Background

Recent efforts to control the spread of COVID-19 has limited the scope of access to SRH and contraception, information and services, especially amongst women and young people. While sexual activity does not cease with the COVID-19 pandemic, limited access to the FP services may result in an increase in unintended pregnancies. Thus, it is crucial to implement measures to ensure access to SRH and quality contraceptive services under health crises such as COVID-19. To ensure continuity of SRH and contraceptive services and uninterrupted safe service delivery, under given circumstance of COVID-19, capacity building of the providers on standard protocols to prevent and control spread of COVID-19 is needed on urgent basis. Limitation on movement and physical contact as a preventative measure of COVID-19 has made it challenging to access physical the learning opportunities for the providers.

The objective of this initiative is to develop and design a Virtual Learning System (VLS) and web-based platform to enable learner/ provider to communicate effectively and acquire and share knowledge and information that is needed to improve and/ or continue their practices. VLS enables the individual to learn as per their needs, in a flexible manner. Virtual learning through E-modules will be adaptable to work with a training approach and would be available for learners from their desktop anytime 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. There is no need to schedule time away from daily activities and/or incur travel expenses.
