    BACKGROUND: Since 1989, the Women’s Refugee Commission has advocated vigorously for laws, policies and programs to improve the lives and protect the rights of refugee and displaced women, children and young people—bringing about lasting, measurable change.

    ABOUT THE REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH PROGRAM: The Reproductive Health (RH) Program promotes quality, comprehensive reproductive health care for refugee and displaced women, men and youth in the areas of maternal-newborn health, family planning, STI/HIV/AIDS and gender-based violence. The RH Program:

    • Participates in the seven-member Reproductive Health Response in Conflict (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.
    • Produces tools and field-friendly guides on the MISP, 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 reproductive health services, particularly for adolescents.
