Redressing Gendered Health Inequalities of Displaced Women and Girls

University of Southampton


Women and girls are especially vulnerable to risks exacerbated by situations of displacement. These issues have been overlooked in Central and South American contexts for too long. Our research will address their specific sexual and reproductive health needs and provide policymakers in Central and South America with new data and recommendations that will hopefully improve capacity and help them respond effectively to the health needs of this vulnerable group of people.
