Background The Syrian conflict presents the fastest growing refugee crisis in the world today, with over four million people now displaced outside the country. Existing literature suggests that family planning services are often still neglected in crisis response efforts.
Methods A small-scale qualitative study conducted in May 2013, interviewing Syrian women residing in a Jordanian refugee camp about use and barriers to accessing family planning services.
Results The study shows that significant barriers remain, and suggests that international attempts to address refugees’ family planning needs remain inconsistent.
Conclusions Several practical measures are identified to address barriers to access, making the article of both practical and academic relevance.
- family planning service provision
- reproductive health politics
- qualitative research
