28 October, 2021

Dear HIFA Forums Members,

With great pleasure, I would like to let you know that HIFA has developed and published a new Action Brief. This is an outcome of ongoing collaboration with the WHO COVID-19 Health Services Learning Hub (HLH).

The Action Brief is a second document developed by HIFA. The first one was published a few months ago and was based on findings from the 1st Thematic Discussion. You can access the brief here: https://hlh.who.int/ab-detail/findings-from-a-hifa-thematic-discussion (and PDF version here: https://hlh.who.int/docs/librariesprovider4/hlh---action-briefs/hlh-hifa... ).

The new Action Brief is a result of fruitful 2nd Thematic Discussion. How has COVID-19 affected delivery of EHS? HIFA 2nd Discussion is accessible on the HLH website: https://hlh.who.int/ab-detail/how-has-covid-19-affected-delivery-of-ehs-... (PDF here: https://hlh.who.int/docs/librariesprovider4/hlh---action-briefs/hifa-2nd... ). Learn more about impact of COVID-19 on essential health services in the following areas: Reproductive and Child Health, Mental Health, Surgery and Emergency Care, Non-communicable diseases.

Thank you for your interest in the work of HLH and HIFA. If you would like your initiative/project to be published as an Action Brief, you can submit your ideas here: https://extranet.who.int/dataformv3/index.php/813253?lang=en
