Sub-Working Group on Adolescent Sexual and Reproductive Health

Addressing the unique sexual and reproductive health needs of adolescents in humanitarian settings.


The Adolescent Sexual and Reproductive Health (ASRH) Sub-Working Group is a dedicated group of IAWG members who set the priorities and objectives of research, implementation, and best practices for adolescent sexual and reproductive health in humanitarian settings.

Priority Objectives

  1. Increase programs that address adolescent sexual and reproductive health (ASRH) in humanitarian settings by advocating ASRH activities be included across all sub-working groups' and partner's programming and when working with development actors and donors.
  2. Engage adolescents with Inter-Agency Working Group (IAWG) on Reproductive Health in Crises and partner agencies' programming to build their capacity to develop and implement programs. Work with adolescents to co-design, collaborate, and partner on adolescent-inclusion in advocacy, programming, research, and monitoring and evaluation.
  3. Build IAWG and partner agency capacity on ASRH by developing master trainers for ASRH and sharing upcoming trainings, existing tools, and best practices.
