Sexual and Reproductive Health and Universal Health Coverage Learning by Sharing Portal
The WHO and UNFPA Portal equips multiple stakeholders with the necessary evidence and “how to” tools to advance the SRH-UHC integration agenda.
Global Database on the Prevalence of Violence Against Women
This interactive data visualization platform presents the first global, regional and country/area estimates on intimate partner violence and global and regional estimates on non-partner sexual violence in the United Nations Sustainable Goals era (2015-2030). These Violence against Women, 2018 estimates draw on population-based, nationally or sub-nationally representative surveys/studies conducted between 2000-2018 from 161 countries and areas.
FGM Cost Calculator
The WHO FGM Cost Calculator estimates the current and projected financial health care costs associated with FGM in specific countries, as well as the potential cost savings to health systems of reducing new cases of FGM.
WHO’s Programme Reporting Standards for sexual, reproductive, maternal, newborn, child and adolescent health
Interactive checklist to be used by SRMNCAH programmes.
Antenatal Care Resource Portal
The WHO/HRP online resource portal for antenatal care (ANC) holds relevant evidence and tools related to the WHO’s ANC recommendations, including the qualitative and quantitative evidence-base, and tools and documents to support country adaptation and implementation. In the future it will serve as launching platform for the ANC Smart guidelines and will be updated as new resources become available. The portal’s goal is to increase access to ANC related-evidence (for policy-makers, health workers, and women) and will be a key link between these users and SRH’s Living guideline approach.
Despite the decrease in the number of maternal deaths, the world will fail to meet its 2030 Sustainable Development Goal target. This means, at the current rate of progress, over an additional million women will lose their lives. Explore the latest maternal mortality estimates for 2020 as well as trends since 2000.
Fetal Growth and Birth Weight Quantile Calculator
The Fetal Growth parameters online calculator is based on the World Health Organization Fetal Growth Study and intended for international use. The graphs reflect the overall fetal growth variation in selected healthy low-risk pregnancies under favourable nutritional and social conditions in different parts of the world; and they encompass some significant differences in fetal growth between populations, prudent to keep in mind when applying and interpreting, as with any use of references.
The Birth Weight Calculator is an Excel sheet that can be downloaded for offline use. It estimates the quantile of a given baby weight, considering the sex and the gestational age at birth.
Global preterm birth estimates
Preterm birth is the leading cause of death in children under five worldwide. While preterm survival rates have increased in higher-income countries, in many low- and middle- income countries (LMICs) preterm newborns still die due to a lack of adequate newborn care. On this website, you can explore the latest estimates of preterm birth rates at global, regional and national levels for 2014, with time trends in selected countries.
Uncovering the true burden of maternal morbidity
A better understanding of the extent of maternal morbidity is needed so that it can be both recognised and effectively addressed by countries and health systems. In recognition of this need, WHO has launched a new tool to help health professionals and researchers better monitor and measure this burden – the WHO Maternal Morbidity WOICE Tool.
Optimizing health worker roles for maternal and newborn health
An interactive tool aiming to rationalize the distribution of tasks and responsibilities among cadres of health workers in maternal and newborn health.
Maternal Mortality Rate Country Progress Calculator
This tool enables users to calculate what Annual Rate of Reduction (ARR) is needed in any given country to reach the 2030 Sustainable Development Goal for maternal mortality.
Global Maternal and Neonatal Sepsis Initiative
A website dedicated to empowering healthcare providers to suspect, treat and prevent sepsis in women and newborns.
WHO Concise Guide to Implementing and Scaling up FP Service Improvements
The guide summarizes learning from various scale up approaches and tools into one interactive online guide. Links to the original resources provide users an easy way to access reference materials while at the same time facilitating use of the guide in an interactive format.
Postpartum Family Planning Compendium
The tool provides tailored recommendations for postpartum contraceptive methods based on information entered about a woman’s medical condition and other characteristics.
Medical Eligibility Criteria Wheel
This is an animated version of the Medical Eligibility Criteria wheel for starting use of contraceptive methods, based on Medical Eligibility Criteria for Contraceptive Use, 5th edition.
Abortion care guideline
The objective of this guideline is to present the complete set of all WHO recommendations and best practice statements relating to abortion. While legal, regulatory, policy and service-delivery contexts may vary from country to country, the recommendations and best practices described in this document aim to enable evidence-based decision-making with respect to quality abortion care. This guideline updates and replaces the recommendations in all previous WHO guidelines on abortion care.
Global Abortion Policies Database
The Global Abortion Policies Database is designed to further strengthen global and national efforts to realize access to safe abortion by producing an interactive open-access database and repository of current abortion laws, policies, and national standards and guidelines.
Sexual and reproductive health and rights and HIV linkages toolkit
This simple-to use toolkit will guide you to the most recent, relevant and important SRHR and HIV linkages resources to meet your needs.
SHRH and HIV linkages index
The Index combines 30 indicators to assess progress made in 60 countries towards achieving a fully linked SRHR and HIV response.
Masculinities and SRHR: An evidence and gap map
Engaging men and addressing masculinities is identified as an important strategy to promote SRHR and gender equality. A systematic review was registered with the Campbell collaboration with the aim of identifying the state of evidence on interventions that engage men and address masculinities to improve SRHR outcomes and to assess the extent to which and the quality of those interventions that explicitly challenge harmful masculine norms and unequal gender-power relations. On this website you can explore the evidence and gap-map of studies on interventions engaging men and addressing masculinities by type of sexual and reproductive health outcomes and by country settings based on the World Bank income categories.
