This is the third version of the RH Kits. Reviews of experience with the kits were first conducted in 2000 and then in 2003 and in 2005. These reviews led to modifications of the contents of the kits, based on suggestions of users and on newly identified need. This booklet provides information on use, contents, and ordering procedures for the adapted set of kits as of December 2006. Many individuals participated in the preparation of the four versions of the Reproductive Health Kits. They include: Kate Burns, Pamela Delargy, Wilma Doedens, France Donnay, Fidel Font, Lorelei Goodyear, Robin Gray, Ann Janssens, Myriam Henkens, Patricia Hindmarsh, Monir Islam, Sandra Krause, Serge Malé, Matthews Mathai, Janet Meyers, Doris Mugrditchian, Thidar Myint, Francis Ndowa, Roselidah Ondeko, Anne Petitgirard, Daniel Pierotti, Hakan Sandbladh, Christian Saunders, Michel Tailhades, Susan Toole, and Beverly Tucker. The major contribution of Annick Debruyne and Thérèse Delvaux is gratefully acknowledged. This is the fourth version of the Manual on Reproductive Health Kits. Users are invited to make comments on this revised and updated version of the RH Kit. All inputs will be considered for future revisions. December 2006 DRAFT 1. INTRODUCTION 1.1. BASICS 1 A major objective of the Program of Action adopted at the International Conference on Population and Development held in Cairo in September 1994, was to make reproductive health care- including family planning - accessible to all individuals by the year 2015. The Program of Action specifically called attention to the needs of especially vulnerable populations, including displaced persons and refugees. Unfortunately, prior to this time, reproductive health was rarely considered in responses to humanitarian emergencies. Bearing this in mind, the concept of a “Minimal Initial Service Package (MISP)” was created during the Inter-Agency Symposium on Reproductive Health in Emergency Situations held in June 1995. The aim of the MISP is to reduce reproductive health-related mortality and morbidity, particularly among women, during crisis situations. This can be accomplished by providing basic reproductive health services in the early phase of an emergency, including during the establishment of refugee camps. The MISP encompasses a set of activities which must be implemented in a coordinated manner by appropriately trained staff, as well as necessary equipment and supplies. All of the following aspects are important to implementing the MISP: − Appropriately trained personnel, including a coordinator for reproductive health. − Guidelines and training for the implementation of selected interventions. − Essential drugs, basic equipment and supplies necessary to implement the services. The essential drugs, equipment and supplies have been assembled by UNFPA into a set of pre-packaged kits specifically designed for these purposes - The Reproductive Health Kits. The Reproductive Health Kits provide the supplies needed to implement reproductive health in emergency situations in keeping with the objectives of the MISP. The objectives are laid out in the Inter- Agency Field Manual on Reproductive Health in Refugee Situations, namely: Enforce respect for universal precautions against HIV/AIDS (integrated in all kits) Guarantee the availability of free condoms (Condom kit 1). Prevention and manage of the consequences of sexual violence (Rape Treatment kit 3, Suture of Tears and Vaginal Examination kit 9). Prevent neonatal and maternal morbidity and mortality by providing materials for clean and safe deliveries (Clean Delivery kit 2 and Clinical Delivery kit 6 and Suture of Tears kit 9) . Initiate the establishment of a referral system to manage obstetric emergencies and other pregnancy complications (Treatment of Miscarriage and Management of Complications of Abortion kit 8, Vacuum Extraction for Delivery kit 10, Referral level sub-kit 11 and Blood Transfusion kit 12) 1 History: The first Reproductive Health Kits were developed by Marie Stopes International during the Bosnian crisis in 1992 when thousands of women were sexually abused and there was a need for appropriate medical equipment to assist them. WHO EURO/Sexuality and Family Planning unit reviewed these kits and updated them for a second phase in Bosnia. In 1997, due to unrest, Albania’s health system collapsed and maternity hospitals urgently requested basic surgical equipment to respond to the reproductive health needs of women: the referral/surgical obstetrics kit was designed by the UNFPA Representative to be adapted to local situations. A third version was assembled by IFRC, UNFPA, UNHCR, WHO, etc., to respond to the crisis in the Great Lakes Region in 1997. Taking all these experiences into account, UNFPA decided to consolidate and make available to humanitarian agencies a set reproductive health kits to speed up the implementation of reproductive health services in emergencies. This first version of the reproductive health kit was discussed and agreed upon by the members of the IAWG on Reproductive Health in June 1997 and available from June 1998. The RH Kit was revised and adapted in July 2000 after 2 years of use and more than 60 orders in different crisis situations: a survey among field users was conducted by UNFPA at the end of 1999; the survey results were discussed at the 5th IAWG meeting in February 2000. In July 2000, an IAWG sub-group reviewed all inputs from the field and developed a revised version, with inputs from the IAWG members. After a second evaluation presented at the IAWG in November 2003, additional revisions were made accordingly and the third version of the RH Kits was designed. - 1 - DRAFT Plan for the provision of comprehensive reproductive health services as soon as the situation allows. Experience has shown that, in addition to providing the MISP, it is also important to respond to the refugees’ needs by initiating complementary Reproductive Health services that include: The provision of contraceptives in order to respond to the demand of women with prior experience with contraceptives (Oral and Injectable Contraception kit 4 and IUD kit 7). Antibiotics to treat people presenting with symptoms of Sexually Transmitted Infections (STI Treatment kit 5) A Reference and Training Package will be systematically dispatched with each order of any kit. Administration supplies have been included in kit 0 (Administration kit). 