Jordan Humanitarian Emergency

Jordan hosts one of the largest number of registered refugees per capita in the world: 1 out of every 15 people is a refugee in Jordan. Since the beginning of the crisis in Syria, Jordan, together with Turkey, Lebanon, Iraq and Egypt, has shouldered the primary responsibility for hosting Syrian refugees. Most Syrian refugees in Jordan live in urban areas, outside of camps, and are living below the poverty line. The presence of refugees has put pressure on basic infrastructure, affecting both Syrians and vulnerable Jordanians. Women and girls are disproportionately affected as they are generally less empowered to access basic health and protection services. Together with partners, UNFPA has been responding to the sexual and reproductive health needs of women, men and young people, and is working to strengthen gender-based violence prevention, mitigation and response. Efforts also include capacity strengthening of service providers through training on the Minimum Initial Service Package (MISP) for reproductive health in emergencies, clinical management of rape, maternal nutrition, infection control and women's health.
