During natural and man-made humanitarian emergencies, adolescents may face challenges and need additional support as family and social structures are disrupted: they may be separated from their families or communities, while formal and informal educational programs are discontinued. Adolescents may feel fearful, stressed, bored, or idle. The Adolescent Sexual and Reproductive Health Toolkit for Humanitarian Settings can assist healthcare providers in ensuring that new and existing sexual and reproductive health interventions are appropriately responsive to the unique needs of adolescents. It does so by providing tools for assessing the impact of a crisis on adolescents, providing an adolescent-friendly Minimum Initial Service Package, and outlining ways in which adolescents can participate in developing and implementing humanitarian programs. Other tools are specifically designed for healthcare providers to assist them in providing and tracking services for adolescents at the clinic and community levels.
