Subject: [IBPnetwork] COVID-19 Vaccination for vulnerable groups

 

Hello IBP community,

 

 

I am trying to find information regarding COVID-19 vaccination and vulnerable groups - specifically: 

 

How do we know that we are successfully targeting our high risk groups in the initial roll-out of vaccination programs?

 

Does anyone have any information on systems used in their jurisdiction, either by State/Territory/Province or Country-wide that enable disaggregation of data for monitoring and analysis? 

 

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?

 

 

Many thanks for your assistance

Jill

WHO statement on levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine device nomenclature

Nandita Thatte
 

Dear IBP Colleagues

 

Please see the statement below from WHO regarding nomenclature for levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine devices.

 

 

WHO statement on levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine device nomenclature

 

Several acronyms are in use to describe the levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine device, a widely used long-term reversible contraceptive (LARC) method. These acronyms include ‘LNG-IUD’, ‘Hormonal-IUD’, and ‘LNG-IUS’. The purpose of this document is to align these various terminologies in their use so countries are consistent when developing Health Management Information Systems (HMIS), ministry of health policy and programmatic documentation, training guidelines, and other family planning documents at all levels of service provision.

It is important to select and align a single term. Consistency in contraceptive nomenclature supports country-level efforts to introduce different methods and help ensure adequate supplies. 

 

The details to the document are in the links provided below:

The publication is now online in IRIS at: https://apps.who.int/iris/bitstream/handle/10665/340378/9789240021730-eng.pdf

Updated - HIP Adolescent-Responsive Contraceptive Services

Ados May
 

 

 

Updated - HIP Adolescent-Responsive Contraceptive Services

 

There is evidence that adolescent-friendly services, when well-designed and well-implemented, can help increase access to and use of contraception. However, traditional models of specialized service delivery for adolescents have proven difficult to sustain and scale.  Establishing adolescent-responsive contraceptive services (ARCS) is emerging as a more scalable and sustainable way to meet adolescents’ needs for contraceptive information and services.  The term adolescent-responsive contraceptive services (ARCS) signals an evolution from traditional stand-alone models of adolescent-friendly services towards a systems approach to making existing contraceptive services adolescent-responsive by incorporating elements with demonstrated effectiveness for increasing adolescent contraceptive use. A systems approach implies that policies, procedures, and programs across the entire health system are adapted to respond to the diverse needs and preferences of adolescents.

 

Adolescent-Responsive Contraceptive Services (ARCS) has been identified as a HIPs Enhancement—a practice that is not typically a standalone intervention, but rather implemented in conjunction with HIPs to further intensify the impact of the HIPs. Examples of  how HIPs can be enhanced through the inclusion of adolescent-responsive elements include offering contraceptive information and methods to adolescent mothers during routine child immunizations (Family planning and immunization integration), vouchers for free services to offset financial barriers for youth and adolescents and targeted demand generation (Social franchising), and community health workers trained to counsel and refer married adolescents for contraception during household visits (Community health workers).

 

Download the HIP Adolescent-Responsive Contraceptive Services brief and visit www.fphighimpactpractices.org to learn more about High Impact Practices in Family Planning.

 

 

Key Points: Adolescent-Responsive Contraceptive Services

 

  • Evidence shows that current approaches for adolescent contraceptive services are either ineffective at increasing contraceptive use (e.g., youth centers) demonstrate mixed effects (peer education) or are challenging to sustain and bring to scale (separate spaces for young people within health facilities) and contribute to poor sexual and reproductive health outcomes.
  • Establishing adolescent-responsive contraceptive services (ARCS) is emerging as a more scalable and sustainable way to meet adolescents’ needs for contraceptive information and services.  
  • Adolescent-responsive contraceptive services means applying a systems approach to make existing contraceptive services responsive to the needs and preferences of adolescents, i.e., incorporating evidence-based elements throughout all components of the health system, rather than implementing isolated interventions.
  • A systems-approach to adolescent-responsive contraceptive services is necessary to address the multiple barriers to adolescent’s access and use of contraceptive services: laws and policies; gender and social norms; misconceptions and lack of knowledge; financial barriers; lack of privacy and confidentiality; and provider bias.
  • Lessons from Chile, Ethiopia, and Uruguay show that when an adolescent-responsive leans is intentionally and systematically applied across the health system, the resulting system is stronger and is better able to sustain quality services at scale.
  • Implementation tips include: ensure an enabling policy and legal environment for contraceptive provision to adolescents; employ a variety of sectors and channels to reach different adolescent segments for service delivery; and improve providers’ competency in providing adolescent-responsive contraceptive services.

Reproductive Choice for All: Virtual Event, 31 March 10hEST/15hBST

Nandita Thatte
 

Dear IBP Colleagues,

 

Please see the event below on behalf of MSI Reproductive Choices.

