Bangladesh Humanitarian Emergency

A mother and her young child.
Nicolas Axelrod/Ruom for UNFPA

Bangladesh hosts one of the world’s largest-refugee populations; more than 900,000 Rohingya refugees living in Cox’s Bazar district depend on humanitarian assistance to meet their basic needs. In addition, Bangladesh is highly vulnerable to climate-related disasters, including floods and cyclones. UNFPA provides life-saving sexual and reproductive health and protection services across the country. This includes provision of emergency obstetric and neonatal care and support to 38 women-friendly spaces, 23 of which are located in Cox’s Bazar.
