COVID-19 Survey Results

As the COVID-19 crisis was unfolding across the globe in late March, IPPF launched a rapid survey to glean an early analysis of the impact of C-19 on MA operations and SRH service provision in order to inform priorities for an IPPF response.

A preliminary analysis of the situation shows that MAs are struggling to ensure continuity of SRH services during the crisis.

Of the 121 MAs that participated in the survey, 104 are SRH service providers. The majority (66%) of those that are service providers reported a decrease in the number of operational service delivery points since the C-19 outbreak began (with 5,633 closures), particularly affecting community-based service delivery. Moreover, the vast majority of these MAs (88%) reported having to scale down availability of at least one SRH service category, and 35% reported scaling down all SRH services.

The C-19 crisis has also impacted MAs’ ability to pay staff, with more than 200 staff members across 12 MAs either suspended or terminated since the outbreak began. Not only does this impact the lives and livelihoods of our colleagues, but it decreases MAs’ capacity to provide quality, rights-based SRH services.

At the same time, the survey revealed deep disruptions to the commodities supply chain since the implementation of C-19 measures. More than one-third of MAs reported shortages of key SRH commodities, including contraceptives, safe abortion supplies, HIV medicines, and pregnancy tests, among others.

    I want to congratulate all of the IPPF staff and volunteers who continue to try to offer SRHR services, advocacy or comprehensive sex education during this most difficult time. It is so good to be able to share any novel approaches or better ways to meet the most vulnerable. The pandemic is gendered in its impacts, but the work of the IPPF will help to reduce potential life-long distress or even greater disadvantage through its deep caring. I also want to acknowledge the ongoing commitment of donors where they have seen the imperative of continuing to support the vital work of the IPPF.

    Nous rendons un hommage mérité à l’IPPF qui, à travers son Groupe de Travail COVID-19, a pu rassembler et encourager toutes les Associations Membres pour qu’elles se mobilisent pour faire front à la pandémie aux côtés des autres acteurs au niveau national et local. Les volontaires et staffs ont salué la décision prise d’avancer les subventions pour que nos clients continuent de recevoir les informations et services, et que les prestataires des services bénéficient des mesures de protection individuelle. La mise à jour régulière des informations sur l’évolution de la pandémie dans les plateformes Microsite et Slack, le recueil d’informations auprès des Associations Membres sur la continuité des services et bien d’autres actions du Groupe de Travail ont plus que jamais renforcé le sentiment d’appartenance à une même et seule famille qu’est l’IPPF.

    I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s both equally educative and
    amusing, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head.

    The problem is something too few folks are speaking intelligently about.
