Egypt Humanitarian Emergency

An Egyptian family sits inside their home.
UNFPA/Omar Gharzeddine

Egypt has been undergoing a political transition since the revolution of 25 January 2011. Although Egypt has reached its  political  stability  , there are continuing  economic and social challenges . Another big challenge is the hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugees that have been entering the country since 2013. UNFPA continues to provide assistance in sexual and reproductive and services to prevent and respond to gender based violence (GBV).
