Addressing reproductive health in crisis situations is essential for the realisation of the Programme of Action of the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD Cairo, 1994), where the needs of populations surviving crises were stated: “All migrants, refugees, asylum seekers and displaced persons should receive basic education and health services.
CERAH offers a one-week intensive course on Sexual and Reproductive Health in Emergencies. This course was developed jointly with the Norwegian Refugee Council’s standby roster NORCAP and UNFPA.
