Sexual and Reproductive Health in Humanitarian Settings
In the last 40 years, more and more people have been forced to migrate from their homes. There are more than 80 million people displaced worldwide, with 20 million of them displaced each year by climate-related disasters.
Pathfinder supports quality, far-reaching reproductive health care for those who have been displaced and their host communities. We strengthen health services so that they are better than they ever were before the crisis hit.
Rohingya Refugees in Cox’s Bazar
Funder: David and Lucile Packard Foundation
Over 1 million Rohingya refugees live in Cox’s Bazar refugee camp in southeastern Bangladesh. Pathfinder supports our local partner, Research Training and Management International, to provide critical sexual and reproductive health services to Rohingya refugees in Camp 22 of Cox’s Bazar.
Approximately 22,000 people are living in Camp 22/Unchiprang in Cox’s Bazar. Pathfinder’s work on sexual and reproductive health reaches 10,000 of them.
Transform: Primary Health Care
Pathfinder’s Transform: Primary Health Care program supports Ethiopia’s health system to offer high-quality reproductive health care to Ethiopians, including those in crises, specifically by supporting effective risk reduction, disaster preparedness, response, and recovery. Internally displaced people (IDP) receive integrated reproductive health care and other basic health services.
At IDP sites, Pathfinder screened 294,573 children and 109,396 pregnant mothers, treated 936,534 people, and vaccinated 1,525,090 for conditions such as measles, yellow fever, and pertussis, and outbreaks from communicable diseases such as acute watery diarrhea or cholera, scabies, and malaria.
