Cuba Humanitarian Emergency

In January 2019, a severe tornado hit the capital of Havana, destroying homes, health facilities, schools, electric and telecommunication infrastructure, businesses and harbor infrastructure. This happened less than two years after Hurricane Irma made landfall across the Caribbean in September 2017 and less than three years after Hurricane Matthew hit the region in October 2016, devastating many countries including Cuba. UNFPA continues to provide hygiene kits as well as reproductive health kits to meet contraception needs, prevent and treat sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and HIV/AIDS, and support delivery care and obstetric surgeries in health facilities that provide gynecological services in affected municipalities in Cuba.
