MISP Considerations Checklist for Implementation During COVID-19


This tool highlights the considerations for adapting the Minimum Initial Service Package (MISP) for Sexual and Reproductive Health (SRH) activities during the preparedness and response phases of the COVID-19 pandemic. It is meant to serve as a companion document to the IAWG programmatic guidance for SRH in humanitarian and fragile settings during COVID-19.

Users of this document should carefully consider the context, stage, and progression of the pandemic. It is important to recognize that the COVID-19 situation will be a bi-directional process, moving in different directions between epidemic phases (rather than in one direction). Therefore, program implementers must be ready to constantly monitor, adjust, move forward, and quickly reverse processes depending on the disease transmission patterns, and how they change as a result of the shifts in government implemented measures. However, it is important to remember that SRH services at the facility level should remain accessible to the greatest extent possible.

This should be complemented by community-based and/or remote service delivery options including options for self-care, where feasible, particularly in situations where access to facilities will not be possible.

The tool is available as both an interactive Excel document in English and Spanish and a printable PDF checklist.
