What is the program enhancement that can intensify the impact of High Impact Practices (HIPs) in family planning?
Use digital technologies to support health systems and service delivery for family planning.
This new HIP brief summarizes the experience and evidence for the most commonly used digital health technologies aimed at supporting health systems and providers. Key messages from the brief include:
- Family planning indicators should be incorporated into new and existing digital health and logistics management information systems.
- More research is needed about when and how digital applications for provider support are most effective, efficient, and scalable.
- Mobile money and electronic financial transactions have the potential to provide efficiency and transparency of health care financing and transactions.
Increasing the uptake of long-acting and permanent methods of family planning: A qualitative study with village midwives in East Java and Nusa Tenggara Barat Provinces, Indonesia.
Just published in the October 2017 issue of Midwifery, this article describes a qualitative study of the Improving Contraceptive Method Mix Project (ICMM) in Indonesia. The article looks at attitudes and perceptions of village level midwives regarding provision of family planning, particularly long-acting methods. Highlights:
- Shortage of knowledge about LAPMs—resulting in misconceptions at the community level—can prevent utilization of LAPMs.
- Confusion about midwives eligibility to deliver family planning services can further hinder LAPM availability and utilization.
- Village midwives have limited opportunities to attend CTU and counseling trainings.
- Only a few midwives have IEC materials to use during family planning counseling sessions.
- There was a shortage of LAPM-related equipment among village midwives.
