IAWG members are addressing sexual and reproductive rights during COVID-19 humanitarian response. Read More>>

Minimum Initial Service Package (MISP) Resources

The minimum, life-saving sexual and reproductive health needs that humanitarians must address at onset of an emergency (within 48 hours wherever possible).


Providing comprehensive sexual and reproductive health (SRH) care to all members of a crisis-affected population is an overarching goal of the health sector. If financial, human, and material resources are available at the onset of an emergency, implementing the MISP should be the aim of the SRH response.

A list of IAWG led or co-branded resources was developed to support with MISP for SRH preparedness, response and recovery efforts. The majority of these resources were developed or updated to reflect the objectives and activities of the 2018 revised MISP, as detailed in the Inter-Agency Field Manual. This list notes in which language(s) each resource is available and any translations under development and can be downloaded below.

This resource aims to help colleagues identify MISP resources -- available and under development or revision -- that meet their programmatic needs. Further, it aims to facilitate with information sharing, including around existing translations and those in progress, to enhance coordination around resource development.
