TURNING THE CHALLENGES OF COVID-19 INTO OPPORTUNITIES FOR COLLABORATION, INNOVATION AND KNOWLEDGE EXCHANGE

 

As the pandemic continues to challenge health systems capacity for delivering essential services, International Safe Abortion Day is an opportunity to celebrate global efforts to protect ongoing provision of comprehensive abortion care.

This web story published by WHO and HRP highlights inspiring examples of how the challenges of the pandemic can be turned into opportunities for innovation, knowledge sharing and collaboration, across borders and organisations – including the role that the IBP Platform and our communities of practice can play in this process!

Read about:

  • An interactive story map highlighting how organisations adapted their safe abortion care programmes in response to the pandemic
  • Using digital technology to safeguard timely access to safe abortion while seeking to protect clients, staff and communities from contracting COVID-19
  • Transparent dialogues about funding and procurement challenges, to inform future strategic work on how organizations can use funds more efficiently, minimise duplication of work, and protect availability of medical abortion.
  • How virtual communities, like the CoP on Comprehensive Abortion Care here on the IBP Platform can support stakeholders to share good practices and identify opportunities for partnering

How have you or your organisation adapted your work to protect access to abortion care in the context of COVID-19? Share with us on the live feed.
