As in most countries, awareness of emergency contraception (EC) as a pregnancy prevention method is low in comparison to other contraceptive methods. While existing sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) programs in the assessed sites offer EC to survivors of sexual assault, family planning providers, especially in Uganda, reportedly disapprove of making EC available for non-sexual assault cases, citing that it could promote promiscuity, particularly among adolescents. EC is not available in the assessed health facilities providing family planning services in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia although they are available through prescription at pharmacies, nor in UNHCR’s implementing partner health facilities in Amman, Jordan.

Reproductive health assessments in northern Uganda and Jordan revealed that emergency contraception is not provided in a consistent manner for unwanted pregnancies, including victims of sexual violence.

The results of a family survey conducted with a sample of 2,590 families living in a Palestine refugee camp in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan revealed that the average incidence of wife beating over a lifetime is 44.7%. The results also showed that the percentage of men who admitted beating their wives is higher than the percentage of women who admitted being beaten, at 48.9% compared with 42.5%. Another study revealed that 19% of pregnant women frequenting health centres were subject to physical violence during the year preceding the study, and that 11.4% of the pregnant women admitted to being subject to physical violence during pregnancy.

A survey conducted in Jordan from March through December of 2013, found 83 percent of Syrian women surveyed were not aware of any services available for survivors of gender based violence.

According to the International Consortium for Emergency contraception, Jordan does not have a product registered for EC thus in Jordan they would benefit from the use of the Yuzpe method.
