    The Sexual and Reproductive Health (SRH) Program promotes quality, comprehensive reproductive health care for crisis-affected women, men and youth in the areas of maternal-newborn health, family planning, STI/HIV/AIDS and gender-based violence. The SRH Program:

    • Participates in the seven-member Reproductive Health Response in Crises (RHRC) Consortium and the Inter-agency Working Group (IAWG) on Reproductive Health in Crises.
    • Advocates for the Minimum Initial Service Package (MISP) for Reproductive Health to be implemented in the earliest days of an emergency, and integrated into emergency preparedness plans.
    • Produces tools and field-friendly guides on the MISP, maternal health, family planning, HIV/AIDS, STIs, gender-based violence, emergency contraception and emergency obstetric care for humanitarian workers to better implement reproductive health activities in emergency settings.
    • Provides grants and technical assistance to local nongovernmental organizations in Thailand to expand and strengthen sexual reproductive health services, particularly for adolescents.
    • Advocates for the international community to undertake a comprehensive multi-sectoral approach which protect women and girls from sexual violence and traditional practices in displaced settings.
