The Role of the Private Sector in Family Planning Provision and Use: Past, Present, and Future

Presenter/AuthorMarguerite Farrell Private Sector Health Team Leader, Office of Population and Reproductive Health, Service Delivery Improvement Division, Global Health Bureau, USAID

The private sector is a complex set of actors who respond differently to the family planning needs of women and men in a relatively uncoordinated way. However, whether through the commercial sector, social marketing programs, NGOs, or FBOs, the private sector has been central to the expansion of family planning services in most countries around the world. This panel examines the diverse ways that the private sector has supported family planning needs world wide. Learn more >>

Making Family Planning a Priority

AuthorRamona Godbole USAID

The recently launched FP2020 initiative calls for increased resources for contraception from governments and donors to address global levels of unmet need for family planning (FP). Understanding who benefits from current public-sector distributions in FP will be critical in this new environment. Research has shown inequities in FP indicators across levels of wealth and place of residence in developing countries. However, no studies to date have focused on which socioeconomic groups benefit from FP funding; this is due in part to the dearth of detailed public-sector expenditure data for FP in developing countries. The study presented in this session, conducted by Futures Group, helps to fill this gap by employing a modified benefit-incidence approach that uses proxy estimates for currently unavailable data.

IBP Session Four: Scaling Up Integrated Services

Integrating FP and other services continues to expand and some models of integration have been identified as High Impact Practices (HIPs) for FP service delivery and are being scaled up. However, challenges in sustaining scaled-up initiatives are many and often prevent sustainability. Session objectives are to: (1) review the evidence around various models of FP integration, (2) discuss strategies for overcoming challenges to taking new models of service integration to scale and sustaining them; (3) access a list of tools and resources to support implementation of FP service integration models in health and non-health sectors and (4) identify gaps in evidence to guide decision-making around scale-up of integration modalities.

IBP Session 5 Shortage of Health Workers: How Task Shifting/Sharing Can Support FP Programs

The all too common shortage of health workers is often a barrier to providing access to contraceptive choice and services. WHO’s 2012 task shifting guidelines identify approaches to utilize health workers with multiple levels of training to deliver FP services. The session objectives are to provide:

  1. An overview of evidence-based strategies for overcoming the shortage of health workers including task shifting/sharing
  2. Resources to participants to implement task shifting/sharing
  3. Guidance on scaling up task shifting/sharing strategies.

A brief summary of selected country experiences on task shifting for FP will be followed by small group discussions based on country experiences and focused on 1) policies and guidelines to aid in scaling up task-shifting, 2) introduction, implementation and maintaining quality while scaling up programs.

The “F Word”: Learning from failure to ensure success

Moderator/Presenter, AuthorEllen Starbird Director of the Office of Population and Reproductive Health, USAID

This panel builds on a growing interest in learning from failures. It begins by providing a theoretical perspective on the critical role of failure in advancing development programming and outlines a broad framework for using “failures” to improve programs. The framework is then applied to two case studies that explore how program results were strengthened by their response to negative results. The final presentation summarizes donor perspectives on failure, and explores organizational incentives and barriers to acknowledging failures and thereby promoting learning. Learn more >>

Using Technology to Improve Family Planning Practice and Policy

Non-presenter AuthorMoni Sinha Sagar USAID India

Since 2003, USAID has funded Abt Associates to implement a program aiming to increase overall use of modern reversible methods of contraception through increased access and demand for injectable contraceptives (IC) by introducing DMPA (Depot Medroxy Progesterone Acetate, a three-monthly IC) to the method mix of contraceptive choices available through the private health sector. The program faced an environment hostile to IC, including reluctance on part of the Government of India and opposition from women’s rights groups during the initial phases. This presentation will provide highlights of program implementation over the past 10 years, evaluation results and lessons learned for others introducing new contraceptive methods through the private sector in challenging environments.

Successful Examples of Task-Shifting to Help Expand Access to Contraceptive Implants Plenary

SpeakerRobert Clay Deputy Assistant Administrator, Bureau for Global Health, USAID

After the 2012 London Summit on Family Planning, more and more countries are incorporating family planning into their public health programs. New laws are being passed to address policy, financial, delivery and social-cultural barriers to women accessing contraceptive information, services and supplies. One critical barrier remaining is the lack of trained health care professionals, particularly in rural settings, to insert and remove contraceptive implants. In the wake of new WHO guidelines, several countries have or are now piloting programs that support task-shifting for implant insertion, removals and counseling to midwives, nurses and community health workers. This panel will provide an update on the new WHO guidelines around task-shifting, feature examples of where task shifting has successfully been achieved, how evidence-based approaches can be used to support policy change, and provide a forum for countries and organizations that may be considering similar strategies to ask questions and take away critical lessons.

