This document is a manual for the effective use of the Inter-agency reproductive health kits in crisis situations. It provides information on use, contents and ordering procedures for a set of kits as of January 2011. The reproductive kit comprises 12 " sub kits" for use at different health care levels. They are designed e.g. to provide contraceptives, to treat sexually transmitted diseases, to ensure a clean and safe delivery or to manage the consequences of rape. Since the development of the Inter-agency emergency reproductive health kits in 1996, these kits have been updated regularly.
