4.4 Sexual and reproductive health (including gender-based violence)

4.4.5 Summary

This review found only fifteen studies that focused on SRH in humanitarian settings, and none that explicitly focused on GBV. Only two of the fifteen studies addressed STIs/HIV, with the majority of research focusing on overall maternal and child health. As more than half of these studies were graded moderate to low quality, further high quality studies are needed on SRH interventions in these settings and populations. This literature review has highlighted the absence of evidence on any intervention against GBV in these settings or populations – this enormous gap should be addressed in future intervention research. There is substantial evidence on the effectiveness of sexual and reproductive health interventions and gender-based violence in stable and development contexts as indicated by past reviews (Brace et al., 2004, Hayman et al., 2011; Mason-Jones et al. 2012; Dhana et al. 2014) but more research is required specifically in humantiarian crises contexts.
