... Elena Luiz Abril of UN Women and Salimata Soumare of the African Development Bank on publication of Green jobs for women in Africa by UN Women Africa. The transition to a green economy will create many new jobs around the world, including in sub-Saharan Africa. But will women share in these new jobs, and will the economic transformation help them move into higher-paid, more stable jobs that require more education and skills? The short answer is “yes” – provided countries adopt strong policies and programmes to make it happen.
...Sarah Whitmarsh, Mervyn Christian and their team at the Gates Institute on publication in February 2021 of Revitalizing local ownership of family planning: a decade of advocacy in Indonesia. A decade of strategic advocacy has re-energized the family planning community in Indonesia, enabling collaboration across government and civil society to increase multi-sector investment, capitalize on policy change, and improve access to quality information, services, and supplies. A key catalyst in this revival was the decade-long engagement of the Advance Family Planning Initiative at the Bill & Melinda Gates Institute for Population and Reproductive Health, with local partners Yayasan Cipta and the Johns Hopkins Center for Communication Programs Indonesia.
…David Lowrance, Virginia Loo and the international team working with Global HIV, Hepatitis and STI Programmes at the World Health Organization on publication of Consolidated HIV strategic information guidelines: Driving impact through programme monitoring and management. The guidelines, published in April 2020, present a set of essential indicators along with guidance on choosing, collecting and analyzing information to strategically manage and monitor the national health sector response to HIV. As the guidelines note, “Strategic information answers the questions: ‘How are patients doing?’, ‘How is the programme performing?’ and ‘How can we do better?’ Without these answers, the response to the HIV epidemic would be wandering in the dark.”
...Duff Gillespie, Beth Fredrick, Sabrina Karklins, and Sarah Whitmarsh at the Gates Institute for Population and Reproductive Health on publication in June 2020 of the Options Brief, The future of advocacy: local ownership, sustainability and grant-making.
