COVID-19: How We’re Responding

It’s #WorldBreastfeedingWeek!

Our #Tanzania team commemorated it by co-organizing a community event in Tanga in partnership w/ the Government of Tanzania & other orgs. Community members were provided with #SRH info & services as part of our Scaling Up Family Planning Programme.

Today, @MichelleObama and @melindagates sounded an alarm: We must ensure continued access to sexual and reproductive health (#SRH) and gender-based violence (#GBV) services for adolescents during #COVID19.

Donors usually have a face that is male and cisgender. We need to purposefully and consciously disrupt the system, says @MpofuMpho @voiceofafrica14 on @WomenDev’s talk on #gender and #leadership.

"Women’s organizations are still mostly headed by men. This is not working," says @MelissaGirlUp @GirlUp on @WomenDev’s virtual talk on #gender and #leadership.

Reproductive health, especially abortion, is taboo in India. It’s not enough that it’s legal; women have to be empowered enough to ask for it. It's a community problem, not an individual problem: Jasmine Lovely George @Hidden_Pockets on @WomenDev's talk on #gender & #leadership.

Although there were 23 years between the end of Hugo's tenure @EngenderHealth and the start of mine, many of the themes he championed remain themes today, including ensuring informed choice and rights in #SRH. I send my love to his family and friends. https://twitter.com/EngenderHealth/status/1290316487190880257

Hugo Hoogenboom, a leader of EngenderHealth from 1981-1995, has passed away. We honor Hugo’s legacy by continuing to work for a world in which everyone has access to the info & services needed to make their own reproductive health choices.

Why are sexual and reproductive health services not 'essential services' during the Corona virus pandemic? Covid 19 responses must include women's reproductive health needs. https://www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/article/PIIS0140-6736(20)31679-2/fulltext
