The Reproductive Health Response in Crises Consortium applauds current relief efforts in Haiti while calling on humanitarian actors to provide lifesaving reproductive health services for women displaced by the earthquake.
The RHRC Consortium calls on humanitarian actors to meet the needs of women and girls—including the 63,000 pregnant women in Port au Prince. (Other organizations have put the estimate lower at 37,000.) The RHRC estimates that 7,000 will deliver in the coming month.
The statement includes calls to action on issues of safe delivery, sexual violence and exploitation, HIV/AIDS, and family planning.
