Incorporating Sexual and Reproductive Health into Disaster Risk Reduction in Crisis-Affected Pakistan
Disruptions and Adaptations: The Effects of COVID-19 on Contraceptive Services across the Humanitarian-Development Nexus
When a crisis strikes, the first responders are locals who are already present, familiar with local norms, fluent in local languages, and intimately acquainted with the community’s needs and human resources. The Women’s Refugee Commission works to build the resilience of communities to absorb future shocks caused by crises. We research and support community-based models of service delivery, focusing on often-marginalized populations, with the goal of transitioning from priority sexual and reproductive health services provided at the onset of a crisis to comprehensive sexual and reproductive health services as soon as possible.
