The Crisis of Reproductive Care in Humanitarian Settings | from Ipas
Description: Hauwa Shekarau, Ipas Nigeria Country Director, says millions of women and girls living in refugee camps and other crisis settings often have little or no access to contraception, safe abortion care and other reproductive health services – even though they are at heightened risk of unwanted pregnancy as the result of exploitation, sexual violence and transactional sex. The technical ability to provide this care exists. She calls on governments to summon the political will to solve this crisis.

When Abortion Is a Crime: Rwanda | from Ipas
Description: This short video looks at abortion in Rwanda, where hundreds of women are unjustly harassed, arrested, prosecuted and imprisoned each year for illegal abortions. Even though the abortion law was reformed in 2012, legal barriers and cultural and religious stigma make it nearly impossible for women to get a safe, legal abortion. The video includes interviews with women, health advocates and others, and outlines steps the Rwandan government can take to address this ongoing human rights violation. Related materials from Ipas include the 2015 report, When Abortion Is a Crime: Rwanda (http://www.ipas.org/en/Resources/Ipas%20Publications/When-abortion-is-a-crime--Rwanda.aspx) and an accompanying factsheet.
