To ask the Secretary of State for International Development if she will make a statement on her Department's policy on programmes to protect women in refugee camps from using inappropriate post-coital and abortion techniques. [39086]

Clare Short

It is my Department's policy to support programmes that offer all women and men essential health care, including reproductive health care, information and services, that responds to their demands and to offer them informed choices. We work to ensure that women in refugee camps have free and informed choices in line with best medical practice.
