INSIDE THE FP STORY PODCAST

 

 

Episode Five:

Innovating To Meet Clients' Needs

 

 

In the fifth episode of Inside the FP Story, we'll shift gears to focus on overall systems and policies that are improving family planning programs. Listen in to hear how:

  • In Burkina Faso, Jhpiego worked with multiple partners to strengthen the national pre-service education system for midwifery and obstetrics and gynecology students
  • In India, Population Services International India, in collaboration with the national health mission and several local governments, implemented a fixed-day static approach for family planning, making a wide variety of contraceptive methods available

We'll explore innovations that meet family planning clients’ needs, and create enabling environments that allow family planning programs to be successful.

Finding the right fit: Using segmentation approaches to shape your social and
behavior change programming

(En français)


9 February
9:00-10:00 am EST (New York)/3:00-4:00 pm WAT (Niamey)/7:30-8:30 pm IST (New Delhi) 



Breakthrough RESEARCH webinar
 

Engage with Breakthrough RESEARCH and partners in a discussion about how you can apply segmentation approaches to advance your social and behavior change (SBC) work.

 

Breakthrough RESEARCH developed a set of research and learning agendas (RLAs) that identified priority questions for SBC evidence generation. A persistent challenge reflected in the RLAs was a need for better understanding of who to reach, how to reach them, and with what kind of SBC programming. Segmentation methodologies are a set of evidence generation approaches that facilitate a more in-depth and nuanced understanding of the individual and contextual drivers of behavior. These approaches have the potential to help us design and evaluate appropriate SBC interventions.

In this webinar we invite you to engage with us on how segmentation approaches are being applied to current SBC work across various health areas and with different audiences. Panelists include experts from Surgo Ventures, Camber Collective, and Breakthrough ACTION + RESEARCH who have used these approaches, developed frameworks and tools, and are working with implementers to develop innovative SBC interventions globally.


 

 


Trouver la bonne personne : utiliser des approches de segmentation pour façonner votre programme de changement social et comportemental

9 Février
9h00 à 10h00 EST (New York)/15h00 à 16h00 WAT (Niamey)/19h30 à 20h30 IST (New Delhi)



Breakthrough RESEARCH webinaire

 

Participez à une discussion avec Breakthrough RESEARCH et ses partenaires sur la façon dont vous pouvez appliquer des approches de segmentation pour faire avancer votre travail de changement social et comportemental (CSC).

 

Breakthrough RESEARCH a développé un ensemble de programmes de recherche et d'apprentissage (RLA) qui identifient les questions prioritaires pour la génération de preuves CSC. Un défi persistant reflété dans les RLA était le besoin de mieux comprendre qui atteindre, comment les atteindre et avec quel type de programmation CSC. Les méthodologies de segmentation sont un ensemble d'approches de génération de preuves qui facilitent une compréhension plus approfondie et nuancée des facteurs individuels et contextuels du comportement. Ces approches ont le potentiel de nous aider à concevoir et à évaluer des interventions CSC appropriées.

Dans ce webinaire, nous vous invitons à discuter avec nous de la manière dont les approches de segmentation sont appliquées au travail actuel du CSC dans divers domaines de la santé et auprès de différents publics. Les panélistes comprennent des experts de Surgo Ventures, Camber Collective et Breakthrough ACTION + RESEARCH qui ont utilisé ces approches, développé des cadres et des outils, et travaillent avec des exécutants pour développer des interventions innovantes de CSC à l'échelle mondiale.


 

 

Breakthrough RESEARCH is the United States Agency for International Development's flagship project for SBC research and evaluation. We support countries to improve health and development by equipping governments, implementing partners, service delivery organizations, and donors with the data and evidence they need to integrate proven and cost-effective social and behavior change approaches into their programs. Breakthrough RESEARCH is a consortium led by Population Council in partnership with Avenir Health, ideas42, Institute for Reproductive Health at Georgetown University, Population Reference Bureau, and Tulane University.

World Health Organization 2022 Family Planning/Contraception Stakeholder Survey

Ados May
 

Dear IBP Members and Stakeholders,

 

On behalf of the World Health Organization Contraception and Fertility Care Unit in the Department of Sexual and Reproductive Health and Research, we are pleased to invite you to participate in an online, anonymous Stakeholder Survey to guide and inform a revision of the MEC and SPR guidelines.   The survey is available in English, French, Spanish, Portuguese and Russian.   

 

We remain grateful for our continued collaboration to improve the lives of women, girls, men and boys worldwide.  

 

Thank you !

