Is Your Health System Adolescent- And Gender-Responsive? A Participatory Tool for Analysis and Action Planning

Adolescent-responsive health systems intentionally transition the emphasis from creating separate adolescent-friendly spaces towards ensuring that all health services are responsive to the needs and rights of adolescents by incorporating adolescent-friendly elements that have demonstrated effectiveness into the health system. MOMENTUM Country and Global Leadership developed an assessment tool to enable ministries of health (MOHs), civil society, and other stakeholders to assess whether and how the health system currently responds to the needs and rights of adolescents, including how the system acknowledges and addresses gender barriers and opportunities that influence adolescents’ receipt of quality care. This tool can be used to inform work plans, national priority setting, and budgeting, as well as to measure and monitor a health system’s progress in meeting the needs and rights of adolescents of all genders over time.

Improving Maternal and Infant Health: Adapting the MAMI Care Pathway in South Sudan

The Management of At-Risk Mothers and Infants (MAMI) Care Pathway (CP) is an intervention to improve the health of mothers and their infants. The current iteration of the Care Pathway, Version 3.0, was updated in 2021 and has been adapted to a number of contexts. MOMENTUM Integrated Health Resilience is working with the Government of South Sudan and other implementers to adapt and use the Care Pathway and to document lessons learned so that other countries can establish a process of their own for adapting this intervention, in particular to fragile contexts. In this webinar, we describe the Care Pathway, the process of adapting it in South Sudan, and the operations research we will conduct to better understand how the Care Pathway might be adapted in many different settings.
