    Adolescent Sexual and Reproductive Health Programs in Humanitarian Settings: An In-Depth Look at Family Planning Services

    The importance of sexual and reproductive health programs for displaced adolescents is receiving increased attention, however there is little documentation of programs that are successful in providing such services, including family planning. To address this gap, the Women’s Refugee Commission and Save the Children undertook a year-long exercise to map existing adolescent sexual and reproductive health (ASRH) programs that have been implemented since 2009 and document good practices.

    Incorporating Sexual and Reproductive Health Into Emergency Preparedness and Planning

    Women are disproportionately affected by disasters: 90 percent of those killed in the 1991 cyclone in Bangladesh and 80 percent of those killed in the 2004 tsunami were women and girls. For those who do survive, there are devastating, long-term effects on their sexual and reproductive health. In this new report, the Women’s Refugee Commission looks at activities to improve sexual and reproductive health and better prepare for disasters in Haiti, Uganda and South Sudan.

    Refocusing Family Planning in Refugee Settings

    Access to family planning services is a human right and neglecting their provision can have serious health consequences. This summary report is based on a multi-country baseline study to document knowledge of family planning, beliefs and practices of refugees, as well as the state of service provision in select refugee settings in Djibouti, Jordan, Kenya, Malaysia and Uganda. The goal of the baseline study was to support program planning and service delivery, and subsequently increase family planning uptake among women, men and adolescents.

    A Snapshot from the Field

    The Women's Commission for Refugee Women and Children saw firsthand the terrible difficulties that displaced Iraqi women and children face on a mission to Jordan in June 2007. We were presented with a picture of a refugee population that has limited or no access to health care, including prevention of and response to gender-based violence, safe delivery services, including emergency obstetric care, family planning and prevention and treatment of HIV/AIDS--the four areas of reproductive health care.

    "We Want Birth Control": Reproductive Health Findings in Northern Uganda

    The Women's Commission and the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) conducted a reproductive health (RH) assessment among the conflict-affected populations of northern Uganda in February 2007. Northern Uganda has been embroiled in a civil war for almost 20 years, resulting in the displacement of approximately 1.5 million people. The assessment team visited the districts of Kitgum and Pader and also visited a youth center and clinic in Gulu. In general, the findings revealed that although some basic services were in place, many were sorely lacking.