 

 

The World Health Organization’s (WHO) Medical eligibility criteria for contraceptive use guideline (MEC) offers evidence-based recommendations on the safety of different contraceptive methods for women, men and adolescent girls and boys with specific characteristics or known medical conditions. The Selected practice recommendations for contraceptive use (SPR) is a WHO guideline providing evidence-based recommendations on how to safely and effectively provide contraceptive methods, once medical eligibility has been established. Together, these documents are intended to be used by policy­makers, programme managers, and the scientific community, to support national programmes in the preparation of service delivery guidelines.

These guidelines are routinely updated to ensure recommendations remain up-to-date based upon available clinical and epidemiological evidence.  WHO solicits your feedback to inform the revision process for these guidelines, so that these documents remain relevant to family planning/contraception policies, programmes, and delivery of services. 

To this end, we have prepared an online survey to obtain global feedback on topics for consideration.  The survey is available in English, French, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish.  Responses are anonymous.  Please complete the survey yourself.  The survey can be completed in stages: you have the option of saving your responses and resuming the survey.  The survey will close on 31 March 2022.

We encourage you to share the survey links within your organization and amongst your networks or any other key informants.  We aim for global, multidisciplinary representation and robust input to support the guideline update process. 

There are 26 questions (12 questions are optional, depending upon whether you have comments or supporting documents to upload).  Any questions or comments about the survey can be directed to srhcfc@...

Danette Wilkins
 

 
The Interagency Gender Working Group promotes gender equity in order to improve global health and foster sustainable development.
Call for Submissions - Rethinking Men’s and Boys’ Healthcare Access and Use
 
 
Submit and Save the Date! 
The Interagency Gender Working Group’s Male Engagement Task Force (IGWG METF) is excited to host its next event on March 17th 2022, 9:00-10:30 AM Washington DC. This event will focus on men's and boys' help-seeking and healthcare access and use in health areas such as family planning and reproductive health (FP/RH), HIV/AIDS, maternal, newborn, and child health (MNCH), and infectious diseases (e.g., COVID-19, malaria, tuberculosis, immunization). Stay tuned for a formal invitation with a registration link.  
 

For this event, we are seeking presentation submissions that highlight ways that recent research or programming center men and boys as active and interested users and clients of health services across service delivery settings (e.g. facility, mobile, community, household, self-care) and health areas. We welcome submissions that consider questions such as: 
 
 
  • What are overlooked barriers to men’s and boys’ help-seeking and healthcare use and access? How can we overcome these barriers?
  • What are missed opportunities to encourage and support men’s and boys’ help-seeking and healthcare use and access? How can we identify and leverage these opportunities?
  • What are effective program approaches and strategies at different levels (e.g., facility, mobile, community, household, self-care)?
  • What gender and power dynamics were identified and addressed in the particular context? And how?
 
Please submit presentation ideas by completing this form by Monday, February 14. Only one presentation idea per submission. Multiple submissions are welcome. If selected, you will be notified and invited to participate in this event according to its final format (e.g., individual presentation, panel discussion, breakout rooms) by Wednesday, February 23
 
Please direct any questions to Danette Wilkins (she/they) at danette.wilkins@... and Courtney McLarnon-Silk (she/her) at cjm296@....

Want to know more about the IGWG METF?
The Male Engagement Task Force (METF) is an information, advocacy, and knowledge exchange network that examines what it means to engage men and boys in health promotion and gender equality. The METF aims to explore why we should engage men and boys, what are the benefits, how to do it, what works and doesn’t work, and what modalities of health services can better reach and include men and boys while addressing gender dynamics that act as barriers to health. Health areas of focus include family planning; sexual and reproductive health; maternal, newborn, child, and adolescent health; nutrition; HIV/AIDS; and prevention and treatment of infectious diseases such as malaria and tuberculosis. The METF considers relevant social and behavior change, service delivery, research, and policy efforts to improve outcomes across these health areas. For more information, click here.

The private sector holds great potential to reduce unmet need for family planning, and many countries are poised to adopt a total market approach for increasing contraceptive access through private pharmacies and drug shops. Policies supporting scale-up of family planning service provision and expanding method options such as DMPA-SC self-injection, must be prioritized in these entities.

