One of the things that I think a lot of people forget is that in an emergency setting, women don’t stop having babies. In fact, they’re more at risk of dying in childbirth. They’re more at risk of unsafe abortion and lack of access to contraceptive care. They’re more at risk of sexual exploitation and trafficking, and rape is often used as a tool of war, and I feel like sexual and reproductive health and rights are only just now being seen as something we need to address during a conflict and not after the conflict.

I will never forget the first delivery I saw in the jungle.
Fighting was fierce between the Karen people and the Burmese military, people were running away all around us—it was 1991. It was late at night, and someone came to fetch me, telling me a woman was giving birth between the trees. I had never seen a delivery outside a home or a hospital at the time. She was a young woman, leaning against a huge tree trunk, screaming in the dark—with an older lady helping her give birth, bare hands and no instruments, with the shaking beam of a flashlight held above her head. She on the other hand was silent, ignoring the panicked voices of those around her—I wasn’t even sure how well she could see. By the time we arrived there, the baby was already on its way, and I was shocked.
That’s when I realized how much we needed to do for women’s health there, in this war zone.
Tip: How to save time when creating multiple profile popups.
Create one popup that has the image, text format, animations, and interactions you want each personal profile popup to have. Copy and paste the popup and change the names of the pasted popup folders in the layers panel. Next, edit the text and replace the images in each popup folder. Once completed, each popup will have unique content but a consistent format. This is more efficient than making each popup from scratch.
Hover interactions allow you to reveal or hide folders, objects, or groups when the user hovers their mouse over your specified trigger.
In this template, when the user hovers over an image an opaque shape appears over the image. This hover interaction communicates that an additional interaction will be triggered when the user clicks on the image.
A team profile section can provide insightful information about individuals and their roles within a team or company.

To add a hover interaction, draw a hotspot over the area you want the user to hover. Select the hotspot and navigate to the Interaction tab in the Inspector Panel. Select “hover” as your trigger and specify the action, which can be: show, hide, show and stay visible, or hide and stay hidden. Finally, choose the folder, object, or group you want to reveal or hide.
