COVID-19: How We’re Responding

Media Center

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

Accessing #familyplanning services is critical in #COVID19 response!

A6) We must value ALL the work women do. The EquityTool by @Metrics4mgmt can be included as part of routine data collection on #COVID19 response; we must also measure the proportion of women out of paid workforce, the dependency ratio & educational status. #GenderData #DevexFOCUS https://twitter.com/devex/status/1288451736332574721

A3) Collecting #VAW data amid #COVID19 is difficult due to risk to women seeking help; lockdowns hindering movement to safe spaces; gaps in training for service providers; & ongoing gaps in data systems. We must address #VAW and #GBV despite the pandemic. #GenderData #DevexFocus https://twitter.com/devex/status/1288447944916639746

A5) National stats offices should ensure that collected data is not only gender disaggregated but also informed by age disaggregation & they should capture how national governments' #COVID19 response efforts are benefiting women & other vulnerable groups. #GenderData #DevexFocus

A4) The EquityTool developed by @Metrics4mgmt provides important estimates of wealth quintiles, while the Washington Group Short Set of Disability Questions provides an opportunity to assess the extent to which #COVID19 is affecting those w/ disabilities. #GenderData #DevexFocus

EngenderHealth Releases 2019 Leadership Report

We are excited to share EngenderHealth’s 2019 Leadership Report with supporters, so they can learn about the great work that they make possible around the globe.

This report illustrates EngenderHealth’s philosophy that sexual and reproductive health and rights are goals in and of themselves, and are also means to other ends. We ensure women have access to contraceptive options and the full spectrum of family planning and reproductive health services. We also help women and girls access education and employment options, so they can choose their own paths in life. We see these programs as being closely connected, and we know our supporters do, too.

Last year, EngenderHealth ensured that 6.2 million people had access to family planning services and trained more than 17,000 healthcare providers in 18 countries. Beyond the numbers, the report shares the stories of some of the individuals whose lives have changed for the better because of the variety of services we provide. The Leadership Report tells the story of our economic empowerment efforts in Malawi to mitigate gender-based violence and promote gender equality, as well as our training for social workers in India to enable young girls to pursue an education and avoid forced marriage.

This Leadership Report also notes the ways EngenderHealth continues to grow, with the recent hiring of our new Director of Individual Giving, Audrey M. Johnson. Audrey brings more than 20 years of experience in philanthropic giving, and with her we intend to expand our engagement with supporters like you who ensure EngenderHealth’s independence and long-term viability.

We are proud of the difference our work makes, and our supporters should be too. Please read the 2019 Leadership Report and witness the many ways your support is improving women’s lives every day.
