In this session, you’ll hear directly from those innovating to improve sexual and reproductive health outcomes for women, girls and marginalised populations across the humanitarian sector.

The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), the Geneva Centre of Humanitarian Studies, and Science Practice are conducting a research study, funded by Elrha, to explore how different humanitarian actors understand and characterise innovation and map current innovative practice within the sexual and reproductive health (SRH) in emergencies sector.  

In the second webinar in this series, we will present our preliminary mapping of SRH innovations in humanitarian settings and showcase examples of innovative practice across different contexts and locations. Featured innovations will include:  

  • Home-based safe abortion with remote management by midwives in the Middle East – Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF)  
  • Inclusion in action: Dignity kits for the transgender community in Kelaniya, Gampaha district, Sri Lanka – International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF)  
  • Point of care ultrasound training with healthcare providers in Yemen – Bridge to Health Medical and Dental USA & MedGlobal  

Join us to learn more about where, how, and why innovation is taking place and add your innovation into the conversation!
