In order to sustain programs, staff and organizations must be able to effectively communicate their impact to stakeholder, including internal leadership, partners, and donors, and make the case for further investment.

Over the past decade, the Reproductive Health in Emergencies Initiative has worked to make the case, internally and externally, that family planning and reproductive health services are necessary components of humanitarian responses. By raising awareness through internal campaigns, generating buy-in from leadership, and identifying funding opportunities, we have been able to integrate reproductive health services into all of our large-scale humanitarian responses, including in Bangladesh, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Syria and Yemen.

The resources in this section are curated for communicators and fundraisers and are organized into the following categories:

___________
