Message from ISPOG

In war and other situations of conflict, care for women and children is especially vulnerable and reproductive rights will be violated. Obstetric and gynaecologic care is more difficult under these circumstances and health care workers cannot do their jobs properly and may become victims of war themselves. Also, war and conflict-related migration are known to be associated with increased levels of gender-based violence, mental ill-health and human rights deprivations. Therefore, war has long-term and transgenerational implications for reproductive health. 
Currently, the war in Ukraine, with the attendant civilian casualties, separation of families, and influx of refugees into neighbouring countries is one of these situations that abhors the world. It challenges the global community to be proactive in addressing the plight of vulnerable persons, particularly women and children. 
The International Society of Psychosomatic Obstetrics and Gynaecology (ISPOG) calls on governments and nongovernmental organisations to ensure the timely implementation of extant guidelines and interventions developed from the experiences of families and communities affected by warfare elsewhere in the world over the last three decades.
