Emergency Phase

Current humanitarian standards9 include a Minimum Initial Services Package (MISP) of reproductive health activities to be provided in emergencies.10,11 These activities are designed to reduce reproductive health morbidity and mortality. MISP can be implemented without a site-specific assessment. MISP activities to reduce the transmission of HIV include:

• identifying an individual and organization responsible for ensuring that the MISP is implemented;

• ensuring a safe blood supply;12

• implementing universal precautions;13,14

• guaranteeing the availability of free condoms;

• addressing the prevention and management of sexual violence;15,16 and

• planning for comprehensive reproductive health services,17 including a site-specific HIV/AIDS situation analysis.
