Advocating for Sexual and Reproductive Health Services in COVID-19 Response


COVID-19 threatens to disrupt the delivery of sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services in humanitarian and fragile settings. The Inter-Agency Working Group (IAWG) on Reproductive Health in Crisis urges governments, humanitarian actors, and the private sector to work together to incorporate women’s and girls’ access to essential and rights-fulfilling SRH services during the COVID-19 public health response. We have provided a suite of advocacy tools, including:

  • Full Advocacy Statement: a detailed set of policy recommendations extensively reviewed and validated by IAWG technical experts, policy specialists, and operational agencies working on the front-lines of the COVID-19 response.
  • Advocacy Summary: a brief summary of the seven policy recommendations.
  • Social Media Toolkit: graphics and copy for you and your organization's Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter profiles to amplify SRH needs in COVID-19 response.

Sexual and reproductive health services remain critical during COVID-19

IAWG members and partners are producing clinical and programmatic guidance, assessments, policy papers, and statements to ensure continued prioritization of sexual and reproductive health and rights throughout COVID-19 response in humanitarian settings.
