Dear Friends of Nivi,

We are excited to announce the “Chat for Change Challenge”, a $400,000 competition in which four lucky organizations will win marketing credits and a 12-month subscription to the askNivi platform and Nivi Insights, our dashboard for analyzing user feedback, thanks to funding from USAID (credits and subscription together worth $100,000!). Organizations are invited to apply to use askNivi to solve some of the world’s most indelible problems. Beginning on April 19th, the “Chat for Change Challenge” will begin accepting applications from organizations that offer health information, products, or services for sexual and reproductive health, maternal health, or immunizations. Our goal is to increase reach and aid individuals to make healthier, better informed decisions about their personal wellbeing and to increase organizational impact by engaging their target audience digitally. Nivi has always been about getting information and resources to as many people as possible so that people can be empowered to achieve better health outcomes. With this challenge, we hope to help organizations expand their reach and impact in India, Kenya, or Nigeria.

For more information on how and when to apply, see below.

  • April 19: Application Period Begins

  • April 22: Virtual Q&A Session (8:00 AM EDT, 3:00 PM Kenya, 5:30 PM India)

  • April 27: Virtual Q&A Session (10:30 AM EDT, 5:30 PM Kenya, 8:00 PM India)

  • May 7: Deadline for Submissions

  • May 17-21: Finalists Present Pitches to Nivi

  • May 26: Winners Announced

  • June 21-July 2: Rolling Launch

We have partnered with SFH on the IntegratE Project to increase access to family planning methods through collaboration with CPs and PPMVs in Nigeria. The project started in 2017 and in the last 3 months, Nivi has increased the messaging reach of the project by 17 times over! The use of askNivi has made this information more available and accessible, increasing from 195,000 people in the 3 previous years to reaching in just 3 months over 3 million people with family planning calls to action. We are excited to contribute to this partnership to further build trust in the Nigeria health system, educate about the services and resources available, and empower people to take up and continue their contraceptive method of choice. 

Growing the Family Planning Market by Asking Consumers What They Want

Learn how changing our model to giving more users access to information and asking them if they want to engage with it lead to a 204% increase in referral to family planning method services and products.

Message from the director

 

 

Dr Ian Askew, Director, WHO Department of Sexual and Reproductive Health and Research including UNDP-UNFPA-UNICEF-WHO-World Bank Special Programme of Research, Development and Research Training in Human Reproduction (HRP).

 

The unequal impact of COVID-19 across and within countries, social and economic groups is a daily reminder of what it truly means to build a fairer, healthier and greener world for all. HRP welcomes the WHO commitment to health equity at the heart of pandemic response and recovery. We are committed, in turn, to ensuring that no one’s right to sexual and reproductive health is left unclaimed.

Our new publication, Sexual and reproductive health interventions in the WHO Universal Health Coverage (UHC) Compendium, is a practical companion tool to WHO’s powerful UHC Compendium for assisting countries in prioritization and planning processes for determining benefit packages of health services for UHC. It collates all SRH-related interventions in the UHC Compendium as well as providing useful navigation tips for the Compendium website. Read more

Research report by Rutgers: Young People's SRHR & COVID-19

Saskia Husken
 

Dear IBP colleagues,

 

This week Rutgers launched our new research report:

‘I feel that things are out of my hands - How COVID-19 prevention measures have affected young people’s sexual and reproductive health in Ghana, Indonesia, Kenya, Nepal, Uganda and Zimbabwe’

This international study amongst almost 3,000 young people across four African and two Asian countries shows that COVID-19 has had a huge impact on young people’s lives and that all negative impacts are interlinked, and we found that existing inequalities are laid bare and exacerbated by the pandemic.

 

Highlights from the research are also being shared across our social media platforms: LinkedinInstagram | Facebook | Tweet EN

 

 

Best regards,

Saskia.

Wednesday, April 21

9:30–11:00 AM EST | 1:30–3:00 PM GMT | 4:30–6:00 PM EAT. Click here for your local time zone.

 

Next Wednesday, April 21, the PATH-JSI DMPA-SC Access Collaborative is hosting a virtual discussion highlighting lessons learned through the past four years of data-driven technical assistance and coordination to ensure that women have increased access to self-injection as a contraceptive option, delivered through informed choice programming.

 

The discussion will focus on key topics for the introduction and scale-up of self-injection—and self-care interventions more broadly— at the country level including:

 

  • Policy and advocacy for new product introduction.
  • How to coordinate scale-up of a new product.
  • Using data to inform program introduction and scale-up.
  • Effective innovations and adaptations in provider training.

 

Participants will have the opportunity to pose questions and share their country experiences. English-French simultaneous interpretation will be available.

