The Reproductive Health Kits have been designed to facilitate the provision of reproductive health services during the early phase of a crisis. They contain essential drugs, supplies and equipment to be used for a limited period of time and a specific number of people. Once basic reproductive health services have been established, the reproductive health coordinator should analyse the situation, assess the needs and re-order medicines, disposables and equipment based on consumption of these items, in order to ensure that the reproductive health programme can be sustained.
