Jordan Humanitarian Emergency

A young refugee woman and her mother.
UNFPA Jordan/Sima Diab

Although relatively stable, Jordan faces immense humanitarian challenges. Its population has grown rapidly due to the influx of refugees fleeing from the conflicts in Syria and Iraq. This has stressed the country's resources, while chronic underfunding has limited its ability to respond to the humanitarian needs of affected populations. UNFPA plays a major role in this response by providing holistic sexual and reproductive health services and by supporting mechanisms to prevent and respond to gender-based violence in camp and non-camp settings.
