SEX EDUCATION ANIMATION VIDEOS: NEPALI

Every young person has to make life-changing decisions about their sexual and reproductive health. However many of them cannot access clear, evidence-based information. We understand that talking about sex, abortion and related topics can be tricky for educators and parents. The more the world gets connected, the more are the chances of young people getting information from unreliable sources. To make it easy for young people, parents and educators to continue sharing the right sex education we partnered with AMAZE.org to create interesting, informative videos in Hindi language.  We cover five topics through five animation videos: 1. Staying connected safely: cyber safety (Nepali) The internet can be an amazing place to explore, but it is also good to practice online safety. Some tips include being careful about sharing personal information, reporting anyone who makes you feel uncomfortable online, and getting familiar with privacy settings. 2. Understanding abortion: what are your options? (Nepali) Abortion is an important sexual and reproductive rights issue. It is an individual choice, and in many countries like India and Nepal it is legal to end a pregnancy. 3. Sexting: what should you do? (Nepali) Sexting is making sexual images and sharing them using a phone or by posting them online. Use this video to explain the risks of texting to young people and educating them about respectful relationships. 4.Say no to STI stigma (Nepali) A sexually-transmitted infection (STI) is an infection that is spread through sexual contact. It is preventable. There are many stereotypes about what it takes to get a STI - this video is to sensitize young people about sexually transmitted infections and bust myths about it. 5. Access to sexual health for minors (Nepali) Sexual health includes many aspects like contraception, information about abortion, STI and HIV detection and treatment. This video explains and encourages young people to understand more about their body, its health and find ways to access sexual health services. ABOUT AMAZE.ORG AMAZE envisions a world that recognizes child and adolescent sexual development as natural and healthy, a world in which young people everywhere are supported and affirmed and the adults in their lives communicate openly and honestly with them about puberty, reproduction, relationships, sex and sexuality. In such a world, young people across the globe would have access to the information and support they need to develop into sexually healthy adults. https://amaze.org/what-is-amaze/

Abortion quality of care from the client perspective: qualitative study in India and Kenya

Abortion is a common and essential component of sexual and reproductive health care, yet social norms and stigma influence women’s decision-making and create barriers to safe abortion care. There is limited consensus on what domains constitute quality in abortion care and the opinions of people seeking abortion have little representation in current abortion quality measures. With an aim to assess the experiences of women on abortion care and reflects on the priorities for high-quality abortion care, a collaborative qualitative research was conducted in India & Kenya by IPPF in collaboration with IBIS.   Full article published in Health Policy and Planning Journal can be accessed: https://academic.oup.com/heapol/advance-article/doi/10.1093/heapol/czab065/6300625

Introducing Reproductive Health Kits for Facility & Crisis Set-up: Bangladesh

    During ‘natural’ disasters and humanitarian crises, reproductive health (RH) kits are often pre-positioned and administered, to reduce maternal mortality and morbidity. As part of IPPF’s innovations project initiative, a study was conducted from December 2020 to March 2021 to develop two low-budget reproductive health kits for use during humanitarian crisis and facility set-up in Bangladesh.  RH kits come in one package with essential medicines and supplies to speed up the provision of appropriate RH services (UNFPA, 2011, 2019; Ray-Bennett et al., 2019, 2021). These kits contribute towards the Minimum Initial Service Package (MISP) and the Sphere Minimum Standards in Disaster Response. As such, they are lifesaving (UNFPA, 2019). Yet these kits are unavailable at a national level in low-and middle-income countries. The University of Leicester, in collaboration with the Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University, Data Management Aid and the Directorate General of Family Planning and with funding from the International Planned Parenthood Federation - South Asia Region Office, identified gaps in existing RH kits, as well as developed two low-budget kits ---Facility RH Kit and Crisis RH Kit to overcome this gap. This policy brief introduces these Kits.

To make it easy for young people, parents and educators to continue sharing the right sex education we partnered with AMAZE.org to create interesting, informative videos in Hindi language.  We cover five topics through five animation videos: 1. Staying connected safely: cyber safety (Nepali) The internet can be an amazing place to explore, but it is also good to practice online safety. Some tips include being careful about sharing personal information, reporting anyone who makes you feel uncomfortable online, and getting familiar with privacy settings. 2. Understanding abortion: what are your options? (Nepali) Abortion is an important sexual and reproductive rights issue. It is an individual choice, and in many countries like India and Nepal it is legal to end a pregnancy. 3. Sexting: what should you do? (Nepali) Sexting is making sexual images and sharing them using a phone or by posting them online. Use this video to explain the risks of texting to young people and educating them about respectful relationships. 4.Say no to STI stigma (Nepali) A sexually-transmitted infection (STI) is an infection that is spread through sexual contact.

Abortion quality of care from the client perspective: qualitative study in India and Kenya

Abortion is a common and essential component of sexual and reproductive health care, yet social norms and stigma influence women’s decision-making and create barriers to safe abortion care. There is limited consensus on what domains constitute quality in abortion care and the opinions of people seeking abortion have little representation in current abortion quality measures. With an aim to assess the experiences of women on abortion care and reflects on the priorities for high-quality abortion care, a collaborative qualitative research was conducted in India & Kenya by IPPF in collaboration with IBIS.   Full article published in Health Policy and Planning Journal can be accessed: https://academic.oup.com/heapol/advance-article/doi/10.1093/heapol/czab065/6300625

Introducing Reproductive Health Kits for Facility & Crisis Set-up: Bangladesh

    During ‘natural’ disasters and humanitarian crises, reproductive health (RH) kits are often pre-positioned and administered, to reduce maternal mortality and morbidity. As part of IPPF’s innovations project initiative, a study was conducted from December 2020 to March 2021 to develop two low-budget reproductive health kits for use during humanitarian crisis and facility set-up in Bangladesh.  RH kits come in one package with essential medicines and supplies to speed up the provision of appropriate RH services (UNFPA, 2011, 2019; Ray-Bennett et al., 2019, 2021). These kits contribute towards the Minimum Initial Service Package (MISP) and the Sphere Minimum Standards in Disaster Response. As such, they are lifesaving (UNFPA, 2019). Yet these kits are unavailable at a national level in low-and middle-income countries. The University of Leicester, in collaboration with the Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University, Data Management Aid and the Directorate General of Family Planning and with funding from the International Planned Parenthood Federation - South Asia Region Office, identified gaps in existing RH kits, as well as developed two low-budget kits ---Facility RH Kit and Crisis RH Kit to overcome this gap. This policy brief introduces these Kits.
