Public Health Officer (Reproductive Health/HIV), United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, Uganda
  • Roselline Achola, National Programme Analyst, Family Planning, United Nations Population Fund, Uganda
  • Teddy Inera, Assistant Settlement Commandant, Focal Person for Health, Kiryandongo Refugee Settlement, Uganda

L'auto-injection de DMPA-SC peut-elle combler l'écart d'accès à la planification familiale dans les contextes humanitaires ?

Mercredi 17 novembre 2021 | 7h30–9h00 EST |12h30-200 GMT | 15h30-17h00 EAT

 

Le Collaboratif pour l’Accès au DMPA-SC de PATH-JSI vous invite à un webinaire sur la mise à disposition d’interventions d’auto-soins, y compris l’auto-injection DMPA-SC, dans les contextes humanitaires. Les crises humanitaires et les épidémies exacerbent les obstacles auxquels les femmes sont confrontées lorsqu’elles recherchent des services de santé reproductive. Cela met également en évidence une vérité intemporelle : les femmes doivent être en mesure de gérer leur propre santé sexuelle et reproductive, en particulier en cas de crise lorsque les systèmes de santé sont les plus faibles.

 

À travers cette discussion virtuelle, nous visons à relever les principaux défis dans les contextes humanitaires qui doivent être abordés afin de tirer parti du potentiel de l’auto-injection en tant qu’option pour faciliter l’accès à la planification familiale dans le contexte d’une gamme de méthodes complète.

 

Les points saillants de la discussion comprendront :

  • Actions programmatiques ou réglementaires à mettre en œuvre
  • Obstacles culturels spécifique au pays, qui affectent la demande dans les contextes humanitaires
  • Systèmes et processus d’approvisionnement dans les contextes humanitaires par rapport aux systèmes nationaux
  • Collaboration et partage de données entre les agences

 

Cette discussion encouragera toutes les parties prenantes – responsables de la mise en œuvre des programmes, chercheurs, responsables gouvernementaux, prestataires de soins de santé et membres de la société civile – à prendre en compte les perspectives du secteur humanitaire lorsqu’elles préconisent des politiques qui font progresser les comportements et les produits d’auto-soins essentiels à l’amélioration des résultats en matière de santé dans les contextes de crise.

 

Cette discussion sera modérée par George Barigye, Conseiller Technique Régional, Le Collaboratif pour l’Accès au DMPA-SC, PATH, Ouganda.

 

Panélistes :

 

  • Lilian Ndinda, Coordonnatrice de la santé maternelle et infantile, International Rescue Committee, Soudan du Sud
  • Dr. Arsenia Nhancale, Analyste de programme, Planification familiale et VIH, Fonds des Nations Unies pour la Population, Mozambique
  • Dr. Ronald Nyakoojo, Assistant Agent de santé publique (Santé reproductive/VIH), Haut-Commissariat des Nations Unies pour les Réfugiés, Ouganda)
  • Roselline Achola, Analyste des programmes nationaux, Planification Familiale, Fonds des Nations Unies pour la Population, Ouganda
  • Teddy Inera, Commandant adjoint pour les refugies, Personne Focale santé, Kiryandongo Refugee Settlement, Ouganda

A auto-injeção de DMPA-SC pode preencher uma lacuna de acesso ao planeamento familiar em contextos humanitários?

Quarta, 17 de novembro de 2021 | 7:30-9:00AM EST | 12:30-200 PM GMT | 15:30-17:00 EAT

 

DMPA-SC Access Collaborative da PATH-JSI convida-o a participar num webinar sobre a disponibilização de intervenções de auto-cuidado, incluindo a auto-injecção de DMPA-SC,  em ambientes humanitários. Crises humanitárias e surtos de doenças exacerbam as barreiras que as mulheres enfrentam quando procuram serviços de saúde reprodutiva. Destacam também uma verdade intemporal: as mulheres devem ser capazes de gerir a sua própria saúde sexual e reprodutiva, especialmente numa crise em que os sistemas de saúde estão no seu ponto mais fraco.

