About Us

The Reproductive Health Access, Information and Services in Emergencies (RAISE) Initiative is catalyzing change in how reproductive health (RH) is addressed by all sectors involved in emergency response, from field services to advocacy, from local aid providers to global relief movements.

Developed by Columbia University's Heilbrunn Department of Population and Family Health in the Mailman School of Public Health and Marie Stopes International (MSI), the RAISE Initiative aims to address the full range of RH needs for refugees and internally displaced persons (IDPs) by building partnerships with humanitarian and development agencies, governments, United Nations (UN) bodies, advocacy agencies and academic institutions.

Through the expertise of our staff and leading research institutions; the power of cooperative partnerships with leading agencies and across multiple sectors; and the development of consistent, clearly established objectives for RH, the RAISE Initiative is well positioned to address the pressing RH needs of populations affected by emergencies.

The RAISE Initiative represents a strengthened commitment to the provision of fully integrated and comprehensive RH services for all.
