The Inter-Agency Field Manual on Reproductive Health in Humanitarian Settings (IAFM) outlines a set of minimum reproductive health interventions to be put in place at the outset of a humanitarian crisis known as the Minimum Initial Service Package (MISP). The manual is based on guidelines issued by normative bodies, particularly those of the World Health Organization, the 2018 IAFM incorporates specific evidence from, or examples about, the application and adaptation of global Sexual Reproductive Health (SRH) or human rights standards in humanitarian settings, beyond refugee situations, extending its use into diverse crises, including conflict zones and natural disasters.
