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

Launching Comic Books for Change in Togo

Do you remember completing Captain Haddock’s catchphrase while reading The Adventures of Tintin? Or waiting to look up Calvin and Hobbs in the newspaper? Comics have a way of seamlessly touching everyday lives. Beyond the joys of reading, comic books also influence popular norms and culture. As part of a new initiative from Agir pour la Planification Familiale (AgirPF), a project funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), EngenderHealth and partners are leveraging this creative medium as a means to engage young people in West Africa in sexual and reproductive health.

Three Ways We Have Expanded Youth Access to Contraception in the United States

It’s important on World Contraception Day to reflect on concrete ways in which we’ve expanded access to contraceptives for young people. Access to contraception is vital for ensuring health and for breaking cycles of poverty. In fact, access to a full range of contraceptive methods and education is critical to the well-being of youth and their communities in preventing sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and unplanned pregnancy. In some communities, contraceptive access for youth is also a means of survival, with pregnancy resulting in more deaths of adolescent females aged 15–19 than any other cause (Save the Children Fund, 2012).
