Global Health Activities
Reproductive Health Access, Information and Services in Emergencies (RAISE) Initiative: Afghanistan, Chad, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Myanmar, Pakistan, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan, Uganda, Yemen: The RAISE Initiative works with partners and international consortia to advance the conditions needed to make SRH services in emergencies a basic standard of care. RAISE facilitates technical support, research, documentation, and use and dissemination of findings. RAISE also participates in advocacy efforts for improved SRHR. We focus in particular on components of SRHR that remain too often unaddressed: contraception, comprehensive abortion care and adolescent SRH.
