HIV prevention and treatment are key components of a comprehensive SRH service package. Unfortunately, in humanitarian contexts worldwide, HIV services are historically under-prioritized, often at the expense of already marginalized populations. Join us for a webinar to begin understanding some of the ways the humanitarian community can integrate HIV prevention and treatment services into existing SRH services, especially those supporting marginalized populations. This panel will feature speakers from Bangladesh, Tanzania, and Uganda, and include discussions on the health and protection needs of refugees involved in selling sex, the outcomes of a prevention of mother to child transmission intervention in a post-emergency refugee context, partner testing in a refugee setting, and adolescent SRH stigma and HIV testing among urban and displaced youth.

Sexual and Gender-Based Violence (SGBV) is a global pandemic further exacerbated in humanitarian settings. Promoting sexual and reproductive rights as well as access to sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services is critical to prevent and respond to gender-based violence (GBV) and the negative sexual and reproductive health effects of SGBV are well known. Attending to the physical and mental health needs of survivors is therefore an essential activity. In this panel speakers from Colombia, Malaysia, Uganda, and Ukraine shared their experiences serving survivors. The session discusses of factors among GBV survivors seeking psychosocial services; access to post-sexual violence services by survivors with diverse sexual orientation and gender identity and expression (SOGIE); a case management approach linking survivors cash, protection, and psychosocial support; and partnership with government to support the delivery of SRH and GBV services to refugees and host populations in refugee settlement areas.
