Since May 2021, MOMENTUM Nepal has worked with 105 private sector service delivery points (73 pharmacies and 32 polyclinic/clinics/hospitals) in seven municipalities across two provinces (Karnali and Madhesh) to expand their access to high quality, person-centered FP services, especially for adolescents (15-19 years), and young adults (20-29 years).
MOMENTUM Integrated Health Resilience is happy to partner with Knowledge SUCCESS to bring you this curated collection of resources highlighting the importance of voluntary family planning and reproductive health (FP/RH) programs and services in fragile settings.
There is increasing consensus that adolescent-friendly health services—as currently implemented—are not consistently scalable nor sustainable. In an adolescent-responsive system, each building block of the health system—including public and private sectors and communities—respond to adolescent health needs.
With the prospect of delivering an effective COVID-19 vaccine ever changing, public health professionals have a responsibility to ensure uninterrupted access to essential health care to women and their families. We must take this opportunity to reinvigorate health systems strengthening efforts that prioritize decentralized, community-based and client-focused mechanisms for accessing health products, services and information.
