Excerpt
FOREWORD Reproductive health is a right ; and like all other human rights it applies to refugees and persons living in refugee-like conditions. To exercise this right, populations caught up in conflict and living in emergency situations must have an enabling environment and access to complete reproductive health information and services so they can make free and informed choices. They also must feel comfortable and secure in discussing their most private concerns with those who seek to help them. Quality reproductive health services must be based on refugees’, particularly women refugees’, needs. They must also respect refugees’ various religious and ethical values and cultural backgrounds while conforming to universally recognised international human rights standards. Therefore, full information on options, and access to reproductive health services should be provided, leaving the decision to the individual. Reproductive health care covers a wide range of services. These are defined as follows in the Programme of Action of the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) held in Cairo, Egypt, in September 1994: family-planning counselling, information, education, communication and services; education and services for prenatal care, safe delivery and post-natal care, and infant and women’s health care; prevention and appropriate treatment of infertility; prevention of abortion and the management of the consequences of abortion; treatment of reproductive tract infections, sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV/AIDS; breast cancer and cancers of the reproductive system, and other reproductive health conditions; and active discouragement of harmful traditional practices, such as female genital mutilation.
