Although HIV infection rates among U.S. women have decreased over the past decade, Black women continue to be disproportionately affected.

Following the World Health Organization ’s (WHO) definition of self-care, abortion self-care is the ability of pregnant individuals to manage their unwanted pregnancies with or without the support of health care providers—particularly, in the early weeks of pregnancy (up to 12 weeks’ gestation). The advent of medication abortion (MA ) has made this possible, as early self-managed MA at home is a safe, acceptable and cost-effective method of pregnancy termination. The drugs currently available for MA are mifepristone and misoprostol, as well as the two packaged together (also known as the combipack), which...

The need for comprehensive sexual and reproductive health (SRH) care can be especially acute during humanitarian crises, as women and girls are at increased vulnerability of experiencing sexual violence, unintended pregnancy and pregnancy-related complications. However, in such settings, the chaos of displacement and basic survival may supplant the importance of SRH care, and individuals may also have diminished access to safe services.
