Upcoming FIGO Global Webinars

2nd December

FIGO Global Webinar with FLASOG: (SP) Costo efectividad de los anticonceptivos post-evento obstétrico durante la pandemia de COVID-19 / (EN) Cost-effectiveness of post-obstetric event contraceptives during COVID-19.

Time: 3pm (GMT)

Description: (SP) La planificación pos parto es considerada una intervención clave para la reducción de la mortalidad materna, especialmente cuando se ofrece a poblaciones de gestantes de alto riesgo o que sobreviven a un evento de morbilidad materna extrema. En el marco de la pandemia del COVID 19, la oferta de servicios de salud en la región de las Américas se ha visto afectada y específicamente aquellos relacionados con la anticoncepción, por lo que se hace necesaria una nueva estrategia. Este seminario promoverá una iniciativa liderada por FIGO y que se ha venido implementando en América Latina con el apoyo de la OPS/OMS, orientada a la promoción de la aplicación del DIU pos parto como una estrategia costo/efectiva, que lamentablemente no tiene la cobertura esperada por la resistencia de algunos trabajadores de la salud, basadas más en mitos que en realidades. Esperamos que a partir de la información entregada se retome esta buena práctica, que en los momentos actuales cobra gran importancia.

Postpartum family planning is considered a key intervention for the reduction of maternal mortality, especially when offered to populations of high-risk pregnant women or those who survive an event of extreme maternal morbidity. In the framework of the COVID-19 pandemic, the supply of health services in the region of the Americas has been affected and specifically those related to contraception, which is why a new strategy is necessary. This Spanish-language webinar will promote an initiative led by FIGO that is being implemented in Latin America with the support of PAHO/WHO, aimed at promoting the application of the postpartum IUD as a cost/effective strategy, which unfortunately does not have coverage expected by the resistance of some health workers, based more on myth than reality. We hope that from the information provided, this good practice will be resumed, which at the present time is of great importance.
