Iraqi Refugee Women and Youth in Jordan: Reproductive Health Findings


A Snapshot from the Field

The Women's Commission for Refugee Women and Children saw firsthand the terrible difficulties that displaced Iraqi women and children face on a mission to Jordan in June 2007. We were presented with a picture of a refugee population that has limited or no access to health care, including prevention of and response to gender-based violence, safe delivery services, including emergency obstetric care, family planning and prevention and treatment of HIV/AIDS–the four areas of reproductive health care.
