2 May 2016 -- A new commentary highlights the urgent need to answer to the specific sexual and reproductive health needs of girls and women living in emergency situations. Published in the May 2016 issue of the WHO Bulletin, which focuses on the implementation of the Global Strategy for Women's, Children's and Adolescents' health, the commentary also underlines the opportunities for political commitment at the upcoming World Humanitarian Summit.
Sexual and reproductive health care should be available in emergency situations and be based on the needs and expressed demands of refugees, particularly women, with full respect for the various religious and ethical values and cultural backgrounds of the refugees while also conforming with universally recognised international human rights.
