Family planning saves lives and promotes resilience in humanitarian contexts

CARE, International Rescue Committee, Save the Children, Women's Refugee Commission, (2017)

Globally, it is estimated that 128.6 million people are currently in need of humanitarian assistance. Of these individuals, approximately one-fourth are women and girls of reproductive age. Although family planning is one of the most life-saving, empowering, and cost-effective interventions for women and girls, it remains an overwhelming gap in emergency responses due to a lack of prioritisation and funding. Consequently, many women and girls are forced to contend with an unmet need for family planning and unplanned pregnancies in addition to the traumas of conflict, disaster, and displacement.

Mobile clinic, to meet the needs of isolated populations

UNFPA Togo, (2016)

Provision of integrated RH/FP/STI/HIV services
In Togo, the limited access of populations, especially women, young girls and children to Reproductive Health (RH), Family Planning, treatment of sexually transmissible infections (STI) and struggle against HIV quality services is responsible for the continuously low indicators in these areas. To remedy the problem, UNFPA Togo, in partnership with the Department of Family Health, the Health districts and the NGOs 3ASC and ATBEF, support the initiative of the Mobile Clinic to bring RH/FP/STI/HIV quality services closer to the women, the young girls and children living in rural areas in its intervention areas, with the aim of reaching MDG 4 and 5.

A Comparison of Summary Measures of Quality of Service and Quality of Care for Family Planning in Haiti, Malawi, and Tanzania

Mallick, Lindsay, Wenjuan Wang, Temsah, Gheda, (2017)

DHS Methodological Report No. 20

This study used Service Provision Assessment (SPA) and Demographic and Health Survey (DHS) data from Haiti, Malawi, and Tanzania to compare traditionally used additive methods with a data reduction method—principal component analysis (PCA).
We scored the quality of health facilities with three approaches (simple additive, weighted additive, and PCA) for two constructs: quality of services, with only facilities-level data, and quality of care, which incorporates observation and client data. We ranked facilities as high, medium, or low quality based on their scores. Our results indicated that the rankings change with the scoring methodology. There was more consistency in the rankings of facilities by the simple additive and PCA methods than the weighted additive and PCA-based rankings. This may be due to the low factor loadings and little variance explained by the first component in the PCA. We aggregated facility scores to their respective DHS clusters (Haiti, Malawi) or regions (Tanzania) and geographically linked them to women interviewed in DHS surveys to test associations between the use of family planning services and the quality environment, as measured with each index.

Rationale Kontrazeptiva-Auswahl für Frauengesundheitsprojekte in Ländern des globalen Südens

Eds.: BUKO Pharmakampagne , (2018)

Unsere E-Learning Einheit zum Thema rationale Auswahl von Kontrazeptiva richtet sich an MitarbeiterInnen von Programmen und Projekten deutscher Nichtregierungsorganisationen in der Entwicklungszusammenarbeit, die in der humanitären Hilfe im Bereich reproduktive Gesundheit und Frauengesundheit tätig sind. Das Modul soll dazu beitragen, Frauengesundheitsprojekte in Ländern des globalen Südens so zu planen und zu betreuen, dass eine rationale Entscheidung bei der Auswahl an Kontrazeptiva sichergestellt werden kann. Frauengesundheitsprojekte sollten nicht allein den Zugang zu Verhütungsmitteln verbessern, sondern darüber hinaus auf Nutzen, Schaden und Anwendungsbeschränkungen der einzelnen Produkte aufmerksam machen sowie den NutzerInnen gute Argumente und Entscheidungskriterien zur Auswahl von Kontrazeptiva liefern. Dadurch können Gesundheitsgefahren durch Kontrazeptiva für Frauen und Mütter verringert werden.
