Resolution number: 
7
November 2005
Whereas: 

The US Women’s Commission for Refugee Women and Children has prepared a Reproductive Health General Statement that outlines challenges to comprehensive reproductive health care for women, men and youth in conflict-affected settings and calls for increased funding and political support for reproductive health services;

Therefore be it resolved: 

That the CCR:

  1. Support the provision of comprehensive gender-based reproductive health care for all, and women and girls in particular, in conflict-affected settings.
  2. Recognize that diminished political support for reproductive health combined with reduced funding for these programs can have and is having a devastating impact on refugee and displaced women, men and youth.
  3. Endorse the Reproductive Health General Statement that calls upon the US government, lawmakers, donors, United Nations agencies and non-governmental organizations to renew their commitment and strengthen their response to reproductive health needs for women, men and youth in conflict-affected settings through increased funding and political support.
