Stigma associated with COVID-19 poses a serious threat to the lives of healthcare workers, patients, and survivors of the disease.
While many Senegalese mothers visit health facilities to immunize their newborns, far fewer discuss family planning options with a health worker. Integrating family planning counseling into immunization services is a promising practice to address reproductive health needs in the extended postpartum period.

Together, IntraHealth International and the Ministry of Health and Social Action in Senegal, as part of the Neema project which aims to improve health for women and children in Senegal by strengthening health services and making them accessible to more people, we identified behavioral barriers to using contraception and designed solutions to help young people make active decisions about their sexual health.
This technical brief presents findings and lessons learned from small-scale interventions implemented by MCSP with first-time parents (FTPs) in three diverse settings. This presentation of cross-country learning is intended to help program implementers design effective interventions for FTPs and to inform future research and learning agendas.
This toolkit shares a study design and participatory tools for formative research exploring the factors influencing use (and non-use) of sexual and reproductive health services by FT/YPs and is intended to inform program design.
Breakthrough RESEARCH, under work led by ideas42, applied behavioral design to assess the behavioral challenges that prevent providers in Zambia from providing respectful maternal care (RMC) in urban and rural health care settings.
