Delivering Reproductive Health When She Needs It Most

One in four people in need of humanitarian assistance is a woman or girl of reproductive age (15–49 years). Their health needs don’t disappear in a conflict or natural disaster — in fact, they grow greater and more urgent in humanitarian settings where trained health workers are scarce, and health facilities are damaged or destroyed.

To address the reproductive health needs of women in humanitarian settings, Save the Children and other humanitarian actors implement the Minimum Initial Service Package (MISP) for Reproductive Health.
