In disaster situations, adolescents are vulnerable but they can also be agents of change. Adolescents have dynamic, highly motivated, energetic, creative and innovative characteristics. Based on these characters, adolescents should not only be targets but they can also be utilized as partners in health crisis response. The involvement of adolescents is needed, which includes helping the affected population, assisting in data collection, distribution of aid, volunteering in evacuation etc. In particular, adolescents can support the implementation of the Minimum Initial Service Package (MISP) for adolescent reproductive health in disaster situations (MISP for adolescents).

This handbook provides a detailed guide as to how adolescents can be engaged in health crisis responses to support the implementation of the MISP for adolescents. This includes information on youth involvement, types of activities and time of implementation, experience of youth involvement from other countries, youth networks that already exist in Indonesia as potential partners as well as tools for monitoring and evaluation.

In 2008, the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Indonesia developed a programme for reproductive health (RH) services in disaster situations which was then implemented throughout Indonesia. At that time, the implementation was based on the guideline on reproductive health in disaster situations, translated from the Inter-Agency Working Group (IAWG) on Reproductive Health in Crises international guideline.

Since 2014, the guideline has been adapted to suit Indonesia’s context with the publication of the Minimum Initial Service Package (MISP) for Reproductive Health in Crisis Situations. This MISP for RH guideline was developed based on field experiences and practices in the provision of reproductive health services in crisis situations from the tsunami that struck Aceh in 2004 until more recent disasters in 2017.

The Worlds apart: Reproductive Health and Rights in an age of Inequality
 
In today’s world, gaps in wealth have grown shockingly wide. Billions of people linger at the bottom, denied their human rights and prospects for a better life. At the top, resources and privileges accrue at explosive rates, pushing the world ever further from the vision of equality embodied in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. 
 
Inequality is often understood in terms of income or wealth—the dividing line between the rich and poor. But, in reality, economic disparities are only one part of the inequality story. Many other social, racial, political and institutional dimensions feed on each other, and together block hope for progress among people on the margins. Two critical dimensions are gender inequality, and inequalities in realizing sexual and reproductive health and rights; the latter, in particular, still receives inadequate attention. Neither explains the totality of inequality in the world today, but both are essential pieces that demand much more action. Without such action, many women and girls will remain caught in a vicious cycle of poverty, diminished capabilities, unfulfilled human rights and unrealized potential—especially in developing countries, where gaps are widest.