 

Register HERE

 

 

Join us for the next virtual event in our Spotlight series, on Wednesday 31st March 10:00-11:00am EST / 15:00-16:00 BST:

Reproductive Choice for All: How can we partner to leave no one behind?

Reproductive choice can be life changing, but for communities often marginalised from healthcare, reproductive choice - and the opportunities that choice brings - can remain out of reach. With COVID-19 widening inequalities, it is more important than ever that we partner to protect progress made across reproductive healthcare and rights and ensure equitable access for those often side-lined.

Join MSI Reproductive Choices alongside speakers from the Ministry of Health Sierra Leone, the UK’s Foreign Commonwealth & Development Office, International Rescue Committee, and the Zambia Disability HIV/AIDS Programme (ZAMDHARP) to discuss the challenges and opportunities of the next decade for women and girls. Register here.

From empowering adolescents to access reproductive choice, to providing bodily autonomy to people in humanitarian crises, and taking a “nothing about us without us” approach to inclusive programming through WISH, together we can ensure that no one, whoever they are or wherever they live, is left behind.

The event will mark the launch of MSI’s Reproductive Choice for All report, sharing new evidence on how we can deliver services that leave no one behind. The session will include short presentations followed by a panel discussion with a live audience Q&A, where interventions and questions from participants will be welcome.

All Spotlight webinars are recorded and shared via the Spotlight blog and all registrants will receive a copy of the recording via email.

Research dissemination webinar: Universal home visits empower households to protect maternal and child health.

Ermel Johnson
 

Save the date: 25 March 2021, from 2:30 pm to 4:00 pm GMT

 

Research dissemination webinar on: “Universal home visits empower households to protect maternal and child health.”

 

Webinar description

 

Women and children in Nigeria continue to face high risks of illness and death. A five-year project in Bauchi State, Northern Nigeria, implemented universal home visits to pregnant women and their spouses and measured the impact on maternal and child health outcomes. The visits were different in several key ways: they were universal, covering all households in participating wards; they shared evidence about risk factors that households could act on themselves; and they involved men (male visitors visited the spouses of the visited pregnant women). The cluster randomised controlled trial compared outcomes between visited and non-visited wards.


Webinar speakers and short videos will present findings and implications of the project. The visits led to improve maternal and child health outcomes, and improved attitudes and actions among men. The households also reduced risk factors like heavy work in pregnancy, domestic violence, and lack of spousal communication. All this happened without increased use of health facilities. This has important implications for other areas with high maternal and child mortality and limited access to quality services from health facilities. The Bauchi State government has committed to rollout the home visits across the State, as funding allows.


The Bauchi State Primary Health Care Development Agency collaborated with Federation of Muslim Women of Nigeria (FOMWAN, Bauchi State Chapter), a Nigerian NGO, and CIET in McGill University, Canada, to carry out this work. The research is part of the Innovating for Maternal and Child Health in Africa (IMCHA) initiative, jointly funded by Global Affairs Canada, the Canadian Institutes of Health Research and the International Development Research Centre. This webinar is co-organised with the West Africa Health Organisation, providing support to IMCHA research teams in the region for knowledge translation and uptake by decision makers.

 

The webinar will be available in ENGLISH, FRENCH and PORTUGUESE

The DMPA-SC Access Collaborative invites you to

 

Making Self-Injection Count

A workshop on family planning data availability and use

 

March 22–25, approximately 5 hours daily

Data has the power to convey the lived experiences of women and adolescents, highlighting the importance and potential of expanding choices to reduce unmet need for contraception. Self-injection data is often missing in routine family planning measurement and evaluation. Programs need an accurate measure of uptake of new options and self-care approaches to better understand the needs of women and adolescents, help ensure a contraceptive method mix and quality of care, and influence policy and procurement planning across development and humanitarian settings.

The PATH-JSI DMPA-SC Access Collaborative is hosting this workshop to prioritize the use of routine family planning data in policy and programming. We will spotlight DMPA-SC self-injection in order to catalyze discussion, learning, and country action—not only for this contraceptive option, but for broader family planning and self-care initiatives.

Who should attend

This workshop is intended for family planning program managers and individuals actively involved in self-injection introduction and scale-up, with specific sessions for those responsible for monitoring, learning, and evaluation in family planning programs.

Simultaneous English-French interpretation will be available throughout the meeting.

Please register in advance at www.path.org/SIdata. Feel free to contact FPoptions@... with questions.


