In view of the possible risk of disruption of SRMNCAH services owing to the increased demands on the health system in the South and South-East Asia and Pacific countries following the COVID-19 pandemic, there was discussion in the H6 Regional Working Group to prepare a generic guidance for countries to plan for continuity of essential SRMNCAH services in the regions.  WHO-SEARO, and regional offices of UNFPA (APRO) and UNICEF (ROSA and EAPRO) collaborated to develop a joint Regional Operative Guidance on SRMNCAH Service Provision during COVID-19.
