Global Sexual and Reproductive Health Package for Men and Adolescent Boys. IPPF and UNFPA. (2017)

immage

The Global Sexual and Reproductive Health Service Package for Men and Adolescent Boys has been developed to support providers of sexual and reproductive health services. It aims to increase the range and quality of sexual and reproductive services provided that meet the specific and diverse needs of men and adolescents boys. It covers men and adolescent boys in all their diversity, and takes a positive approach to sexual and reproductive health, seeing this not just as the absence of disease, but the positive expression of one’s gender, sex and sexuality.

Women on the Move Migration, Care Work and Health. WHO. (2017)

immage

A global paradox is emerging in which care workers - who are largely migrant women, often working in informal home settings - make a considerable contribution to public health in many countries but are themselves exposed to health risks, face barriers to accessing care, and enjoy few labour and social protections.

WHO has produced a new report on this population group, collating evidence across sectors. This report breaks new ground in casting a wide net across disciplines – health, labour, employment, social protection, social services, law, immigration, cross-border movement and citizenship – to shed light on a particular population group that both provides care as well as needs it to maintain their own health and well-being. It looks at the lives of these migrant women care workers as well as the situation for their households left behind. It takes a transnational perspective appropriate to our interconnected world.

Beyond the Barriers: Framing Evidence on Health System Strengthening to Improve the Health of Migrants Experiencing Poverty and Social Exclusion. WHO. (2017)

immage

“Leaving no one behind” is a centrefold principle in the Sustainable Development Agenda. Those “left behind” are a vastly heterogeneous group. They face a wide range of barriers to health services that differ across countries, communities and individuals. As such, approaches to health system strengthening to leave no one behind need to account for this heterogeneity and the complexity of barriers. Some migrants, in particular those experiencing poverty and social exclusion, face intersecting and compounding barriers.

Managing Complications in Pregnancy and Childbirth: A Guide for Midwives and Doctors – 2nd Ed. WHO. (2017)

image

Since the first edition was published in 2000, Managing Complications in Pregnancy and Childbirth has been translated into several languages and today is used widely in training for and the provision of emergency obstetric care. The new edition brings the guidance in the manual into line with WHO’s current recommendations for emergency obstetric and newborn care.

While most pregnancies and births are uneventful, all pregnancies are at risk. Around 15% of all pregnant women will develop a potentially life-threatening complication that calls for skilled care, and some will require a major obstetrical intervention to survive. This manual is written for midwives and doctors at the district hospital who are responsible for the care of women with complications of pregnancy, childbirth or the immediate postpartum period, including immediate problems of the newborn.

Global Investments in Tuberculosis Research and Development: Past, Present, and Future. WHO. (2017)

immage

This document aims to articulate a coherent vision of the research needs to end TB and elaborates on the funding and structural requirements that are necessary to operationalize this vision. It describes how some of the research funded in the past has delivered benefits to patients and influenced policy- and decision-making, but also how little is being invested in TB R&D in comparison with other diseases, such as HIV and malaria, that also affect poor populations. The paper shows that, despite significant progress, previous investments were not sufficient to warrant success in tackling difficult challenges, such as multidrug-resistant TB (MDR-TB), expedited development of new and improved tools, and effective deployment of such tools.
