    The Women's Refugee Commission works to improve the lives and protect the rights of women, children and youth displaced by conflict and crisis. We research their needs, identify solutions and advocate for programs and policies to strengthen their resilience and drive change in humanitarian practice.

    Our vision is a world in which refugee and internally displaced women, children and youth:

    • are safe, healthy and self-reliant;
    • have their human rights respected and protected; and
    • inform and drive their own solutions and development

    The Women's Refugee Commission’s sexual and reproductive health program is its most longstanding program. The Women’s Refugee Commission advocates for humanitarian agencies to:

    • Expand access to family planning
    • Improve the quality and availability of critical maternal health and newborn services
    • Prevent and treat sexually transmitted infections and HIV
    • Meet the sexual and reproductive health needs of adolescents
    • Prevent and address gender-based violence

    We work on innovative programming to improve the sexual and reproductive health of all persons affected by crises. Our initiatives encompass adolescent sexual and reproductive health, disaster risk reduction and emergency preparedness, community empowerment, alternative service delivery models, child marriage and emergency response. We identify critical gaps in sexual and reproductive health and make recommendations on solutions to better meet the needs of women and girls specifically.

    The Women's Refugee Commission is committed to advocating for the inclusion of crisis-affected women, men and children in global development and humanitarian agendas. Below, please find details on the Women's Refugee Commission-sponsored concurrent sessions at Women Deliver, as well as more information about the 14th Annual Meeting of the Inter-Agency Working Group (IAWG) on Reproductive Health in Crises, directly following Women Deliver May 31 –June 1 at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre.
