Lebanon Humanitarian Emergency

Adolescent girls play a clapping game.
UNFPA/Sima Diab

Since the start of the conflict in Syria, Lebanon has hosted Syrian refugees and now has one of the largest refugee populations in the world. The conflict across the border and the influx of refugees have worsened the country's own social, economic, demographic, political and security challenges. UNFPA and partners work to serve the affected populations by providing sexual and reproductive health services and by supporting mechanisms to prevent and respond to gender-based violence.
