As health care systems are stretched to capacity dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic, many of us are worried that delivery of essential health services—including family planning—is being severely compromised. On the supply side, we may be able to monitor availability of family counselors and contraceptives to meet needs. But what of the demand side? How can we monitor shifts in women’s family planning needs and preferences in light of the social and economic shocks they are facing due to the pandemic?
This article provides insights from the COVID-19 Youth Task Force on sustaining access to voluntary contraception and reproductive health information and care by youth in East Africa during the pandemic. Youth and adolescents need special consideration—while they are sometimes neglected, they increasingly make up a bulk of the population. This article articulates the important role of decision makers and technical advisors in enhancing access to voluntary reproductive health care by youth during COVID-19.
This interactive collection from Knowledge SUCCESS synthesizes the major COVID-19 global guidelines and guidance documents into 14 concrete actions that programs can take today to ensure continued voluntary family planning and reproductive health care. Each action links to related resources to help you get started. Features resources from WHO, Breakthrough ACTION, FIGO, HIPs, RHSC, AFP, and others.
This document includes important considerations and resources to support country programs in creating a functional rumor management system, enabling two-way communication with affected communities. It also includes guidance on obtaining feedback from communities on their beliefs (including rumors, misinformation, and disinformation), disseminating accurate information, and monitoring these approaches. Implementing this system while maintaining physical distancing is particularly important during the COVID-19 pandemic.
This Technical Brief looks at how social inequalities influence people’s experiences with and needs during COVID-19. It offers recommendations on how to integrate the needs of socially marginalized groups into the COVID-19 response.
This technical brief is intended to serve as guidance for systematically administering Short Message Service (SMS) and Interactive Voice Response (IVR)-based surveys to collect data1 from a stratified sample of participants. The brief includes a number of reference documents and resource people to contact for additional information.
This document is not intended to guide push or blast messaging, or opt-in texting to a short code. It is important to distinguish between SMS and IVR efforts that push or disseminate information or educational messages or collect data from opt-in self-selecting samples.
This short guide includes important considerations, messages, and resources to support country programs in adapting their FP/RH-focused SBC programming in response to the challenges presented by COVID-19. Program adaptations and messaging should be adapted in line with country context, available services, and local government response, including that of coordinating bodies responsible for COVID19 risk communication and community engagement efforts.