Benin at the Point of Launching Family Planning/Le Bénin au Point de Décollage de la Planification Familiale

Chair/AuthorMilton Bonoan Amayun Family Health Team, USAID Benin

This panel presents the different family planning programs that have just begun in Bénin and promise to quickly launch family planning. Several partners describe their efforts in the domains of policy, social mobilization, provision of health services and operations research. The interventions that have been initiated include changes in national strategies, introduction of long-term methods and better engagement of community-based actors. Some preliminary results for a year and several months suggest that Bénin’s family planning indicators are at the launching point.

Research in Family Planning

Non-Presenter AuthorLois Schaefer USAID

Family planning practice: Use of nearly all methods of modern contraception requires contact with a health worker. Nowhere is access to health workers poorer than in sub-Saharan Africa, where fewer than 3 percent of the world’s health workers are located and only 20 percent of married women use a modern method of contraception (CPR). Sub-Saharan Africa’s CPR masks important regional diversity with western Africa lagging far behind eastern Africa, even though the regions share comparable levels of health worker access as measured by the health worker reach index.

Choosing How to Fund Family Planning

Presenter, AuthorShawn Malarche Office of Population and Reproductive Health, USAID

Non-Presenter AuthorKimberly Cole, USAID

Non-Presenter AuthorVeronica Valdivieso USAID

 

Using measurements of unmet need for family planning to inform program investments for health service integration: Despite the availability of highly effective contraceptive technologies, over 80 million unintended pregnancies occurred worldwide in 2012. Most of these unintended pregnancies (79 percent) occur to women with an unmet need for family planning. Integrated service delivery is a common strategy used by FP programs to reach these women. Often referred to as “no missed opportunities,” integration of FP services into key health platforms has the potential to reach women with unmet need during usual encounters with the health system.

Tracking Trends in Contraceptive Use

Non-Presenter AuthorJames Shelton GH, USAID

In the 7 years since the publication of the first method skew paper, several shifts have occurred in method preference, such as a greater reliance on injectables and a decrease in permanent methods. The current analysis also presents specific countries where shifts in the method mix have occurred. Reliance on female and male sterilization and the IUD decreased in more countries than it increased. By contrast, use of injectables increased in nearly 60 percent of countries. Implants – relatively new in family planning programs – made up at least 10 percent of method mix in the period 2001-2012. Learn more >>

Take it Outside! Exploring the Evidence for Youth Reproductive Health Programming Beyond the Clinic

PresenterCate Lane USAID

Today over 50 percent of the world’s population is below the age of 25. Addressing the needs of this population is critical to achieving Millennium Development Goals not only for health, but for education, economic growth, and other sectors as well. While knowledge among youth has improved, risk taking behaviors continue to put adolescents at high risk for unintended pregnancy, unsafe abortion, HIV/AIDS, sexual transmitted infections, and other harmful health outcomes. Positive youth development approaches that engage youth along with communities, schools, peer groups and families have been used to develop adolescent sexual reproductive health programs in the United States with some success. However, such approaches have yet to be rigorously implemented or tested in low and middle income countries. Learn more >>

Birth Intervals, Post-Partum Family Planning, and Mortality Outcomes

ChairPatricia MacDonald Service Delivery Improvement Programme Advisor, USAID

This panel collectively examines some of the latest evidence on the health impact of post-partum family planning (PPFP), and its continuing impact through the extended postpartum or 24 months following childbirth. The first presentation delves into demographic survey data and reviews the key elements that separate PPFP from FP generally, including the association of close birth-to-pregnancy intervals with early childhood mortality, and the types of population-level data that support the PPFP distinction. The second presentation discusses the mixed results of a computer projection tool to model the mortality impact of high coverage of PPFP, both alone and in combination with such optimal breastfeeding as is associated with lactational amenorrhea method, as evidence of the potential large-scale impact of these interventions. The third presentation provides a powerful example of the application of field results on PPFP and its integration: findings from a quasi-experimental, community-based trial in Bangladesh that integrated FP counseling and services with existing maternal and newborn health interventions. Lastly, our fourth speaker will discuss a missed opportunity to offer family planning to mothers of sick newborns. Learn more >>
