The components of reproductive health described in the Field Manual are: Minimum Initial Service Package, Safe Motherhood, Sexual Violence, Sexually Transmitted Diseases, including HIV/AIDS, Family Planning, Other Reproductive Health Concerns, Reproductive Health of Young People.
Whilst much of the content of the manual is still valid today, significant advances in reproductive health clinical standards/guidelines have been made, and some of the information in the manual is out of date.An extensive revision of the manual has been undertaken. However, there are several critical, evidence-based updates that the Interagency Working Group felt were important to share in advance of the revision.The Corrigendum provides these updates in a simplified and focused document.The updates reflect the current state of the art and are subject to change—please check the website
The first reproductive health kits were developed by Marie Stopes International in 1992, specifically for use during the Bosnian crisis, when thousands of women were sexually abused and there was an urgent need for appropriate medical equipment. The Sexuality and Family Planning unit of WHO’s Regional Office for Europe then reviewed and updated these kits for a second phase in Bosnia.This booklet provides information on their contents, use and ordering procedures as of January 2008.
This is a mapping system to see which health resources are available for specific types of care.
