Localization recognizes the importance of local actors in leading and designing solutions that impact their own communities. For SRH actors working in humanitarian settings, localization is critical to ensuring emergency preparedness and response efforts are responsive, innovative and levering the expertise and voices of women, girls and gender nonconforming people most affected by crises.


This panel will share findings from:

  1. A program partnering with the government of Egypt to make their national public health system more resilient and receptive to Syrian refugees
  2. A successful model for engaging women and adolescents with disabilities in SRHR programming in Burundi
  3. A collaboration with five women-focused civil society organizations in Lebanon aimed at providing them with access to the platforms, people, and resources needed to sustain and expand their work
