Recommendations for Governments To Maintain Continuous Family Planning Services During Shocks and Stressors

People need continuous access to family planning (FP) services as an essential component of SRH care to prevent unintended pregnancy. As stewards of their national health programs, governments must lead the way on advancing policies, programs, and financing that build resilient health systems and enable continuous access to health services across shocks and stressors. This brief provides recommendations for governments to improve preparedness to provide continuous FP services, build resilient health systems that can withstand and adapt to crises, and meet FP needs during crises and stable times alike. This brief is co-branded with the Women's Refugee Commission, IAWG, FP2030, USAID, MOMENTUM Integrated Health Resilience, and PROPEL Adapt.

Assessment of Integrated Management of Childhood Illness (IMCI) Cross-Cutting Themes in Ghana, Malawi, and Sierra Leone

In 2022, MOMENTUM Country and Global Leadership undertook a multi-country qualitative assessment of the successes of, challenges to, and opportunities for effective implementation of Integrated Management of Childhood Illness (IMCI) through multi-level consultations and interviews with health workers, facility and district administrators, and health system leaders in Ghana, Malawi, and Sierra Leone. This comprehensive report of results from all three countries will help critically inform a global reinvigoration of the IMCI strategy which, despite having been launched more than 25 years ago, still has not reached programmatic scale in many of the countries where this proven approach could have a big impact on child survival.

Integrated Management of Childhood Illness in Three Districts in Ghana: Successes, Challenges, and Opportunities

This report captures results and analysis from interviews with Ghana Ministry of Health and Sanitation staff at the national, district, and facility levels to assess the successes of, challenges to, and opportunities for effective implementation of Integrated Management of Childhood Illness (IMCI), part of a multi-country study begun in 2022. Despite broad support for the IMCI protocol, implementation in Ghana has been limited, with four key challenges cited by multiple interviewees: 1) policy restriction on CHPS (Community Health Planning and Service) activities, 2) insufficient prioritization by international partners working in Ghana, 3) frequent stockouts of medicines essential for IMCI, and 4) lack of referral transport. The report provides key programmatic recommendations to address these barriers.

Policy Dialogue for Sustainable Change for Nurses and Midwives

In Ghana, India, Madagascar, and the Caribbean region, MOMENTUM Country and Global Leadership works with country stakeholders to embark on a systematic, results-based policy dialogue process to strengthen and support the nursing and midwifery workforce. The process involves engaging government and other relevant stakeholders to come together and examine the country landscape regarding current policies; discuss needed adaptations to legislation, guidelines, systems, strategies, and plans; and make and implement action plans to better meet the needs of midwives, nurses, and, ultimately, the people they serve. This new multi-country brief further details the process, lessons learned, and impacts thus far from these policy dialogue processes, including the way forward.
