MannionDaniels has worked closely with UNFPA and UNHCR to develop a Reproductive Health toolkit for urban refugees. This has involved extensive consultation with UNFPA and UNHCR staff in many countries hosting urban refugees, as well as with urban refugees based in Nairobi, Kenya.

Urban refugees are distinct from those living in camps and the emerging consensus within international organisations is that camps no longer always present the best solution for long-term refugees. Providing sexual and reproductive health services to refugees living under the radar in urban slums however is rather complicated. While these refugees share the issues of poverty, shelter and unemployment with the local poor, they have the added burdens of xenophobia, police harassment, uncertain legal status, trafficking and violence. Reproductive and sexual needs become secondary when sheer survival is threatened, but their neglect further degrades the existence of urban refugees.

The toolkit comprises of nine tools that seek to address all aspects of this complex situation and aims to provide holistic solutions to RH issues.  Its key audience is practitioners planning for urban refugees within UNFPA and UNHCR.

In more recent months since the refugee crisis in Europe has dominated the news, the existing chronic situation remains of millions of refugees already living in cities across the world and trying to find a life of dignity and security. It is this population that the toolkit was designed to help, filling a gap in existing service provision mechanisms. The need to provide comprehensive Reproductive Health services for urban refugees remains, and when the toolkit is published, MannionDaniels’ hopes it can be used to do so by international organisations working on the issues.

The Global Goals and SRHR – missing targets?


MannionDaniels is the fund manager for AmplifyChange, the civil society advocacy fund for sexual and reproductive health and rights.

In this blog, John Worley – the Fund Director for AmplifyChange – examines the new global goals for sustainable development and how they address SRHR. Read ‘The Global Goals and sexual and reproductive health and rights – missing targets?‘ by John Worley.

What policy and legal frameworks are needed for districts to enable local governments to deliver more equitable services?  What capacity-building needs does local government have in Somalia?  How can local governments be more accountable to and responsive to community priorities, with a special focus on equity?  MannionDaniels is about to start working with the Social Affairs Departments of selected districts in Somaliland and Puntland to try to answer these questions.  This is part of the UN Joint Programme on Local Governance and Decentralised Services (JPLG), which several UN partners contribute to.  MannionDaniels is looking forward to starting consultations and developing some practical solutions together with the selected Social Affairs Departments of Somaliland and Puntland.  This builds on previous work we have done on similar issues both in Kenya at local government level and in Somalia.