Através desta discussão virtual, pretendemos abordar os principais desafios em contextos humanitários  que precisam de ser abordados de modo a alavancar o potencial da auto-injecção como opção para facilitar o acesso ao planeamento familiar no contexto de uma mistura completa de métodos.

 

Os destaques da discussão incluirão:

  • Ações programáticas ou regulamentares que precisam de ser implementadas
  • Barreiras culturais específicas por país que afectam a geração de demanda em ambientes humanitários
  • Sistemas e processos de aprovisionamento em contextos humanitários em comparação com os sistemas nacionais
  • Colaboração e partilha de dados entre agências

 

Esta discussão incentivará todas as partes interessadas — implementadores de programas, investigadores, funcionários do governo, provedores de saúde e membros da sociedade civil — a considerar perspectivas do sector humanitário ao defender políticas que promovem comportamentos de auto-cuidado e mercadorias essenciais para melhorar os resultados da saúde em contextos de crise.

 

Esta discussão será moderada por George Barigye, Assessor Técnico Regional, DMPA-SC Access Collaborative, PATH, Uganda.

 

Painelistas:

  • Lilian Ndinda, Coordenadora de Saúde Materna e Infantil, International Rescue Committee, Sudão do Sul

Webinar: How can drug shops best be engaged to strengthen health care systems? - November 16th, 15:00-16:00 CET

Webinar: How can drug shops best be engaged to strengthen health care systems?

16 November 2021 15:00 – 16:00 CET

 

Private medicine retailers are often the first port of call when people need essential medicines and basic health care, especially in rural areas. However, these drug shops and retailers often operate outside the formal medical system in low- and middle-income countries, raising concerns about the quality of the products and services on offer. This poses a challenge for formal health care systems: should there be regulations and restrictions on these informal providers, or can they be engaged to improve the reach of health services? And if so, how?

A new special issue of the Journal of Pharmaceutical Policy and Practice showcases findings from seven research studies on drug shops across Bangladesh, Indonesia, Myanmar, Nigeria, the United Republic of Tanzania and Zambia. The studies were part of a multi-country implementation research programme developed by the Alliance for Health Policy and Systems Research and the Implementing Best Practices (IBP) Network – both at WHO – with support from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).

This webinar will present detailed findings from Indonesia and Nigeria and have a panel discussion to synthesize findings across the countries studied.

Dear colleagues,

 

The Contraceptive and Method Choice Community of Practice is now convened by USAID’s MOMENTUM Country and Global Leadership (MCGL) and MOMENTUM Private Healthcare Delivery (MPHD) projects. We thank our colleagues at the Evidence 2 Action project for all their contributions and leadership of the COP over the years!

 

As we take this next step, we’d greatly appreciate your thoughts on how to continue to build a vibrant, dynamic, and engaging COP so that we can best share successes, learning, and challenges to improve the provision and reach of high-quality, person-centered, and evidence-based FP programs for individuals, couples, families, and communities. We ask for a few minutes of your time and your candid feedback through this very brief survey, which will be open through Friday, November 19.

 

We know how busy our community is, and how valuable your time is. We appreciate hearing your voice as we think towards future meetings and events in 2022 and beyond!

Webinar 17 Nov: Self-injection in humanitarian settings | Auto-injection dans les contextes humanitaires | Auto-injeção em contextos humanitários

Beth Balderston
 

Traduction française ci-dessous | Tradução em português abaixo

 

Can DMPA-SC Self-injection Bridge a Family Planning Access Gap in Humanitarian Settings?

Wednesday, November 17, 2021 | 7:30–9:00 AM EST | 12:30–200 PM GMT | 3:30–5:00 PM EAT

 

The PATH-JSI DMPA-SC Access Collaborative invites you to a webinar on making self-care interventions available, including DMPA-SC self-injection, in humanitarian settings. Humanitarian crises and disease outbreaks exacerbate the barriers that women face when seeking reproductive health services. They also highlight a timeless truth: women must be able to manage their own sexual and reproductive health—especially in a crisis when health systems are at their weakest.