The PATH-JSI DMPA-SC Access Collaborative and our partners have gained valuable insights with relevance to private sector engagement on self-injection. Through this virtual discussion, we aim to highlight lessons learnt, challenges, recommendations, and considerations for policies supporting private sector engagement in self-injection in different country contexts. Specific topics to be discussed include:

  • Financing and commodity production ecosystems
  • Procurement and supply chains
  • Service delivery and programming
  • Data reporting and monitoring
  • Advocacy
  • Demand generation

This discussion will be moderated by Allen Namagembe, Deputy Project Director, Uganda DMPA-SC Access Collaborative, PATH.

Panelists:

  • Dr. Kayode Afolabi, Director and Head, Reproductive Health Division, Federal Ministry of Health, Nigeria
  • Dr. Daniella Munene, Chief Executive Officer, Pharmaceutical Society of Kenya
  • Mr. Kennedy Saini, President, Pharmaceutical Society of Zambia
  • Dr. Hortense Randrianaivo, President, Association of Pharmacists of Madagascar
  • Mr. Célestin Compaore, Regional Project Director, DMPA-SC, Jhpiego, Burkina Faso

This event will be held in English and French with simultaneous interpretation provided. We look forward to having you join us virtually. Please register in advance below.

Cliquez ici pour votre fuseau horaire local

Le secteur privé a un grand potentiel pour réduire les besoins non satisfaits en matière de planification familiale, et de nombreux pays sont sur le point d’adopter une approche de marché totale pour accroître l’accès aux contraceptifs à travers des pharmacies et des drogueries privées. Les politiques soutenant la mise à l'échelle de la prestation de services de planification familiale et l’élargissement des options de méthodes telles que l’auto-injection DMPA-SC, doit être priorisé pour ces entités.

Le Collaboratif pour l’Accès au DMPA-SC de PATH-JSI et nos partenaires ont acquis des connaissances précieuses pertinentes pour l’engagement du secteur privé sur l’auto-injection. À travers cette discussion virtuelle, nous visons à mettre en évidence les leçons apprises, les principaux défis, les recommandations et les considérations relatives aux politiques soutenant l’engagement du secteur privé dans l’auto-injection dans différents contextes nationaux. La discussion se concentrera sur des thèmes pertinents y compris :

  • L’Écosystèmes de financement et de production de produits de base
  • L’Approvisionnement et chaînes d’approvisionnement
  • La prestation de services et programmation
  • Les rapports et surveillance des données
  • Le plaidoyer
  • Génération de la demande

Cette discussion sera modérée par Allen Namagembe, Directrice Adjoint du Collaboratif pour l’Accès au DMPA-SC en Ouganda, PATH.

Panélistes :

  • Dr Kayode Afolabi, Directeur et Chef, Division de la Santé Reproductive, Ministère Fédéral de la Santé, Nigéria
  • Dr. Daniella Munene, Directrice Générale, Société Pharmaceutique du Kenya
  • M. Kennedy Saini, Président, Société Pharmaceutique de Zambie

INSIDE THE FP STORY PODCAST

 

 

Episode Four:

Providing Adolescent-Responsive

Contraceptive Services

 

 

In the fourth episode of Inside the FP Story, we'll continue our focus on young people—but this time, we focus on service delivery. Listen in to hear how: 

  • In Kenya, the Ministry of Health, in partnership with the UCLA School of Public Health, created the "After Hours Adolescent Project," (AHAP) a program that extends clinic hours and provides comprehensive sexuality education for young people
  • In Mexico, The Mexican Foundation of Family Planning (MexFam) trains pharmacists on improving access to contraceptives among adolescents. 
  • In Zimbabwe, the Ministry of Health and Child Care created the “Stop the Bus” model, where trained staff travel around rural communities to provide HIV, voluntary family planning, and reproductive health services to young women

We'll explore how healthcare settings respond to the specific needs of adolescents and youth, and ensure that they have access to FP/RH health care that meets their unique needs.

Longitudinal and Cross-Sectional FP and MNH Data Available

Laura Wells
 

Hello All,

 

Performance Monitoring for Action (PMA) is a family planning survey project, with direction and support provided by the Bill & Melinda Gates Institute for Population and Reproductive Health at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, and Jhpiego,  in collaboration with national partners in each project country. PMA surveys collect actionable data on a variety of family planning topics that inform policies at national and sub-national levels in Africa and Asia. The project implements longitudinal surveys and a new cross - sectional panel design to fill a data gap — collecting information from the same women and households over time for regular tracking of progress and for understanding the drivers of contraceptive use dynamics – an approach that is not currently used by other large - scale surveys.

 

PMA Ethiopia is a separate project that is designed to generate data on a variety of reproductive, maternal, and newborn health (RMNH) indicators that can inform national and regional governments. The project focuses on measuring RMNH comprehensiveness of care services, and the barriers and facilitators to such care.

