Troubling news in the US and around the world is filled with reports of refugees and displaced people – from young refugees fleeing violence and crossing into the US, to the many other challenging situations around the world. I had never really thought that through what that means from a reproductive health perspective until I read The Reproductive Health Needs of Refugees and Displaced People: An Opening for Renewed U.S. Leadership, a report of the Guttmacher Policy Review.
As you read the news and follow the information, perhaps this report will provide a little bit of additional perspective, about ways that refugees experiencing peril may best have their health needs addressed, particularly reproductive health needs.
Hoping for a day when all people feel safe,