 

Through this virtual discussion, we aim to address key challenges in humanitarian settings that need to be addressed in order to leverage the potential of self-injection as an option to ease access to family planning in the context of a full method mix.

 

Discussion highlights will include:

  • Programmatic or regulatory actions that need to be implemented
  • Country-specific cultural barriers affecting demand generation in humanitarian settings
  • Supply systems and processes in humanitarian settings compared to national systems
  • Collaboration and data sharing between agencies

 

The webinar will encourage all stakeholders—program implementers, researchers, government officials, health providers, and members of civil society—to consider humanitarian sector perspectives when advocating for policies that advance self-care behaviors and commodities essential to improving health outcomes in crisis settings.

 

This discussion will be moderated by George Barigye, Regional Technical Advisor, DMPA-SC Access Collaborative, PATH, Uganda.

 

Panelists:

  • Lilian Ndinda, Maternal and Child Health Coordinator, International Rescue Committee, South Sudan
  • Dr. Arsenia Nhancale, Program Analyst, Family Planning and HIV, United Nations Population Fund, Mozambique
  • Dr. Ronald Nyakoojo, Assistant Public Health Officer (Reproductive Health/HIV), United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, Uganda
  • Roselline Achola, National Programme Analyst, Family Planning, United Nations Population Fund, Uganda
  • Teddy Inera, Assistant Settlement Commandant, Focal Person for Health, Kiryandongo Refugee Settlement, Uganda

 

This event will be held in English with simultaneous French and Portuguese interpretation provided. Please register in advance at: http://tinyurl.com/17Nov2021

 


 

L'auto-injection de DMPA-SC peut-elle combler l'écart d'accès à la planification familiale dans les contextes humanitaires ?

Mercredi 17 novembre 2021 | 7h30–9h00 EST |12h30-200 GMT | 15h30-17h00 EAT

 

Le Collaboratif pour l’Accès au DMPA-SC de PATH-JSI vous invite à un webinaire sur la mise à disposition d’interventions d’auto-soins, y compris l’auto-injection DMPA-SC, dans les contextes humanitaires. Les crises humanitaires et les épidémies exacerbent les obstacles auxquels les femmes sont confrontées lorsqu’elles recherchent des services de santé reproductive. Cela met également en évidence une vérité intemporelle : les femmes doivent être en mesure de gérer leur propre santé sexuelle et reproductive, en particulier en cas de crise lorsque les systèmes de santé sont les plus faibles.

 

À travers cette discussion virtuelle, nous visons à relever les principaux défis dans les contextes humanitaires qui doivent être abordés afin de tirer parti du potentiel de l’auto-injection en tant qu’option pour faciliter l’accès à la planification familiale dans le contexte d’une gamme de méthodes complète.

 

Les points saillants de la discussion comprendront :

  • Actions programmatiques ou réglementaires à mettre en œuvre
  • Obstacles culturels spécifique au pays, qui affectent la demande dans les contextes humanitaires
  • Systèmes et processus d’approvisionnement dans les contextes humanitaires par rapport aux systèmes nationaux
  • Collaboration et partage de données entre les agences

 

Cette discussion encouragera toutes les parties prenantes – responsables de la mise en œuvre des programmes, chercheurs, responsables gouvernementaux, prestataires de soins de santé et membres de la société civile – à prendre en compte les perspectives du secteur humanitaire lorsqu’elles préconisent des politiques qui font progresser les comportements et les produits d’auto-soins essentiels à l’amélioration des résultats en matière de santé dans les contextes de crise.

 

Cette discussion sera modérée par George Barigye, Conseiller Technique Régional, Le Collaboratif pour l’Accès au DMPA-SC, PATH, Ouganda.

