Humanitarian needs in Ethiopia are driven by conflict-related displacement and natural hazards, including recurrent drought, floods and desert locust infestation. The conflict in the Tigray region, which began in November of 2020, has forced tens of thousands more people from their homes. Internally displaced persons live under very challenging conditions, with limited access to basic services such as food, healthcare, water and sanitation. In Tigray region, there has been an alarming increase in reports of sexual violence. UNFPA's humanitarian action in Ethiopia includes maternal and newborn health, family planning as well as gender-based violence prevention and response services. UNFPA also distributes dignity kits, which contain items such as sanitary napkins, clothing, soap and undergarments, to support people in meeting their basic hygiene needs.
