Redressing Gendered Health Inequalities of Displaced Women and Girls

University of Southampton

ReGHID

Millions of women and adolescent girls in Central America and Venezuela are caught in the vicious spiral of vulnerability to endemic violence and humanitarian crisis and forced displacement, and when they are on their journey, they are at risk of rape, trafficking, abuse and other risks related to poverty, stigma, discrimination and social exclusion.
There is an urgent need for rights-based health policies to protect the health and well-being of this exceptionally vulnerable group. Our research will address specific sexual and reproductive health needs and provide policymakers with new data and recommendations to redress health inequalities of displaced women and girls in Central and South America.
