COVID-19:
RESPONDING TO THE PANDEMIC

As a company dedicated to the health and wellbeing of underserved people globally, we are deeply concerned about the effects of COVID-19 on the communities we serve. While COVID-19 spreads rapidly, we continue providing our partners with critical services as well as responding to the growing crisis. We are supporting partners in pivoting to enable programme continuity, while also developing new ways of supporting preparedness and response efforts across the globe.

Scope is actively contributing to the Inter-agency Working Group of Reproductive Health in Crises. We are researching and advocating for improved COVID-19 services for vulnerable populations, as well as designing rapid, remote means to co-create emergency responses, facility improvements, and community mobilisation efforts.

GloBelly

Platform for mothers to tackle loneliness during pregnancy.
Scope's Social Mission Fund
Global
2017

Our 2017 social mission project GloBelly piloted a new woman-to-woman messenger service that pairs moms-to-be from different countries. 

GloBelly was born out of a simple idea: pregnancy can be an isolating time for many women all over the world. Many health services provide women with support in their physical needs, but pregnancy is often also a time of emotional upheaval. Speaking to another woman going through the same experience can be both enjoyable and reassuring.  GloBelly provides women from different environments with a space to chat, share stories and support each other.

Free to use, GloBelly is a place to hear someone else’s experience of pregnancy and share your own. It gives women from different settings the opportunity to connect with a fellow mom-to-be, grow together on their pregnancy journey and make a friendship that could last long after leaving the delivery room. 

Globelly was a quick pilot funded by Scope’s Social Mission Fund. We worked with local partners in Nigeria, India, Uganda and Finland to recruit a test group of women who were matched to each other. 

The Finnish news broadcaster YLE wrote an article on a woman’s experience of taking part in GloBelly, which you can find here (in Finnish).