 

We have survey results on a variety of family planning, MNH and COVID-19 topics (including the profound effect Covid has had on household income and food security).

 

Check out our website for more information and results, and build your own customized charts using our DataLab tool!

 

I’m happy to answer any questions you may have!

Subject: Join us February 3 for The Silent Burden; Rejoignez-nous le 3 février pour Le Fardeau Silencieux


The Silent Burden: Maternal Mental Health and the Importance of Engaging Faith Actors 
February 3 at 8:00 to 9:00 am EST / 1:00 to 2:00 pm GMT
Un fardeau silencieux : la santé mentale des mères et l'importance de l’implication des acteurs religieux
Le 3 Février de 8h00 à 9h00 EST / 13h00 à 14h00 GMT
L'interprétation en français sera disponible.
Mental health lacks proper attention in the health sector, both in funding and response, despite its high prevalence rate. The perinatal period is a particularly crucial time to address mental health concerns as it is associated with an elevated risk of mental disorders.

In low- and middle-income countries (LMIC), faith leaders have a strong influence on behavior and faith-based organizations (FBOs) provide a notable share of healthcare services. At the same time, stigma and harmful traditional practices sometimes masquerade as faith-related and may be perpetuated by religious leaders and faith communities. With 84% of the world’s population affiliated with a religion, engaging faith communities in addressing mental health issues, including maternal mental health (MMH), is crucial.

Join us February 3rd to learn about results from a landscape assessment of faith actors and FBO involvement in maternal mental health. We'll also continue the discussion from the global technical consultation on MMH held in September 2021. Faith actors and FBOs can make a difference in countries and on the global stage in vastly improving maternal mental health.

CCIH is proud to be a partner on USAID's MOMENTUM Country and Global Leadership and will be participating in this webinar.

Interpretation into French will be available; please share with your networks.

We will hear from 

  • Karen Hoehn, MPM, Director, International Development, Bonstar
  • Suzanne Stalls, MA, CNM, FACNM, Director, Maternal and Newborn Health, MOMENTUM Country and Global Leadership

The discussion will be moderated by Allison Flynn, MPH, Senior Health and Nutrition Program Advisor, World Relief.
La santé mentale ne fait pas l'objet d'une attention appropriée dans le secteur de la santé, à la fois en termes de financement et d’action, malgré son taux de prévalence élevé. La période périnatale est une période particulièrement cruciale pour aborder les problèmes de santé mentale car elle est associée à un risque élevé de troubles mentaux.

Dans les pays à revenu faible et intermédiaire (PRFI), les chefs religieux ont une forte influence sur le comportement et les organisations confessionnelles (OC) fournissent une part notable des services de santé. En même temps, la stigmatisation et les pratiques traditionnelles néfastes se font parfois passer pour des pratiques religieuses et peuvent être perpétuées par les chefs religieux et les communautés religieuses. Avec 84 % de la population mondiale affiliée à une religion, il est crucial d'impliquer les communautés religieuses dans la résolution des problèmes de santé mentale, y compris la santé mentale maternelle (MMH).

Rejoignez-nous le 3 février pour en savoir plus sur les résultats de l’évaluation du paysage des acteurs religieux et de l'implication des organisations confessionnelles dans la santé mentale maternelle. Nous poursuivrons également la discussion sur la consultation technique mondiale concernant la MMH qui s'est tenue en septembre 2021. Les acteurs religieux et les organisations confessionnelles peuvent faire la différence dans les pays et sur la scène mondiale en améliorant considérablement la santé mentale maternelle.

Le CCIH est fier d'être partenaire de MOMENTUM Country and Global Leadership de l'USAID et participera à ce webinaire.

INTERVENANTS:

  • Karen Hoehn, Maîtrise en gestion de projet, Directrice, Développement international, Bonstar
  • Suzanne Stalls, Master, infirmière sage-femme certifiée, boursière de l'American College of Nurse-Midwives FACNM, Directrice, Santé maternelle et néonatale, MOMENTUM Country and Global Leadership

La discussion sera animée par Allison Flynn, Master en santé publique, conseillère principale en programmes de santé et de nutrition, World Relief.

