Syria is experiencing the biggest humanitarian crisis in the world today. As of March 2015, more than half of all Syrians have been forced to flee their homes, with 7.6 million people displaced within Syria and 3.9 million people living as refugees in neighbouring countries. As with all humanitarian emergencies, women and girls are among the most vulnerable. Nearly half a million Syrian women, including refugees and those still in Syria, are pregnant and in need of maternal care.
UNFPA, with its partners, is deploying dignity kits, reproductive health kits and equipment, and medical personnel to assist affected communities. UNFPA is also supporting emergency obstetric care and psychosocial support.
