About the event

Save the date for the 2020 Inter-Agency Working Group (IAWG) on Reproductive Health in Crises’ meeting in Thailand! Check back soon for more details including tentative agenda, location, FAQ, visa, and more.

This year’s theme, Bridging the Divide: Operationalizing Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights in the Nexus, asks presenters to share findings and lessons learned from working on SRHR at the intersections of the humanitarian, development and peace sectors. The meeting aims to progress beyond rhetoric around the need for interlinkages across sectors in order to inform actionable next steps for the IAWG community.

Meeting Themes


The meeting has five sub-themes: localization, rights and equity, financing, cross-sectoral collaboration, and sustainability. Learn more about the sub-themes.
