Guinea Humanitarian Emergency

A mother and father with their baby.
UNFPA Guinea

Guinea faces economic and social challenges that are exacerbated by the thousands of refugees that it hosts. The country is also vulnerable to outbreaks of disease, including the deadly Ebola virus that devasted health infrastructure in 2014. In these emergency situations, UNFPA works to provide sexual and reproductive health services to ensure the health of pregnant women and women of reproductive age. It also works to establish mechanisms to prevent and respond to gender-based violence to ensure the safety of vulnerable women and children.
