    Niger flipchart that promote barrier measures and equitable COVID vaccination

    These flip charts were designed as part of the COVID-19 project in collaboration with the Directorate of Surveillance and Response to Epidemics, of the Ministry of Public Health, Population and Social Affairs of Niger.

    They constitute a collection of messages for the promotion of barrier measures and to promote equitable vaccination against COVID-19. They are intended to serve as a reminder to community relays for community awareness (door-to-door visit, small group discussion, etc.) on COVID-19.

          Confiance Totale PSAs

          In 2020, Breakthrough ACTION created the Confiance Totale brand and logo to generate trust in and demand for FP methods and services among women of reproductive age in ILN catchment areas.

          Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, WABA developed several Confiance Totale materials in collaboration with service delivery partner Amplify-FP and Ministries of Health. The campaign materials include IUD, injectable, oral contraceptive pill, implant, Standard Days, emergency contraception, and all-methods leaflets and two radio public service announcements (PSAs) in French and local languages that promote having confidence in the safety and efficacy of FP and in health centers and healthcare providers.

          Anticipating limited FP service and method access during COVID-19 shelter-in-place orders, and subsequent potential complications tied to unplanned pregnancies and overcrowded and under-stocked health facilities, the WABA team pivoted its Confiance Totale mass media activities at the end of Q2 by drafting scripts for new radio spots. The new PSAs feature adapted calls to action, including:

          • Using this time at home together to discuss birth spacing with your partner
          • Continuing to use FP successfully without going to the health center by using call-in numbers
          • Ensuring you have FP method supplies while sheltering in place and/or during government restrictions on movement to avoid an unwanted pregnancy
          • Using exclusive breastfeeding to avoid unwanted pregnancy (for new moms)
          • Discussing postpartum family planning before going into labor
          • Using a mask and other COVID-19 risk reduction behaviors when going to the health center or pharmacy for FP methods
