Watch the Recording: Improving Access to Post Pregnancy Family Planning on the NHQI Collaborative Featured

Post-pregnancy family planning (PPFP) focuses on the prevention of unintended and closely spaced pregnancies in the first 12 months post pregnancy (irrespective of pregnancy outcome) and is considered a life-saving intervention for mothers and their children. Post-pregnancy women are among those populations with the greatest unmet need for family planning (FP), yet they often do not receive the information and services they need to prevent unintended pregnancies.

Speakers:

  • Dr Modupe Oludipe, Director of the Health Strategy and Development Foundation, Nigeria
  • Dr Lara Adetukasi, Associate at the Health Strategy and Development Foundation, Nigeria

 Over the past 5 years, HSDF has supported the implementation of the Nigeria Healthcare Quality Initiative (NHQI) in over 130 primary and secondary (public and private) health facilities in Lagos, Imo and Niger State. The NHQI was conceived to improve maternal and newborn health (MNH) outcomes by addressing key system-wide constraints that impede the sustained achievement of better health outcomes.

Post-pregnancy family planning (PPFP) focuses on the prevention of unintended and closely spaced pregnancies in the first 12 months post pregnancy (irrespective of pregnancy outcome) and is considered a life-saving intervention for mothers and their children. Post-pregnancy women are among those populations with the greatest unmet need for family planning (FP), yet they often do not receive the information and services they need to prevent unintended pregnancies.

The NHQI team together with front-line providers applied quality improvement (QI) principles to improve the integration of FP counseling into routine postpartum services in 35 private sector facilities in Lagos State, Nigeria.

During this webinar, we will:
- introduce the NHQI and lay the context for the PPFP initiative
- describe the application of improvement methods to integrate PPFP into routine post-partum services
- share the results we obtained as well as data from other implementers
- discuss implementation challenges, limitations of approach and lessons learnt

At the end of the webinar, participants will:
- have an enhanced understanding of the NHQI
- learn how to modify the learning collaborative to ensure generation and implementation of change ideas
- be able to identify and mitigate potential challenges that may be encountered in designing a PPFP intervention in the private sector that integrates QI principles
