Reproductive Health Access, Information and Services in Emergencies (RAISE) Initiative: The Reproductive Health Access, Information and Services in Emergencies (RAISE) Initiative is catalyzing change in how reproductive health (RH) is addressed in emergencies. Access to sexual and reproductive health care is a basic human right. Yet integrated and fully comprehensive reproductive health services are not the norm in most emergency settings. People are displaced from their homes for many reasons, and an overwhelming number of preventable deaths and illnesses related to reproductive health affect populations in crisis. The people within these affected communities require reproductive health care. Our sense of global responsibility demands that we address their urgent need.
