The Adolescent and Sexual Reproductive Health (ASRH) Toolkit for Humanitarian Settings provides information and guidance to advocate for ASRH and implement adolescent-inclusive SRH interventions. The toolkit is meant to accompany Chapter 4 "Adolescent Reproductive Health" of the Inter-Agency Field Manual on Reproductive Health in humanitarian settings. The tools have been conceived to operationalize this chapter by providing guidance on what should be done to ensure that sexual and reproductive health interventions put into place during and immediately after a crisis are responsive to the needs of adolescents. Recognizing that mainstreaming approaches to mainstreaming ASRH in emergencies have not yet been standardized, this ASRH Toolkit has been designed to help program managers at implementing agencies ensure that the sexual and reproductive health needs of adolescents are addressed during all emergency situations, be they natural or man-made. It also provides selected tools specifically for health providers so they can more effectively provide and track services for adolescents at the clinic and community levels. The tools are designed to be user-friendly so that service providers who have never been trained to work with adolescents can feel comfortable treating them during an emergency.
