Approaching Implementation of Respectful Maternity Care in Humanitarian Settings written by the IAWG Maternal and Newborn Health Sub-Working Group outlines interventions implemented in stable settings that maternal and newborn health (MNH) providers and program managers in crisis-affected settings have identified as promising strategies for humanitarian settings. While Respectful Maternity Care (RMC) is being incorporated in some humanitarian and fragile settings, more evidence around the implementation and effectiveness of these interventions for diverse populations including host communities, refugees, internally displaced persons, young mothers, and other vulnerable groups is needed. This brief is to be used as a tool to improve and promote RMC in fragile and conflict-affected settings.
