Minimum Initial Service Package for Sexual and Reproductive Health: Distance Learning Module (2019 Revision)

Women and girls in humanitarian emergencies suffer disproportionately from life-threatening conditions, including those related to sexual and reproductive health (SRH). Neglecting SRH needs in humanitarian settings has serious consequences, including preventable maternal and newborn morbidity (illness) and mortality; preventable consequences of unintended pregnancy, such as unsafe abortion; and preventable cases of sexual violence and their consequences. The Minimum Initial Service Package (MISP) for SRH is a set of lifesaving priority activities to be implemented from the onset of a crisis. The Minimum Initial Service Package (MISP) for Sexual and Reproductive Health (SRH) distance learning module aims to increase humanitarian actors’ and partners’ knowledge of these priority SRH services. It gives them the information and tools they need to implement the MISP activities and meet its objectives.
