More than 68.5 million people are currently displaced by conflict or crises. Approximately 25 percent of them are women and adolescent girls of reproductive age. Humanitarian crises result in enormous risks to women and girls, including rape, assault, intimate partner violence, early and forced marriage, and trafficking. Access to sexual and reproductive health services is a critical and life-saving component of humanitarian response, yet the full range of these services may be unavailable or severely limited. This lecture will describe steps the international community has taken over the past 30 years to protect displaced women and girls, including improved access to reproductive health from the early days of an emergency, and will examine key strategies for moving forward.Organized in partnership with:
