Gathering Data and Reporting Reproductive Health Indicators
Reproductive Health Surveys
CDC’s Division of Reproductive Health helps countries throughout the world to develop, implement, and analyze national reproductive health surveys that provide high quality, population-based data on a wide variety of reproductive health indicators. Each country’s needs guide the survey content. Countries use the survey findings to assess reproductive health status, develop policy, and evaluate their programs and interventions. While carrying out the surveys, CDC staff works with in-country staff to build their survey skills. Review the list of countries where CDC’s Division of Reproductive Health conducted surveys and link to reports and datasets.
CDC’s Division of Reproductive Health has assisted other nations in improving reproductive health and continues to provide global technical assistance.
Reproductive Health in Crisis Situations
CDC’s Division of Reproductive Health has worked with international humanitarian organizations that serve the reproductive health needs of women and their families since 1998. A tool kit was developed to aid these organizations in assessing the reproductive health status and needs of women displaced from their homes because of natural and man-made disasters. These women may be refugees or internally displaced persons who are living in stabilized camp settings, returning to their country of origin, or integrating into the local host community.
