Ghana Humanitarian Emergency

A woman lies next to her infant.
UNFPA Guinea-Bissau

Ghana is regularly affected by floods and prone to earthquakes. Although the country is generally stable, some areas in the north still regularly experience episodes of conflict and violence. UNFPA provides assistance to people affected by conflict and disasters as well as to refugees and asylum seekers in Ghana. The main focus of UNFPA's response is on adolescents' access to sexual and reproductive health services and gender-based violence prevention and response. UNFPA also distributes dignity kits to support people in meeting their basic hygiene needs.
