What's New With the HIPs

 

Welcome to the third issue of the High Impact Practices in Family Planning (HIP) Newsletter!

The purpose of this newsletter is to inform you of new HIP materials, webinars, and other activities on a quarterly basis. Please share widely and sign up for future newsletters using the link below.

 

 

 

Engage with the HIPs

 

The HIP Partnership relies on the breadth of expertise and input from our global family planning community to ensure that HIP briefs reflect the most up-to-date programmatic and peer-reviewed evidence. There are now more ways than ever to engage with the HIP Partnership. Visit our new "Engage" section on the website to learn more about applying to be a technical expert, providing feedback on HIP briefs, submitting new concepts, and more. 

 

 

Pilot test the new "Community Feedback" feature

Interested in providing feedback on HIP briefs? Are you aware of new peer-reviewed or programmatic evidence that could strengthen existing HIP briefs? Help us pilot test a new feature for collecting ongoing community feedback on the Postabortion Family Planning and Vouchers briefs.

 

 

New HIP Briefs

The HIP partnership is pleased to feature one new and two recently-translated briefs:

 

NEW: Digital Health for FP ProvidersDigital health tools can help family planning providers deliver a higher quality of care through job aids, communication tools, training, and data. This new HIP Enhancement uses the WHO definition of digital health from the draft Global Strategy on Digital Health 2020-2024: “the field of knowledge and practice associated with the development and use of digital technologies to improve health.” Of the six building blocks of health systems identified by the WHO, this brief focuses on the first, service delivery, specifically on the ways that digital health can support service providers to deliver quality contraceptive services. Available soon in Spanish, French, and Portuguese.

Supply Chain Management and Vouchers, originally published in English in June 2020, are now available in Spanish, French, and Portuguese. 

 

 

Recent HIP Webinars

The HIP Partnership is pleased to share the recordings for three recent webinars, including one conducted in Spanish. Thank you to all of the partners who shared their time and expertise to produce these webinars!


Supply Chain Management: Investing in the supply chain is critical to achieving family planning goals: (November 2020 -
recording/slides). Key interventions and implementation tips to strengthen supply chain management include  increasing data visibility and use, accelerating product flow, professionalizing the workforce, and capitalizing the private sector capacity. A case study on Ghana followed. Presenters included HIP brief authors from the Reproductive Health Supplies Coalition Global Visibility and Analytics Network (Global VAN), the Center for Global Development, and the Ghana Health Service. Please also see the Recap of Supply Chain Management Webinar by the Knowledge SUCCESS project.

Supply Chain Management: Investing in the supply chain is critical to achieving family planning goals / Gestión de la Cadena de Suministros: Practica de Alto Impacto en Planificación Familiar (November 2020 –
recording/slides). This Spanish-language webinar was designed with El Foro Latinoamerico y del Caribe (ForoLAC) and the UNFPA Latin American and Caribbean Regional Office (LACRO) to highlight HIP implementation activities in the region in response to the challenges posed by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Moderated by the IBP Network, ForoLAC shared supply chain management implementation examples, such as stocks modeling, and UNFPA LACRO shared an analysis on the role of supply chain management in facilitating access to contraceptives in the region. 

WHO/HIP Matrix Tool (December 2020 -
recording/slides/tool) Launched by the IBP Network, this tool links the WHO Guidelines on Family Planning with the HIPs. It is intended to be a quick reference for program managers designing or implementing family planning programs by illustrating how to incorporate WHO evidence-based guidelines. It can also support advocacy efforts for HIPs by linking them with WHO Guidelines. Development of the tool was a collaborative process based on expressed needs from regional and country-based partners working on family planning programming. The tool was pre-tested and further adjusted based on feedback from partners at IBP Regional Workshops in India (2018) and in Istanbul (2019). 

 

 

Join the HIPs at ICFP's "Not Without FP" Forum

The HIPs will be featured in multiple sessions during February's "Not Without FP" Forum, hosted by the International Conference on Family Planning. See below for more information on these sessions:

The Power of Partnerships: 20 Years Implementing what works in Family Planning, February 3, 2021, 9:40 - 11:00 ET
Hosted by the IBP Network, this session will share the experiences of building a sustainable and resilient partnership that brings together diverse global voices in a neutral platform. Panelists from WHO, UNFPA, and USAID will highlight the approaches to building and sustaining the IBP Network, which supports access, implementation, and sharing of evidence-based guidelines and programmatic interventions in SRH through inspiring collaboration and knowledge sharing. The panel will be followed by a brief presentation on the future directions of the IBP Network, including its new strategic plan and community engagement platform. The session will also include updates from our global partners on their upcoming work in 2021, including an update on the new directions, products, and work of the HIPs Partnership. 

 

 

HIPs Featured by Knowledge SUCCESS 

The blog published by Knowledge SUCCESS, Is it Possible to Create a “Perfect” Family Planning Program?, examines what constitutes a “perfect” family planning program and what it would take to make it reality. The origin of the High Impact Practices in Family Planning (HIPs) is in part the identification of the 10 Elements of Family Planning Success, based on input of over 500 family planning professionals from almost 100 countries nearly 10 years ago. Prior, there was little consensus on what constituted an effective family planning program. The HIPs began with 12 evidence-based voluntary family planning practices created by a group of experts. Their task was to identify a short list of specific family planning interventions that, if implemented at scale, would help countries address the unmet need for family planning and thereby increase national contraceptive prevalence rate. HIPs have  now evolved to a set of evidence-based voluntary family planning practices covering social and behavior change, service delivery, and enabling environments.

