These guidelines, known as the Women and Infants Services Package (WISP), present a framework for the minimum and initial actions needed to respond to the essential health care needs of pregnant women, new mothers, fragile newborns, and infants in a crisis or emergency, such as a natural disaster, an epidemic, or a terrorist event. WISP includes general information, rationale, activities and actions, recommended equipment and supplies, and a monitoring and surveillance component.
