Humanitarian Forum: Sexual and Reproductive Health in Developing and Disaster Torn Countries

Sexual and Reproductive Healthcare (SRH) in a crises context remains ever-relevant due to natural disasters, famine, disease and other ongoing problems across the globe.

The French Consulate General in Atlanta and Emory University’s Rollins School of Public Health will host this one-day forum uniting French and American NGOs and health experts.

Participants will discuss challenges and opportunities associated with SRH. Some of the organizations sharing their perspectives will be: Médcins du Monde, CARE, Handicap International, the Atlanta Assylum Network and the United Nations Population Fund, among others.

Over the course of three panel discussions the experts will touch on SRH in family planning, the emergency sector and continuum of care within emergency response. They will also explore the connection between refugee and displaced persons’ experiences with SRH abroad and at home in the United States. The three panel discussions are as follows:

  • 1: SRH global challenges and opportunities
  • 2: Policy and SRH in humanitarian settings
  • 3: Refugee resettlement, in the U.S. and France

A reception will follow at 6:00 p.m.
