Description: Because natural disasters tend to recur in the same places, the humanitarian community has an opportunity to work with the community before crisis strikes--helping to create plans and share knowledge to keep women and girls safe.
Since 2010, the Women's Refugee Commission has incorporated preparedness and planning for sexual and reproductive health needs in an emergency into our advocacy and in-country training activities.
For women and girls who survive these natural disasters, the immediate consequences of a disaster—displacement, sexual violence and exploitation, disruptions in health services and the loss of financial security within a family unit—can lead to devastating, long-term effects and consequences. These include school drop-out, early and forced marriage, trauma, extra labor and work, increased rates of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and HIV, unintended pregnancy and lack of skilled attendance at birth. Such experiences compromise a woman or young girl's ability to realize her own rights over the long term, and immediately place her at higher risk for reproductive health illnesses and related death.
