Partners to the Inter-agency Working Group (IAWG) on Reproductive Health in Crises
With funding from AusAID, the SPRINT (Sexual and Reproductive Health Programme in Crisis and Post-Crisis Situations in East South-East Asia Pacific) Initiative was developed after the ninth IAWG annual meeting in Sydney to improve access to reproductive health information and services for populations living in crisis and post-crisis situations in East South-East Asia and the Pacific. The objectives of the three-year initiative are to:
- increase the regional capacity of key stakeholders;
- strengthen the coordination of sexual and reproductive health response in crisis situations;
- raise awareness on SRH in crises at national and regional levels; 4) respond to SRH needs in crises in a timely fashion; and
- enhance access to SRH information and services for populations living in protracted post-crisis situations.
The Initiative is coordinated by the International Planned Parenthood Federation East, South East Asia and Oceania Region (IPPF ESEAOR), in collaboration with the Australian Reproductive Health Alliance (ARHA), the University of New South Wales (UNSW) and the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA).