Read the
blog to find out what respondents think are the vital components for a “perfect” family planning program.

 

 

December TAG Update

The HIPs Technical Advisory Group (TAG) held its semi-annual meeting from December 9-11, 2020, hosted by Family Planning 2020. During the virtual meeting, the TAG accomplished its goals of reviewing draft HIP materials, making recommendations about the strength and consistency of the evidence and adherence to HIP criteria, and continuing to refine HIP processes and identify priority activities.
 

Highlights from the TAG agenda include:

  • Updates on progress from the June 2020 TAG meeting
  • Review and recommendations to forthcoming HIP briefs:
    • FP & Immunization Integration
    • Social Marketing
    • Drug Shops & Pharmacies
  • Production & Dissemination (P&D) Team updates
  • Enabling Environment Briefs update

The full meeting report will be available soon on the HIP website. For more information about the TAG experts, roles, and responsibilities, click here.

Register Today! The Impact of COVID-19 on Contraceptive Commodity Supply: Global Implications from a Supply Chain Analysis of India

Elizabeth Corley
 

Join Abt Associates for a webinar to learn how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted global contraceptive supply. As a key manufacturer of many family planning commodities, India’s supply chain disruptions can have significant effects not only on product access and use within India but on global exports, as well.

The presentation will discuss findings from a COVID-19 market assessment of the Indian contraceptive supply chain and its implications for global supply chains, will explain how disruptions to the Indian market have affected global exports, and will share key policy recommendations for public and private stakeholders to help mitigate the negative impacts of the pandemic on contraceptive supply and access.

The discussants will reflect on how the pandemic has affected supply- and demand-side factors and how they have adapted global procurement processes, in-country distribution, and organizational operations in the face of COVID-19 disruptions.

Have your say on adolescent health! Public feedback on priority indicators.

Carolin Ekman
 

Public feedback on GAMA priority indicators

Share your opinion until 6 December 2020!




The Global Action for Measurement of Adolescent health (GAMA) Advisory Group was established in 2018 by WHO, with the support of partner UN agencies, to improve adolescent health measurement globally. One of GAMA’s main objectives, and its primary focus for the last two years, is to provide guidance to WHO, other UN agencies and measurement groups to define a set of priority indicators for global and national adolescent health measurement.

To meet this objective, the GAMA Advisory Group has reviewed key measurement initiatives, defined a set of core adolescent health measurement areas, and conducted a mapping of over 400 existing indicators relating to these measurement areas. Building on these efforts and with additional inputs from UN partners and others, the GAMA Advisory Group has systematically selected a draft set of priority indicators for global and national adolescent health measurement.

Access the draft set of GAMA priority adolescent health indicators here.

This draft set of indicators is being shared publicly, to enable review and feedback from the wider scientific and public health community, as well as all users of the final set of indicators at global, regional, and national levels. To provide feedback, please review the draft set of GAMA priority indicators for adolescent health measurement by completing the survey below. 
The draft set of indicators and the survey are available in English, French and Spanish.

Access the survey to provide feedback on the draft set of GAMA priority indicators for adolescent health measurement here.

FW: Opportunities to provide input and feedback to WHO Sexual Health Survey Instruments--Comments due by December 20th

Nandita Thatte
 

Dear IBP Colleagues,

 

Please see the message below from our colleagues working on Sexual Health at WHO on recent efforts to develop a global survey instrument to assess sexual health practices, behaviours and outcome. This is a good opportunity to contribute your expertise and provide input into this important work.  Please see 2 opportunities below.


Nandita

 


 

Dear colleagues,

 

Hoping everyone is keeping safe and sane.

 

We wanted to alert you to the latest developments in WHO/HRP’s effort to develop a global survey instrument to assess sexual health-related practices, behaviours and outcomes. To date, the following has taken place:

  • September-November 2019: WHO-organized open call (on our website, through networks, and over social media) to solicit examples of existing survey instruments, domains related to sexual health, implementation considerations, and creative ideas for related measures or analyses. 175 submissions were received covering all six WHO geographic regions.
  • November-December 2019: All submissions were reviewed, 139 were deemed eligible and graded by a team of judges, resulting in 46 semi-finalists. 
  • January 2020: Authors of 20 finalist submissions participated in a three-day, in-person hackathon event to develop a draft survey instrument. 
  • February-June 2020: The survey instrument was further refined through a modified Delphi process and then reviewed by subject matter experts and an additional 23 open call participants. 
  • June-September 2020: We developed a research protocol to conduct cognitive testing of the survey in multiple countries
  • 26 October – 20 December 2020: open calls for 1) comment on the survey instrument; and 2) research collaborators to conduct cognitive interviews in their country

The two simultaneous open calls running at present are as follows:

  1. Give us your feedback on the survey instrument: We’ve opened the draft survey instrument and accompanying consensus statement (outlining guiding principles to conducting this kind of research) up to the public for review. You can read more and provide your comments here.
  2. Submit a proposal to join our multi-country study: We are looking for researchers from around the world to do some limited qualitative work to assess the content validity of the survey instrument, using cognitive interviewing. Join us!  There are limited grants available to research institutions in low and lower-middle income countries. However, the scope of this research is small enough that it can be folded in with broader projects (and could conceivably serve as thesis material for qualified students). You can read more about this and access the proposal here.

 

Please feel free to disseminate these widely within you networks. Comments and proposals are due by 20 December. Please reach out to Lianne Gonsalves gonsalvesl@... with any questions/queries!

               

Warm regards,

 

Lianne
