RANZCOG welcomes Government investment into sexual and reproductive health in the Indo-Pacific region

17 February 2017

Media Statement


The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RANZCOG) welcomes the recent announcement of the Australian Government committing to a continued partnership with the International Planned Parenthood Federation in the Indo-pacific region. A $9.5 million-dollar investment to deliver the Sexual and Reproductive Health Program in Crisis and Post Crisis Settings (SPRINT) over three years, aims to strengthen sexual and reproductive health, rights and support during humanitarian crises.

“The fact that women living in countries so close to our borders are at much greater risk of poor sexual and reproductive health outcomes is just not good enough”, says President of RANZCOG Professor Steve Robson. “We know that investing in women’s health has the broader benefit of improving the overall health of communities, and the Australian Government are to be congratulated for continuing this initiative”.

The SPRINT program assists women and girls to stay healthy, remain in education, and participate equally in society and the economy when communities recover from crises.
