Therefore, now would be the time for the United States to reassert its leadership role, to ensure that sexual and reproductive health care is a core component of its humanitarian response for people living in emergency situations. And in 2006, Columbia University’s Heilbrunn Department of Population and Family Health in the Mailman School of Public Health and Marie Stopes International launched a major new initiative— Reproductive Health Access, Information and Services in Emergencies RAISE —aimed specifically at “bring together all the tools needed to make comprehensive reproductive health care in emergencies a basic standard of care.” On the ground, reproductive health services in stable refugee settings are now fairly well-established and are generally being provided consistent with the field manual, especially basic family planning, antenatal and obstetric care.

The question is neither academic nor romantic: while many donors, including the Hewlett Foundation, often support the most cost-effective and evidence-based approaches first through pilot tests and eventually “at scale,” we’ve had a hunch that to reach the next wave of contraceptive users – particularly young women, rural women and poor women in sub-Saharan Africa – donors, governments and service delivery organizations will have to think and do business differently. And so we went with our hunch that seeking out new partnerships with experts outside the field of reproductive health and introducing an approach like “ design thinking ”, or human-centered design, into this mature field had the potential to solve some persistent challenges. Challenges such as how to reach populations that do not currently use contraception because of social stigma, fear of side effects and infertility, lack of information; empower young people to take control of their reproductive health; and ...

Commentary : Law and Policy United States Conference of Catholic Bishops Influential in Passage of Let Women Die Act 2011. Catholics today expressed anger about the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ role in promoting support for the so-called “Protect Life Act” HR 358, a bill that will endanger women’s lives across the US with an extreme ban on abortion coverage while expanding permission for health professionals to refuse to provide reproductive healthcare services, even in life-threatening situations. The bishops, having failed to convince the majority of Catholics on issues related to reproductive health and sexuality, are attempting to use Congress to impose their personal beliefs on all Americans. The bishops should stop forcing their personal beliefs on others and allow women and their doctors to make healthcare decisions. Even more concerning, HR 358 will also place many women who need reproductive healthcare in dangerous, ...

Male Reproductive Health Disorders and the Potential Role of Exposure to Environmental Chemicals. Many everyday chemicals in the environment or in consumer products have the potential to block the action of testosterone, and a baby’s exposure to this mixture of chemicals may undermine this process and harm future male reproductive health.

Analysis : Maternity and Birthing Stress Kills: Economic Insecurity and Black Women’s Maternal Health Outcomes. by Elizabeth Dawes Gay March 19, 2014 - 1:57 pm. Tweet. When we hear “stress kills,” we often imagine a wealthy business executive dying of a heart attack in their early 50s because they put in too many long nights at the office. But stress also kills pregnant Black women and their babies in a more surreptitious way. Young woman with a headache via Shutterstock. This piece is published in collaboration with Echoing Ida, a Strong Families project. Fifty years ago, President Lyndon B. Johnson announced t he War on Poverty, a set of legislation and programs intended to respond to the needs of people living in poverty.

*  First Things First: Revised: THE TRUTH AND HALF-TRUTHS ABOUT REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH
Part I--- INTRODUCTION Several bills have been filed in the two Houses of the Philippine Congress, proposing a law on reproductive health. ANTI-REPRODUCTION BILLS The bills are, strictly speaking, anti-reproduction bills. CONTRACEPTION FIRST, ABORTION NEXT The proposed anti-reproduction legislation constitutes the first step. Even the House substitute bill, which consolidates four component bills into one after only one public hearing, is attributed to this group, instead of having been put together by the Joint Committees on Health and on Population and Family Relations, to which the original bills had been referred, or by a Technical Working Group appointed by the same committees, as is the usual practice. But just as the Lord himself will not use force to stop anyone from stealing in office, the Church will not strongarm anyone into following its teaching on reproductive health. Now, if Church law has not prevented Catholic women from contracepting, and no civil statute ...

(5/190) Healthy fish consumption and reduced mercury exposure: counseling women in their reproductive years.

OBJECTIVE: To provide family physicians with a practical, evidence-based approach to counseling women about healthy fish eating. SOURCES OF INFORMATION: MEDLINE was searched for articles published between 1999 and 2008. Most studies described in this article provide level II or III evidence. MAIN MESSAGE: Fish is an important component of a healthy diet for women in their reproductive years owing to the beneficial effects of omega-3 fatty acids on the neurologic development of the fetus. However, some fish species contain considerable methylmercury, which crosses the placenta and has harmful effects on neurobehavioural development. As many jurisdictions have issued fish consumption advisories, which can be confusing, women would benefit from individualized assistance from a trusted source, their family physicians, to clarify the risks and benefits of eating fish. CONCLUSION: We recommend that family physicians counsel women in their reproductive years about healthy choices regarding fish in their diet, and provide appropriate resources.  (+info)
