    Reproductive Health Assessment in the Eastern Border Region of Burma

    Preliminary Findings

    Community Partners International (CPI), the Women’s Refugee Commission (WRC), faculty of the Harvard Humanitarian Initiative (HHI) and community health organizations undertook an assessment in March 2015 on how to improve community-based sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services given the changing political situation in Burma/Myanmar. The study sought to: identify key problems related to access to SRH services among rural border communities; assess perceived quality and consistency of existing SRH services; and examine the successes of the Mobile Obstetric Maternal Health Workers (MOM) Project and identify areas for improvement.

    A Case Study

    In 2012, the Women’s Refugee Commission (WRC) and Save the Children undertook a year-long, global exercise to map existing adolescent sexual and reproductive health (ASRH) programs that have been implemented since 2009 in humanitarian settings and to document good practices. To operationalize the learning from the ASRH study, the WRC and Save the Children embarked on a pilot project in Goma, Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). The project aimed to improve adolescent (10-19 years) knowledge, attitudes and behaviors around select sexual and reproductive health (SRH) issues. This report covers finding and lessons learned.

    An Evaluation of the Minimum Initial Service Package (MISP)

    Despite the steady influx of refugees into Jordan that has strained the resource capacity of this humanitarian emergency response, the agencies that provide RH services have been able to implement the MISP for the most part, although there is need for some improvement. In this setting, the study team found some challenges, such as balancing the increasing demands for services while maintaining quality and managing information flow among multiple stakeholders.