 

Le collaboratif pour l'accès au DMPA-SC vous invite

 

Faire compter l'auto-injection

Un atelier sur la disponibilité et l'utilisation des données de planification familiale

 

Cet atelier aura lieu du 22 au 25 mars pendant environ 5 heures par jour

Les données ont le pouvoir de transmettre l’expérience vécue des femmes et des adolescentes, en mettant l’accent sur l’importance et le potentiel de choix plus larges pour réduire le besoin non satisfait de contraception. Les données relatives à l’auto-injection sont souvent absentes des mesures et évaluations ordinaires de la planification familiale. Les programmes doivent disposer d'une mesure précise de l’adoption des nouvelles options proposées et des approches d’auto-soins pour mieux comprendre les besoins des femmes et des adolescentes, contribuer à l’offre d'un éventail de méthodes contraceptives et à la qualité des soins, et influencer la politique et la planification des approvisionnements dans tous les contextes de développement et humanitaires.

Le Collaboratif pour l’accès au DMPA-SC de PATH-JSI organise cette rencontre virtuelle pour veiller à la priorité de l'utilisation des données de planification familiale ordinaires dans l’établissement des politiques et la programmation. Nous allons mettre l’accent sur l’auto-injection du DMPA-SC pour engager la discussion, l’apprentissage et l’action des pays — au profit non seulement de cette option contraceptive, mais de plus larges initiatives de planification familiale et d’auto-soins.  

À qui s’adresse l’atelier

Cet atelier s’adresse aux gestionnaires de programme de planification familiale et aux personnes qui participent activement à l’introduction et au passage à l’échelle de l’auto-injection. Quelques sessions s’adresseront spécifiquement aux représentants des programmes de planification familiale responsables du suivi, de l’apprentissage et de l'évaluation dans les programmes de planification familiale. 

Des services d'interprétation simultanée anglais-français seront disponibles tout au long de la réunion.

Veuillez-vous inscrire à l'avance à : www.path.org/SIdata. Merci d’adresser toutes questions par E-mail à FPoptions@....

Share-Net International Community of Practice on COVID-19, SRHR and Gender Equality: Small grants dissemination meetings

Hadir Barbar <barbarhadir@...>
 

Link to post: https://share-net.nl/international-community-of-practice-on-covid-19-srhr-and-gender-equality-small-grants-dissemination-meetings/


Share-Net International kindly invites you to two small grants dissemination meetings spotlighting the recent work by the international community of practice (iCoP) working on COVID-19, SRHR and Gender Equality.

Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus, we have seen how the pandemic has pressured healthcare systems, led to a global economic shutdown, and changed our daily lives. Similarly, the impact of the COVID-19 on SRHR and gender equality issues and the need to include a gender lens to the outbreak response have become more clear.

To respond to the impacts of the COVID-19 outbreak on SRHR and gender equality and ensure the inclusion of a gender perspective in response and recovery planning, Share-Net International set up an iCoP on COVID-19, SRHR and Gender Equality in April 2020. The iCoP enabled collaboration between Share-Net members from all country hubs, as well as international members. Organised in thematic subgroups, the iCoP members have developed and implemented their small grant projects over the last couple of months.

The aim of this mini-series of online dissemination meetings is to

  • present and discuss new knowledge around COVID-19, SRHR and gender equality and
  • stimulate critical discussions around research methodologies and ethics in times of a pandemic.

Registration

Please RSVP to the two event-series parts

PRIORITY AREAS FOR ADOLESCENT HEALTH MEASUREMENT

Carolin Ekman
 

Adolescents are key to sustainable development, and several global initiatives call for greater investment in their health. Consequently, to track return of these investments, there has been a rapid proliferation of measurement efforts. However, these efforts have been poorly coordinated, resulting in duplication in some areas and persistent measurement gaps in others, along with the inconsistent definition, use and reporting of indicators, limiting comparability, and use of the data.

To address these issues and improve alignment and capacity for adolescent health measurement in countries, the World Health Organization (WHO) in collaboration with UN partners established the Global Action for Measurement of Adolescent Health (GAMA) Advisory Group.

 

In this article, recently published in the Journal of Adolescent Health, GAMA proposes areas of ADH measurement to prioritise in national and global ADH measurement – including core areas for measurement of all adolescents aged 10-19 years globally, as well as expanded and context-specific areas that may only be relevant in specific regions, income groups, or adolescent population subgroups. Based on input from youth representatives, countries, disease burden and existing measurement efforts, 99 measurement areas were identified.

Considering all four inputs, a group of global experts identified 33 core, 19 expanded, and 6 context-specific adolescent health measurement areas, including:

  • sexual health,
  • reproductive health,
  • child marriage,
  • social and cultural norms,
  • contraception,
  • sexual violence,
  • GBV,
  • social media behaviour,
  • poverty,
  • areas related to mental health and well-being,
  • as well as policies, programmes and laws.

 

For a full overview of all proposed measurement areas, and to learn more about the work of GAMA, read the full article in the attached file.