 

Panélistes :

 

  • Lilian Ndinda, Coordonnatrice de la santé maternelle et infantile, International Rescue Committee, Soudan du Sud
  • Dr. Arsenia Nhancale, Analyste de programme, Planification familiale et VIH, Fonds des Nations Unies pour la Population, Mozambique
  • Dr. Ronald Nyakoojo, Assistant Agent de santé publique (Santé reproductive/VIH), Haut-Commissariat des Nations Unies pour les Réfugiés, Ouganda)
  • Roselline Achola, Analyste des programmes nationaux, Planification Familiale, Fonds des Nations Unies pour la Population, Ouganda
  • Teddy Inera, Commandant adjoint pour les refugies, Personne Focale santé, Kiryandongo Refugee Settlement, Ouganda

 

Cet événement se déroulera en anglais avec une interprétation simultanée en français et en portugais. Veuillez-vous inscrire à l’avance : http://tinyurl.com/17Nov2021

 


 

A auto-injeção de DMPA-SC pode preencher uma lacuna de acesso ao planeamento familiar em contextos humanitários?

Quarta, 17 de novembro de 2021 | 7:30-9:00AM EST | 12:30-200 PM GMT | 15:30-17:00 EAT

 

DMPA-SC Access Collaborative da PATH-JSI convida-o a participar num webinar sobre a disponibilização de intervenções de auto-cuidado, incluindo a auto-injecção de DMPA-SC,  em ambientes humanitários. Crises humanitárias e surtos de doenças exacerbam as barreiras que as mulheres enfrentam quando procuram serviços de saúde reprodutiva. Destacam também uma verdade intemporal: as mulheres devem ser capazes de gerir a sua própria saúde sexual e reprodutiva, especialmente numa crise em que os sistemas de saúde estão no seu ponto mais fraco.

Através desta discussão virtual, pretendemos abordar os principais desafios em contextos humanitários  que precisam de ser abordados de modo a alavancar o potencial da auto-injecção como opção para facilitar o acesso ao planeamento familiar no contexto de uma mistura completa de métodos.

 

Os destaques da discussão incluirão:

  • Ações programáticas ou regulamentares que precisam de ser implementadas
  • Barreiras culturais específicas por país que afectam a geração de demanda em ambientes humanitários
  • Sistemas e processos de aprovisionamento em contextos humanitários em comparação com os sistemas nacionais
  • Colaboração e partilha de dados entre agências

 

Esta discussão incentivará todas as partes interessadas — implementadores de programas, investigadores, funcionários do governo, provedores de saúde e membros da sociedade civil — a considerar perspectivas do sector humanitário ao defender políticas que promovem comportamentos de auto-cuidado e mercadorias essenciais para melhorar os resultados da saúde em contextos de crise.

 

Esta discussão será moderada por George Barigye, Assessor Técnico Regional, DMPA-SC Access Collaborative, PATH, Uganda.

 

Painelistas:

  • Lilian Ndinda, Coordenadora de Saúde Materna e Infantil, International Rescue Committee, Sudão do Sul
  • Dr. Arsenia Nhancale, Analista de Programas, Planeamento Familiar e HIV, Fundo das Nações Unidas para a População, Moçambique
  • Dr. Ronald Nyakoojo, Assistente de Saúde Pública (Saúde Reprodutiva/HIV), Alto Comissariado das Nações Unidas para os Refugiados, Uganda
  • Roselline Achola, Analista do Programa Nacional, Planeamento Familiar, Fundo das Nações Unidas para a População, Uganda
  • Teddy Inera, Comandante Assistente de Assentamento, Ponto Focal para Saúde, Assentamento de Refugiados de Kiryandongo, Uganda

About the Speakers

Samantha Power

Administrator, USAID

Samantha Power was sworn into office as the 19th Administrator of USAID on May 3, 2021.

In leading the world’s premier international development agency and its global staff of over 10,000 people, Power will focus on helping the United States respond to four interconnected challenges: the COVID-19 pandemic and the development gains it has imperiled; climate change; conflict and humanitarian crises; and democratic backsliding. Power will also ensure that USAID enhances its longstanding leadership in areas including food security, education, women’s empowerment, and global health.

