DRC-based Organization Advances SRH in Rural Communities

Erin Worden, Inter-Agency Working Group (IAWG)

Infirmiers en Action dans le Milieu Rural (IAMR), which translates to Nurses in Action in Rural Areas, works to serve the sexual and reproductive health (SRH) needs in rural, displaced communities in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), a region with ongoing conflict and political instability. IAMR’s CEO, Benson Ahmed Hussein, said that the small community-based organization offers a range of SRH services, from contraceptive counseling to delivery kit provisions in local maternity wards. IAMR is committed to working with and empowering particularly marginalized communities, including adolescents, people who engage with transactional sex, and people who have experienced unsafe abortions.
