COVID-19: Sexual and Reproductive Health in the Midst of a Pandemic

Our producer Jess Brown looks into the potentially catastrophic secondary impacts of COVID-19 on the lives and health of women and girls. Sexual and reproductive health services are difficult to access in normal times and the secondary impacts of COVID-19 have made them even more elusive This episode includes voices from our projects in Honduras and South Africa, discussing the impacts of losing access to essential sexual and reproductive health services, particularly safe abortion care and contraception care. *Correction: Since publication it's been established that some ambulance services are running in proximity to our Honduras project.

A tent hospital, the sound of artillery fire and an all-pervading wind: welcome to Yemen.

INSIDE YEMEN #1: The noise of bombs

In episode 1 of “Inside Yemen”, you are plunged straight into the heart of Sanaa, Yemen’s capital. Natalie tells you about her journey to Saada in the mountains in the north of the country. This is Houthi territory - the target of thousands of airstrikes over the last five years. Not far away, Thierry and his expedition are heading for the besieged town of Taiz, through the mountains and at night… to avoid the snipers.

Colombia: Venezuelan Women's Struggle for Healthcare

In this episode of Everyday Emergency we hear about the lived experience of Venezuelan women bearing the brunt of their country's healthcare crisis and the difficulties they continue to face in Colombia. An estimated 4 million Venezuelans have left their country since the collapse of its political and economic systems, and at least 1.4 million have come to neighbouring Colombia. They are coming from a country where, over the last few years, most people had no access to medicines and essential health services were entirely out of reach. Now in Colombia, they often face the same problem. Legally entitled to receive emergency medical care from the Colombian health system, those services are limited to vaccinations, immediate lifesaving treatment, and deliveries — and many migrants report being turned away from receiving these. MSF Producer, Mandy White reports from our clinics in the La Guajira region of Colombia. --- Subscribe through iTunes or your favourite podcast provider, and fi...
