Submit your Ideas for a Peer Assist hosted by the FP/RH Scale-up COP on August 10

Ados May
 

Hi all,

What issues are you or your project facing related to scale? We are soliciting challenges that could benefit from discussion and expertise within our Community of Practice via a Peer Assist for the August meeting of the Systematic Approaches for Scale-Up of FP/RH Best Practices COP. Peer assists are a participatory learning technique that involves a facilitated discussion whereby peers with relevant experience share their knowledge, often in the form of lessons learned or best practices, to brainstorm solutions.

If you have a challenge you’d welcome a group of like-minded colleagues to chew on, please e-mail Sarah at sbrittingham@.... Even if you don’t have your challenge fully articulated, please reach out to let us know you are interested by July 13 - we can help. Peer assists can be particularly helpful if you are starting a new activity and would like to learn from others' experience, you've encountered a problem that others have solved, or you'd like to learn about new approaches another project has successfully implemented.

Best,

Sarah, Kirsten, Trinity, and Sarah

CALL FOR LESSONS LEARNED FROM IMPLEMENTING WHO GUIDELINES ON ABORTION CARE

 

IBP Network, based at the World Health Organization (WHO) headquarters, invites you to share your local Implementation Story on how you have used and adapted WHO guidelines and tools related to CAC. 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 to support their documentation process.  

 

Deadline: 30 June.

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.

Launch of Digital Adaptation Kit for Family Planning: Operational requirements for implementing WHO recommendations in digital systems

Nandita Thatte
 

FYI... New Digital Adaptation Kit for Family Planning 

Begin forwarded message:

From: HRP Communication <hrpcommunication@...>
Date: 26 June 2021 
Subject: Launch of Digital Adaptation Kit for Family Planning: Operational requirements for implementing WHO recommendations in digital systems



Dear colleagues,

 

The new Digital Adaptation Kit (DAK) for Family Planning supports countries implementing WHO contraception and family planning recommendations in their digital systems.

Digital Adaptation Kits, known as DAKs, are a critical layer in WHO’s SMART Guidelines approach to making global guidance more effective across all areas of health and wellbeing.

As countries increasingly invest in digital technologies for health system strengthening, and COVID-19 further accelerates the rise of digital health, DAKs ensure that people – both implementers and users – remain at the heart of the digital journey.

The DAK for Family Planning was developed by WHOHRPUNFPAJSI, and PATH. At WHO, it was jointly led by the Department of Sexual and Reproductive Health and Research (SRH), including the United Nations Special Programme HRP, and the Department of Digital Health and Innovation (DHI).

This DAK uses the algorithms developed from the medical eligibility for contraceptive methods and the WHO MEC app. It also addresses the broader spectrum of quality of care, including screening, testing and counselling for choosing and managing contraceptive methods, care and support for survivors of intimate partner and sexual violence, and considerations for adolescent well-being and promoting self-care interventions to ensure quality of care remains at the heart of the digital journey.

SMART Guidelines from WHO: The DAK for antenatal care (ANC) launched earlier this year, and the approach is being expanded to other health domains. DAKs for HIV and STIs are forthcoming, and DAKs for immunizations, postnatal care (PNC), child health, and self-care interventions are in development. Learn more about the SMART Guideline approach here.

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

Olivia Carlson
 

*Disponible en Français / Disponible en Español / Disponível em Português

 

Breakthrough ACTION is launching 10 Lives, 10 Stories, One Message, a global competition for compelling human-interest stories that demonstrate the power of social and behavior change (SBC) to improve family planning and reproductive health outcomes.

 

First place winners will each be awarded the opportunity to work with a production company—free of charge—to create a two-minute video that tells their story. The videos will be shared at a launch event and promoted by Breakthrough ACTION, USAID, and FP2030 as global examples of SBC’s role in improving reproductive health. These high-quality videos can also be used by finalists for their own media and program promotion.

 

Each of the second place winners’ stories will be turned into a story brief and promoted alongside the videos at the launch event and by Breakthrough ACTION, USAID, and FP2030.

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.