1.2. KEY POINTS TO REMEMBER 1.2.1. The Reproductive Health Kits are to be used in the early phase of a crisis situation The Reproductive Health Kits have been created to facilitate the implementation of reproductive health services during the early phase of a crisis 2. Therefore, the Reproductive Health Kits are primarily to be ordered during that phase. The RH Kits contain essential RH drugs, supplies and equipment to be used for a limited period of time and for a fixed number of people. Once the basic reproductive health services have been established, the reproductive health coordinator should analyze the situation, assess the needs and re-order disposables and other equipment necessary to ensure the sustainability of the Reproductive Health program. The re-ordering should be made through the regular channels (NGOs or Agencies’ order forms) or through UNFPA Procurement Unit. 1.2.2. Each kit is formulated to be “self- sufficient” The Reproductive Health Kits have been formulated such that each kit responds to a particular reproductive health need or requirement for a specific number of people for a specific period of time. Thus, each of the kits can be ordered separately as a “stand-alone” response to a particular situation. There is an exception for sterilizing equipment: kits 7, 8 and 9 do not include sterilizing equipment because these kits are usually complimentary to kit 6 (which contains a pressure-cooker type sterilizer). Kit 11 (referral level) does not include an autoclave. 1.2.3. Some kits are designed for use only by qualified and trained health personnel The training required for the use of each kit is detailed in this booklet. You are advised to review this information prior to ordering the kits. 1.2.4. The Reproductive Health Kits are updated on a regular basis The Reproductive Health Kits are updated regularly, based on the most recent available information. Users are invited to comment on the functioning of the sub-kits in the field. All inputs will be considered for future revisions. 2 Primary health care services in emergency situations are implemented through a standardized Emergency Health Kit of essential drugs, supplies and equipment developed 30 years ago by WHO in collaboration with UN Agencies and relief NGO’s. This Kit has been revised in 1998 and is now known as the New Emergency Health Kit 1998 (NEHK– 98). A midwifery kit, emergency contraceptive pills and supplies to respect universal precautions against HIV/AIDS have been added for starting basic components of RH services. To implement more comprehensive RH services in emergency situations, the NEHK - 98 recommends ordering the Reproductive Health Kit. - 2 - DRAFT 1.3. OBTAINING THE KITS 1.3.1. Who can order the kits? UNFPA Humanitarian Response Unit UNFPA Country Offices Funding Agencies such as ECHO, the World Bank, DFID, CIDA, USAID, etc. UN Partner Agencies such as UNHCR, WHO, UNICEF, UNDP, UNAIDS, DPKO, etc. International Agencies such as IFRC, IOM, IPPF, and other NGOs who have entered into a Memorandum of Understanding with UNFPA. Host governments. 1.3.2. Contact points within UNFPA The kits can be ordered directly from: UNFPA Procurement Services Section Midtermolen 3 2100 Copenhagen Denmark Tel: +45 3546 7368 / 7000 Fax: + 45 3546 7018 E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com Information on the Kits or assistance with ordering can be provided by UNFPA Field Offices, Agency partners, or HRU: UNFPA Staff in Field Offices (in the capital city of respective countries) UNHCR or other UN coordinating agency at country level. UNFPA/HRU 220 E 42cd St New York, NY 10012 Tel: +1 212-297-5245 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org UNFPA/HRU 11-13, chemin des Anémones 1219 Chatelaine, Geneva Switzerland Tel: +41 22 917 83 15 / Fax: +41 22 917 80 16 E-mail: email@example.com 1.3.3. Conditions to be fulfilled for ordering the kits A rapid local assessment of the reproductive health situation should be undertaken to confirm need for the kit(s). The type and quantity of Reproductive Health kits being requested should be directly linked to the reproductive health services to be provided and to size of the population to be served. The availability of funds. - 3 - DRAFT Note 1: Kit 11: The pharmaceuticals Diazepam and Pentazocine are controlled substances that require an import license from the country of destination prior to shipment. As in most cases it is not possible to obtain this license in time for prompt shipment, these pharmaceutical products have been removed from the kits 6 and 11. They should be procured locally. Note 2: Oxytocin (kits 6, 8 and 11B) and blood group, HIV, Hepatitis and RPR tests (kit 12) are ‘keep cool’ items requiring the respect of the cold-chain during transportation and storage. These products are now packed separately. Oxytocin must be kept refrigerated whenever possible. Transportation in a cold-chain is recommended for Oxytocin but if the cold-chain is temporarily broken, Oxytocin will remain effective although it can lose some of its efficacy. 