Increasing Men's Support for and Engagement in Pregnancy and Early Childhood: Adapting an Evidence-Based Intervention from Rwanda to Ethiopia

Ethiopia has experienced significant improvements in maternal and newborn health, but maternal and infant mortality remain high. To address the gaps in men's support and engagement in pregnancy and early childhood, the Transform: Primary Health Care activity conducted formative research and a collaborative stakeholder consultation process to adapt Program P to the Ethiopian context.

Understanding the Influence of Traditional, Socio-cultural Gender Norms and Practices on the Uptake of Maternal Health Services Provided to Women and Young Girls in Zambia's Eastern and Southern Provinces 

Gender is a key driver of health outcomes for everyone – women, men, girls, and boys. Gender-related factors compounded by traditional, socio-cultural gender norms and practices can limit provision and uptake of maternal and newborn health (MNH) services that improve health outcomes. The extent to which these affect provision and uptake of health services remains unknown in Zambia's Eastern and Southern Provinces. A gender analysis study was conducted to identify and understand effects of traditional, social, and cultural norms and religious beliefs on provision and uptake of MNH services.

Nigeria's Adaptation of World Health Organization (WHO) Clinical Guidelines on Health Care for Women Subjected to Intimate Partner Violence or Sexual Violence to Strengthen Post-Gender-Based Violence Service Provision

It is widely reported that health care professionals are often the first point of contact for survivors of sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV). Hence, strengthening providers' capacity for quality survivor-centered post-GBV care is a prerequisite for effective GBV response. In 2021, Nigeria's Federal Ministry of Health (FMoH) and partners adapted the World Health Organization (WHO) clinical guidelines on health care for women subjected to intimate partner violence or sexual violence for countrywide use. The MOMENTUM Country and Global Leadership project became the first partner to train providers on the adapted clinical guidelines in Sokoto and Ebonyi.