 

This discussion will be moderated by Monica Mutesa, Zambia Country Coordinator, DMPA-SC Access Collaborative, PATH. Speakers include:

 

  • Caitlin Corneliess, Project Director, DMPA-SC Access Collaborative, PATH

La discussion se concentrera sur des thèmes pertinents à l'introduction et la mise à l'échelle de l'auto-injection du DMPA-SC - et plus globalement les interventions d'auto-soins - au niveau national, notamment :

 

  • le changement de politique et le plaidoyer pour l'introduction de nouveaux produits.
  • la coordination de la mise à l'échelle d'un nouveau produit contraceptif.
  • l’utilisation des données pour informer l'introduction et la mise à l'échelle d’un programme.
  • les innovations et adaptations efficaces dans la formation des prestataires.

 

Les participants auront l'occasion de poser des questions et de partager leurs expériences au niveau de leurs pays. Des services d'interprétation simultanée anglais-français seront disponibles.

Research dissemination webinar: Empowering frontline maternal health workers for better mental health outcomes for adolescent and adult mothers.

Ermel Johnson
 

Dear all,

Save the date: 22 April 2021 from 3:30 to 4:00 pm GMT

Research dissemination webinar on: Empowering frontline maternal health workers for better mental health outcomes for adolescent and adult mothers

Webinar Description

Depression is quite common in women in the perinatal period. However, maternal and child healthcare services often do not make any provision to meet the mental health needs of women in the perinatal period. Frontline primary health care providers can deliver effective treatment for perinatal depression but what is required for successful integration of maternal mental health care to routine perinatal care is yet to be determined. In a series of studies, the Ibadan Research Team on the Innovating for Maternal and Child Health in Africa explored what is needed to empower frontline primary health-care workers in Oyo State to scale up care for perinatal depression through improved identification and provision of evidence-based treatment to both adult and adolescent mothers.

The webinar is available in ENGLISH, FRENCH and PORTUGUESE

Opportunities at FP2030

Ados May
 

Dear colleagues,

 

Our FP2030 colleagues have recently put out two announcements regarding their ongoing transition and we wanted to make sure members have seen them. Please contact FP2030 if you have any questions.

 

First, FP2030 is seeking organizations to host its Regional Hubs that will help fulfill FP2030's vision. Each Regional Hub will house a localized support team for the FP2030 partnership and serve prioritized needs of commitment-making partners and countries in that geographic region. In this first phase, calls for expressions of interest for the two Africa-based regional Hubs, one for North, Central and West Africa and one for East and Southern Africa, have been issued and can be accessed here: http://familyplanning2020.org/Building2030-Opportunities The deadline for applications is April 30, 2021.

Re: COVID-19 Vaccination for vulnerable groups

Marta Royo
 

Dear Jill, here some information from Colombia: 

1. Covid - 19 vaccines in Colombia are being assigned according to the risk a particular group can face, so the process started with people 80 years and older, and doctors and nurses who are directly in charge of treating Covid. 

2. Two weeks ago people 70 years old and the rest of the health professionals started getting vaccines. 

3. No real distinction has been made regarding specific vulnerable groups except in the case of the Amazon department, where due to the proximity with the Brazlian border and the risk of the new Covid-19 strain a considerable effort was made in order to vaccinate most of the population which consists mainly of indigenous communities (60% were vaccinate). 

4. There are several indigenous communities that are expressing their unwillingness to get vaccinated, the arguments being that they have natural treatments, and different beliefs that keeps them from wanting to be vaccinated. 

5. Regarding migrants, the government passed a law Temporary Protection Statute for Venezuelan Migrants through which they expect to be able to vaccinate them. 

6. When the vaccines started arriving in the country, a group of parents of children with Down Syndrome advocated in order to have their sons and daughters prioritize, without success.   

7. Mi Vacuna https://mivacuna.sispro.gov.co/MiVacuna/ shows the user's information and the group to which they belong within the stipulations of the National Vaccination Plan against covid-19.

8.  You can have the official information about the National Vaccination Program here: https://www.minsalud.gov.co/salud/publica/Vacunacion/Paginas/Vacunacion-covid-19.aspx

9. In a week we can have around three to four normative changes coming from the Ministry of Health, so the conditions and instructions change quite a lot and in different ways. 

Hope this information is of help. 

Warm regards,
Marta

And in places that don't have data collection systems that allow disaggregation, what methods are you using (or have you used) to capture this information?

Re: COVID-19 Vaccination for vulnerable groups

Ann Pederson
 

Many jurisdictions have identified some form of vulnerable groupings as part of the planned vaccine rollout. Here in British Columbia, we followed a UK approach to identifying clinically extremely vulnerable (as opposed to vulnerability based on social determinants of health) population groups. These people were identified as having greater risk due to some health condition that compromised their ability to manage COVID-19 infection. Mechanisms, such as patient registries, databases, etc. were used to communicate with such patients to advise them that they are eligible for vaccination prior to the time for their designated age-based group. This has been rolling out over the past couple of weeks but took about six weeks to implement. If you want to know how they are being followed, I can find out who can offer that additional information.

 

Hope this is of assistance.

 

Sincerely, Ann
