SPRINT: Sexual and reproductive health in crisis and post-crisis situations

sprint IPPF

The SPRINT Initiative provides one of the most important aspects of humanitarian assistance that is often forgotten when disaster and conflicts strike. Ensuring access to essential life-saving SRH services for women, men and children in times of crises, a time when services are most needed yet are not prioritised or recognised by key humanitarian responders, SPRINT delivers practical solutions for girls and women, trains humanitarian workers to deal with pregnancy, childbirth, reproductive health and the aftermath of rape and violence.

Besides working to ensure emergency humanitarian programs in the field respond to such needs, SPRINT engages in political processes, working towards raising awareness, strengthening coordination, and building capacities to provide SRH services in crises. Saving lives is the core of the SPRINT Initiative. SPRINT Initiative is funded by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) under Australian Government and managed by International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF).
