#Selfcare is defined by @WHO as the ability of individuals, families & communities to promote health, prevent disease, maintain health, & cope with illness with or without the support of a healthcare provider. Learn what it means for #COVID19: https://t.co/NDVOjYpfAV

Public health crises, like #COVID19, exacerbate gender inequalities: it's when adolescent pregnancy rates increase due to more barriers to accessing #contraception & #GBV increases due to diminished ability to leave unsafe homes.

Speaking on @GlobalHealthOrg webinar, EngenderHealth CEO @TraciLBaird says we need to work together to find safe ways to continue #SRHR & #globalhealth advocacy during the #COVID19 crisis to ensure we lose as little ground as possible while still supporting the #pandemic response

As the #globalhealth community works to address the #coronavirus pandemic, how can we remain vigilant about #SRHR and #genderequality?

EngenderHealth Previews its Participation in the Fifth International Conference on Family Planning (ICFP) in Kigali, Rwanda

November 07, 2018 (Washington, DC; Kigali, Rwanda) EngenderHealth—a global women’s health and sexual and reproductive rights organization—will join thousands of family planning advocates, community leaders, policymakers, researchers, scientists, and youth from around the world who are attending the fifth International Conference on Family Planning (ICFP) on 12-15 November 2018 in Kigali, Rwanda. EngenderHealth will use the opportunity to showcase its commitment to access, excellence, and impact in family planning.

This year’s theme for ICFP is “Investing for a Lifetime of Returns,” which highlights the extensive “social and economic benefits of family planning investments—for individuals, families, and countries.” EngenderHealth supports this theme through a commitment to expanding access to contraception, to improving quality and achieving excellence in reproductive health programming, and to delivering measurable impact. At ICFP, EngenderHealth will celebrate its 75th anniversary and renew its commitment to gender-transformative programming and to empowering women and girls everywhere to live their lives to their full potentials.

EngenderHealth has been selected to deliver 9 oral presentations and 25 poster presentations at the conference, reflecting the organization’s role as a technical leader in the field. Additionally, building upon EngenderHealth’s recognized leadership in male engagement in reproductive health and family planning, President and CEO, Traci L. Baird, MPH, will moderate a session on boys and men as partners. EngenderHealth is also leveraging ICFP as the opportunity to launch REDI: A Client-Centered Counseling Framework, an updated, comprehensive approach and training curriculum to strengthening counseling for contraception.

Baird noted, “ICFP comes at a perfect time for EngenderHealth to reconnect with colleagues and partners and to establish new relationships. Our commitment to FP is unwavering and we are eager to share lessons from our programs and learn from participants from around the world.”

Attendees in Kigali are invited to join EngenderHealth’s scheduled events or visit their booth—#33. Those who are unable to participate in Kigali, are invited to visit EngenderHealth’s ICFP microsite, where all conference posters and presentations are posted and the new REDI framework materials are available. For additional details on EngenderHealth’s participation at ICFP, including a schedule of events, please visit www.engenderhealth.org/icfp2018.
