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.
