Clinical Outreach Refresher Trainings (S-CORTs) Operational Considerations and Programmatic Guidance


This programmatic guidance on Sexual and Reproductive Health (SRH) Clinical Outreach Refresher Trainings (S-CORTs) is intended for SRH trainers, program managers, and coordinators working in humanitarian settings. The considerations and recommendations presented are based on findings from qualitative research conducted during the pilot phase of these trainings. This research aimed to assess the contents of the modules from a programmatic standpoint, and determine the operational enablers and barriers related to the implementation of two S-CORTs: one on the clinical management of survivors of sexual violence and the other on manual vacuum aspiration.

The Inter-agency Working Group on Reproductive Health in Crises Training Partnership Initiative (IAWG-TPI) partnered with Institut Africain de Santé Publique and the Ministry of Health in Burkina Faso; the Family Planning Association of Nepal and a research consultant in Nepal; and the Juba College of Nursing and Midwifery and International Medical Corps in South Sudan to design, pilot, and evaluate the roll-out of the S-CORT modules.
