Protecting Women in Emergency Situations
Humanitarian crises - whether caused by armed conflict or natural disaster - always hurt women and girls the most.
In times of upheaval, pregnancy-related deaths and sexual violence soar. Reproductive health services - including prenatal care, assisted delivery, and emergency obstetric care - often become unavailable. Young people become more vulnerable to HIV infection and sexual exploitation. And many women lose access to family planning services, exposing them to unwanted pregnancy in perilous conditions.
UNFPA Humanitarian Response moves quickly when emergency strikes, to protect the reproductive health of communities in crisis.
