Minimum Initial Service Package (MISP) Process Evaluation Tools (2017)


To facilitate a standardized approach to assessing the Minimum Initial Service Package (MISP) on Sexual and Reproductive Health (SRH), the Women’s Refugee Commission led a three-year, inter-agency initiative to develop comprehensive tools for undertaking a MISP assessment ideally within the first three months following the onset of a humanitarian emergency.

The initiative was comprised of representatives from Boston University School of Public Health, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Johns Hopkins University, the United Nations Population Fund and the Women’s Refugee Commission with support from IPPF’s Sexual and Reproductive Health Programme in Crisis and Post-Crisis Situations (SPRINT) Initiative.
