Iraq Humanitarian Emergency

Political instability and internal displacement continue to drive humanitarian needs in Iraq; years of conflict have disrupted livelihoods and left millions of people struggling to meet their basic needs. Women, children from female-headed households and displaced persons, in particular, face challenges in accessing basic services. Gender-based violence and harmful practices such as child marriage are widespread. UNFPA is working with partners to respond to women’s sexual and reproductive health needs and prevent and responds to GBV.