1.3.4. Funding (a) With own resources (funding by Governments, NGOs and other Agencies) The Agency places an order directly with UNFPA/HQ Procurement Unit. In this instance, UNFPA requires that funds be received prior to effecting shipment. (b) With UNFPA Funding Funds can be drawn from the regular UNFPA Country Program (including umbrella projects) Field Offices can apply to the Humanitarian Response Unit and Geographic Divisions for emergency funding 1.3.5. Cost of the kits The costs of each kit changes periodically. See attached leaflet for approximate prices and confirm with Procurement Service Section or UNFPA Field Offices for latest prices. . Airfreight costs: an amount calculated at 30% of total cost of each kit should be added to cover these charges (with the exception of the condom kit, for which shipping costs can vary between 30-100%, depending on the destination). Overhead costs: UNFPA charges a nominal fee of 5% to cover associated administrative costs. 1.3.6. Delivery of the order For emergency requirements: 2 to 7 days from the finalization of budget allocation. For non-crisis requirements: 10 to 12 weeks from the finalization of budget allocation. 1.3.7. Information required by the UNFPA Procurement Unit when an order is placed Inform the UNFPA Procurement Services Section of: The availability of funds and the chargeable budget code. Shipment cannot be made unless funding issues are resolved. Name and contact details of the person responsible for ordering and coordinating the delivery of the kits. Name and complete contact details (address, telephone, fax, email) of the consignee responsible for receiving the kits in the field. If multiple country destinations are involved, then a detailed list is required outlining the individual destinations, types and quantities of each kit, contact persons, etc. (e.g. 12 x kit 1 to - 4 - DRAFT hospital A, address, contact person, phone number; 3 x kit 2 to Health Center B, address, contact person, phone number; 2 x kit 11 to Hospital C, etc.). In order to improve the quality of service of these kits, feedback from the recipients is important. We encourage observations on packaging, shipping issues, quality of products, etc. We encourage recipients to revert with suggestions on how the system can be improved. Please address this information to the UNFPA Procurement Services Section. 1.3.8. Kit packaging To facilitate logistics in-country, UNFPA has organized that the boxes containing the supplies: Are marked with the weight and volume of each kit on the outer carton of the boxes. Are of a size to be handled by one or two people. Are clearly marked on the outside with the kit number, description, consignee and any other relevant information as well as a self adhesive pouch attached to the outside containing a detailed list of contents. Are banded in a particular color on all sides, with one color distinct for each kit (see section 1.4). - 5 - DRAFT 1.4. PRACTICAL INFORMATION The Reproductive Health Kits are divided into three ‘blocks’ as follows: Block 1 Six kits, for use at the community and primary health care level Each will serve the needs of a population of 10,000 persons for 3 months Color code Kit 0 Administration kit Orange Kit 1 Condom kit (Part A and B) Red Kit 2 Clean Delivery kit, individual (Part A and B) Dark Blue Kit 3 Rape Treatment kit (Part A and B) Pink Kit 4 Oral and Injectable Contraception kit White Kit 5 STD Treatment kit Turquoise Block 1 contains 6 kits. Each kit is designed to provide for the needs of 10,000 persons for a 3-month period. The kits contain mainly disposable items. Kits 1, 2 and 3 are divided into parts A and B, which can be ordered separately. Block 2 Five kits for use at primary health care and referral hospital level Each will serve the needs of a population of 30,000 persons for 3 months Color code Kit 6 Clinical Delivery kit Brown Kit 7 IUD kit Black Kit 8 Management of Miscarriage and Complications of Abortion Yellow Kit 9 Suture of Tears (cervical and vaginal) and Vaginal Examination kit Purple Kit 10 Vacuum Extraction Delivery kit Grey Block 2 is composed of 5 kits containing both disposable and reusable material. In order to prevent wastage of expensive reusable equipment, these kits are designed to be used for a population of 30,000 persons over a 3-month period. However, this certainly does not exclude these kits from being ordered for a population of less than 30,000 persons – it simply would mean that the supplies in the kits would last longer. Block 3 Two kits to be used at the referral/surgical obstetric level These will serve the needs of a population of 150,000 persons for 3 months. Color code Kit 11 Referral level kit for Reproductive Health (Part A + B) Fluorescent green Kit 12 Blood Transfusion kit Dark green Block 3 is composed of 2 kits containing both disposable and reusable equipment and supplies for use at the referral/surgical obstetrics level. In most countries the supplies provided in this kit would normally serve a population of approximately 150,000 persons over a 3-month period. In refugee situations, patients are referred to the nearest hospital, which will often require support in terms of equipment and supplies, to be able to provide the necessary services for this additional population. Kit 11 is divided into parts A and B which are usually used together but which can be ordered separately. - 6 - DRAFT 1.4.2 Reference and Training Package A Reference and Training Package will be provided with each kit order.
