Inter-Agency Reproductive Health Kits - 6th Edition Launch


This 6th edition revision of the IARH kits, based on 2019 clinical updates, is significant both in relation to clinical practice and in relation to structure. Based on feedback from country, regional, and headquarters UNFPA personnel, IAWG users of the kits, and other humanitarian health agencies, this revision not only addresses clinical gaps in care but works to address logistics bottlenecks experienced at the national level.
