Contraceptive Eligibility for Women at High Risk of HIV: Guidance Statement. WHO. (2019)

immage

The World Health Organization (WHO) convened a Guideline Development Group (GDG) meeting from 29 to 31 July 2019 to review global guidance on contraceptive eligibility for women at high risk of HIV acquisition to and determine whether revisions to the fifth edition of the Medical eligibility criteria for contraceptive use (MEC) were needed. The issue was deemed critical, particularly for sub-Saharan Africa, given the high lifetime risk of acquiring HIV alongside the importance of hormonal contraception in offering women and adolescent girls’ choice and in reducing their risk of unintended pregnancy, a common threat to the health, well-being and lives of women and adolescent girls.

Maternal Health Care in Nepal: Trends and Determinants. Aryal, Krishna Kumar, Sharad K. Sharma, Mukti Nath Khanal, Bihungum Bista, Shiv Lal Sharma, Shambhu Kafle, and Mona Mehta Steffen. (2019)

immage

Despite the longstanding efforts of the Ministry of Health and Population (MoHP) in Nepal to promote maternal and neonatal health (MNH), progress has been slow for MNH service use. This analysis aimed to identify determinants of maternal health care use: antenatal care (ANC) visits, institutional delivery, and postnatal care (PNC) check-up. We analyzed 2011 and 2016 Nepal Demographic and Health Surveys (NDHS) data to illustrate the trend of these three outcome variables, and 2016 NDHS data alone for determinants of the outcome variables. The number of women included in the analysis was 1,440 for ANC, 1,478 for place of delivery, and 718 for PNC.
