Colombia hosts the largest number of Venezuelan refugees and migrants. Some parts of the country also continue to be affected by armed violence. Measures to curb the spread of COVID-19 have disrupted access to basic services and exacerbate existing vulnerabilities. Reports of gender-based violence as well as unplanned pregnancies and maternal deaths are rising. UNFPA is working to ensure continuity of sexual and reproductive health services and mitigate the risk of gender-based violence, reaching both Venezuelan and Colombian women and girls, including in indigenous communities.
