  • Displacing older people as heads of households and depriving them of their autonomy in the name of affection are cultural norms even in countries where the family is the central institution and the sense of filial obligation is strong (11). Such infantilization and overprotection can leave the older person isolated, depressed and demoralized, and can be considered a form of abuse. In some traditional societies, older widows are abandoned and their property seized.

  • The impact of an earthquake, flood or war on reproductive health can be devastating. Communities in crisis are suddenly deprived of reproductive health information and services. Access is cut off, yet needs persist, even escalate. A large number of refugees and internally displaced women will be pregnant, facing delivery under dangerous conditions; others may be victims of violence including rape. The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) is committed to assisting and protecting women, men and youth made vulnerable by natural disaster, armed conflict, persecution and other causes.

  • Population displacement caused by cyclone damage and flooding can result in overcrowding in resettlement areas, raising the risk of transmission of certain communicable diseases. Measles (see section below on vaccine-preventable diseases), ARI, diphtheria and pertussis are transmitted from person to person through respiratory droplets, and the risks are increased in situations of forced relocation to shared areas which are overcrowded and have inadequate ventilation. Overcrowding can also increase the likelihood of transmission of meningitis, waterborne and vector-borne diseases.

  • Although significant declines in fertility have occurred in most regions of the world, these have recently slowed in several countries. In many sub-Saharan African countries the fertility transition remains in its early stages. National level fertility declines also disguise significant variations within countries. Poor and rural populations often have the least access to family planning informa- tion and services, and thus the highest fertility rates.

  • Given that the adverse affects of climate change on agriculture are expected to burden poor countries disproportionately, and their rural poor in particular, Bolivia is especially vulnerable as it is the poorest country in South America with at least 70% of the rural population living in poverty and more than a third of rural Bolivians living in extreme poverty. Those citizens who have been displaced by natural disasters in rural areas often remain at risk in urban areas as shantytowns and slums are frequently situated on land prone to flooding or landslide.

  • Nepal has witnessed massive political upheaval during the past decade with insurgency forces actively expressing dissatisfaction with the existing status quo. It was in early 1996 that the Maoist insurgency took root in the country exerting a tremendous influence on the social, economic and political life of the country. The constant conflict forced the Nepalese people to migrate from rural to urban areas and to neighboring countries, resulting in the displacement of a large proportion of the population and impacting the demographic situation.

  • International migrants from developing countries are of both rural and urban origin (ratios vary from country to country and change over time according to socio-economic conditions in both sending and receiving areas). However, we will focus on the rural factors that motivate vast sectors of the population to consider migration in order to improve their lives and diversify their sources of income. During the last 50 years, 800 million people have migrated from rural to urban areas, and it is expected that these migrations will continue to increase.

Conditions may be hostile or hospitable, politically charged or on the path to peace; they are never easy.

  • implement a comprehensive package of interventions to meet the needs of vulnerable populations.

  • Reproductive health is a human right, and like all other human rights, it applies to refu- gees, internally displaced persons and others living in humanitarian settings. To realize this right, affected populations must have access to comprehensive reproductive health information and services so they are free to make informed choices about their health and well-being. The provision of comprehensive and high-quality reproductive health services requires a multisectoral integrated approach.
