Afghanistan faces one of the world’s most complex humanitarian emergencies, driven by years of armed conflict. The country is also prone to recurrent natural disasters. Maternal mortality in Afghanistan is among the highest in the world and gender-based violence is widespread, affecting millions of women and girls across the country. UNFPA is investing in integrated sexual and reproductive health services and addressing gender-based violence in Afghanistan, including services specifically targeting youth.