INSIDE THE FP STORY PODCAST

 

 

Episode Three:

Ensuring essential FP information for

diverse groups of adolescents

 

 

In this third episode of Inside the FP Story, we'll discuss elements of successful programs that can be replicated in other settings to improve access to contraception among young people. Listen in to hear how:

  • In Benin, The Social Marketing Association, in partnership with USAID and Population Services International, started a “Craft Academy” that teaches girls about contraception as they create beaded jewelry
  • In Ecuador, Fundacion Octaedro implemented a peer-to-peer program supporting young influencers while integrating family planning, domestic violence prevention, gender and youth empowerment activities
  • In Colombia, Profamilia created a comprehensive program to promote the autonomy of people with disabilities 

We examine specific actions that programs can take to involve communities and meet family planning needs— and what elements of these integrated programs can be replicated in other settings.

WHO Open Call for SRH service delivery adaptations during COVID-19

TAMRAT, Tigest
 

Dear colleagues,

 

Are you involved in the provision of sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services? 

Did you make any change or adaptation to ensure continuous delivery of sexual and reproductive health services during COVID-19?  

 

The WHO/HRP Special Programme is organizing an open call and needs your feedback on innovations and adaptations implemented for sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services during the COVID-19 pandemic. The COVID-19 pandemic caused major disruptions to healthcare services, including sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services, which has led to the implementation of changes and adaptations to maintain SRH services.  

 

The purpose of this open call is to solicit and document innovations and modifications that have been used for the delivery of SRH services during the COVID-19 pandemic. We define innovation here as new or improved health policies, systems, products and technologies, and services and delivery methods that improve people’s health. 

 

The deadline for submissions is 28th February 2022 and more information is available here. Please send any enquiries to SRH_innovations@... 

 

Sincerely,

Tigest, with collaborators Eneyi Kpokiri (LSTHM) and Megan Srinivas (UNC)

New resource: Tutorat: A Comprehensive Approach to Empowering Health Care Providers and Their Facilities in Senegal

Katelyn Bryant-Comstock
 

Dear colleagues,

 

I’m pleased to share a new resource from the USAID-funded Neema project: Tutorat: A Comprehensive Approach to Empowering Health Care Providers and Their Facilities in Senegal.

 

This brief details the Tutorat approach, which emphasizes capacity building of health service providers within their health centers by trained peers through intensive on-site, on-the-job, tailored mentorship over the period of several months. Providers participating in this approach had impressive gains in the reproductive health modules: Management of pregnancy, delivery, and post-partum and Family planning.

 

Please share widely with your networks!

 

Thanks,

Katelyn

📣 Webinar Jan 27 | DMPA-SC integration in preservice training: Lessons from Uganda

DMPA-SC Access Collaborative Learning and Action Network

DMPA-SC integration in preservice training: Lessons from Uganda

Thursday, January 27, 2022

9:30–11:00 EST | 14:30–16:00 GMT | 17:30–19:00 EAT

Updating family planning and reproductive health preservice training is an important approach to make an impact on the health workforce and foster successful programs. In 2021, the DMPA-SC Access Collaborative, in collaboration with Uganda’s Ministry of Health and Ministry of Education and Sports, conducted a regional training for clinical and health training institutions on the topic of DMPA-SC including self-injection. This training aimed to integrate DMPA-SC content into the health provider preservice curriculum, train tutors, and advance national scale-up of self-injection. As a result, 92 Ugandan health training institutions included self-injection content in their preservice curriculum for nurses, midwives, and clinical officers, and 190 tutors were trained—which will help ensure training of many more providers in the future.

During this process, the Access Collaborative gained valuable insights with relevance to other country contexts. Through this virtual discussion, we aim to highlight lessons learnt, challenges, recommendations, and considerations for the inclusion of self-injection content in provider preservice training. In the Ugandan context, these include:

  • How inclusion of self-injection in preservice training can help reach FP2030 country commitments.
  • Virtual preservice training approaches during the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Costs for the inclusion of self-injection in preservice training.
  • The role of regulators and the Ministry of Health in ensuring availability of DMPA-SC for preservice training.

This discussion will be moderated by Andrew Wabwire, Project Coordinator, Uganda Access Collaborative, PATH.

Panelists:

  • George Barigye, Regional Technical Advisor, DMPA-SC Access Collaborative, PATH
  • Fiona Walugembe, Project Director, Uganda DMPA-SC Access Collaborative, PATH
  • Allen Namagembe, Deputy Project Director, Uganda DMPA-SC Access Collaborative, PATH
  • Dr. Safinah Museene, Commissioner, Health Education and Training, Uganda Ministry of Education and Sports
  • Dr. Robert Mutumba, Principal Medical Officer, Uganda Ministry of Health

This event will be held in English.

We look forward to having you join us virtually. Please register in advance below.