Additionally, Power is the first USAID Administrator to be a member of the National Security Council, where she will ensure that development plays a critical role in America’s responses to a range of economic, humanitarian, and geopolitical issues.

Prior to joining the Biden-Harris Administration, Power was the Anna Lindh Professor of the Practice of Global Leadership and Public Policy at Harvard Kennedy School and the William D. Zabel Professor of Practice in Human Rights at Harvard Law School. From 2013 to 2017, Power served in the Obama-Biden Administration as the 28th US Permanent Representative to the United Nations. During her time at the UN, Power rallied countries to combat the Ebola epidemic, ratify the Paris climate agreement, and develop new international law to cripple ISIS’s financial networks. She worked to negotiate and implement the ambitious Sustainable Development Goals, helped catalyze bold international commitments to care for refugees, and advocated to secure the release of political prisoners, defend civil society from growing repression, and protect the rights of women and girls.

From 2009 to 2013, Power served on the National Security Council staff as Special Assistant to the President and Senior Director for Multilateral Affairs and Human Rights. At the NSC, she advised the Obama-Biden Administration on issues such as democracy promotion, UN reform, LGBTQ+ and women’s rights, atrocity prevention, and the fights against human trafficking and global corruption.

An immigrant from Ireland, Power began her career as a war correspondent in Bosnia, and went on to report from places including Kosovo, Rwanda, Sudan, and Zimbabwe. She was the founding executive director of the Carr Center for Human Rights Policy at the Harvard Kennedy School, and has been recognized as one of Time’s “100 Most Influential People,” one of Foreign Policy’s “Top 100 Global Thinkers,” and by Forbes as one of the “World’s 100 Most Powerful Women.” Power is an author and editor of multiple books, and the recipient of the 2003 Pulitzer Prize for Nonfiction.

Power earned a B.A. from Yale University and a J.D. from Harvard Law School.
 

Liz Schrayer (Introductory Remarks)

President and CEO, U.S. Global Leadership Coalition

Liz Schrayer serves as President and CEO of the U.S. Global Leadership Coalition (USGLC), a broad-based coalition of over 500 businesses and NGOs that advocates for strong U.S. global leadership through development and diplomacy. Under her leadership, the USGLC has grown to a nationwide network of advocates in all 50 states and boasts a bipartisan Advisory Council, which includes virtually every living former Secretary of State, and a National Security Advisory Council consisting of nearly 200 retired three and four-star generals and admirals.
 

Katryna Mahoney (Moderator)

Georgetown University, Walsh School of Foreign Service, MA in Global Human Development

As a cultural anthropologist by training, and development practitioner in the making, Katryna Mahoney is curious about how individuals and collectives make meaning of lives in an effort to create and sustain inclusive societies.

Inspired by her undergraduate study abroad expedition to Rabat, Morocco in 2013 as a Gilman Scholar, Katryna returned to Morocco for 15 months as a Fulbright researcher to explore the socio-economic participation of West and Central African migrants in Casablanca. Fostering these interests, Katryna worked as a consultant for the Global Forum on Migration and Development (GFMD) in Geneva. She also led communications and advocacy efforts at Civitas Maxima, a Geneva-based legal representation of victims of war crimes and crimes against humanity. Currently, Katryna works as a Program Associate for Protection on the Humanitarian Policy and Practice Team at InterAction, reducing the risks that people face in humanitarian crises through promoting results-based approaches to protection.

Katryna holds an M.Sc. in Migration Studies from Oxford University and a B.A. in Anthropology & Sociology from Spelman College. She is from Maryland and currently resides in Washington, D.C. In her free time, Katryna can be found tending to her plant garden or giving thanks and sun salutations.

She will pursue graduate studies in international development in preparation for entering the USAID Foreign Service as a Crisis, Stabilization, and Governance Officer. Katryna considers herself privileged to carry out the legacy of the late Congressman Payne as a 2020 USAID Payne Fellow.

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
