This Toolkit is intended to guide humanitarian programme managers and healthcare providers to ensure that sexual and reproductive health interventions put into place both during and after a crisis are responsive to the unique needs of adolescents.

It provides user-friendly tools for assessing the impact of a crisis on adolescents, implementing an adolescent-friendly Minimum Initial Service Package , and ensuring that adolescents can participate in the development and implementation of humanitarian programmes. Other tools are specifically designed for healthcare providers to help them be more effective in providing and tracking services for adolescents at the clinic and community levels.

The Toolkit was created by Save the Children and UNFPA, under the guidance of a Technical Advisory Group comprised of UNICEF, UNHCR, Women’s Refugee Commission, IRC, RAISE, Pathfinder International, JSI, CDC and Columbia University.

It is a companion to the Inter-Agency Field Manual on Reproductive Health in Humanitarian Settings.
