Abstract : Even though, a lot of funding has been injected into Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR), sadly, the area is still poorly addressed and unfulfilled. For the case of Kyaka II Refugee, little or no research is available on SRHR. Purpose: This survey sought to determine the prevailing status of SRHR services in the Kyaka II refugee settlement. Methods: This quantitative study was a survey in nature. Using stratified sampling, primary data were collected from 117, females aged 12 to 60 years. 13 respondents were randomly selected from each of the 9 zones of the settlement. Findings: The study found out low (20%) prevalence of; Sexual Health, Sexual Rights, Reproductive Health, and Reproductive Rights, in the refugee settlement. Value/ Recommendation: This study is valuable to funders, policymakers, and organizations responding to Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights in refugee communities. Therefore, more funding allocation, in the areas of SRHR in the settlement, is recommended by the study.
