As African countries join the world in imposing measures to prevent the spread of highly contagious COVID-19, sexual and reproductive health care continues to be impacted. Physical closure of health facilities and movement restrictions have limited access to these much-needed services.
To date, there have been quite a number of conversations around how FP/RH access has been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. However, conversations on alternative traditional mechanisms for continued FP/RH care have not made center stage around the conversations.
- To facilitate a conversation on the impact COVID-19 on access to FP/RH care in the East Africa region
- To discuss the role of traditional FP/RH methods in ensuring continued self-care for women and young girls during the COVID-19 Crisis
- To suggest policy measures in ensuring continued access to FP/RH care in times of crisis.
