Women and child health in humanitarian setting


In the past, reproductive health (RH) was a sector that was rarely addressed during emergencies. As the trend has become for emergencies to evolve and become more protracted, it has become even more important to develop programming related to reproductive health. Many aspects of reproductive health in emergencies remain the same as those in non-emergency settings, however, other aspects must be considered such as trauma, family separation, poverty, and social instability that may affect their needs and risks. This course focuses on the priority reproductive health needs of the population and describes a logical approach to establishing reproductive health services in emergency situations.
