Jordan hosts one of the largest numbers 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 Türkiye, Lebanon, Iraq and Egypt, has shouldered the primary responsibility for hosting Syrian refugees. The presence of refugees has put pressure on basic infrastructure and services, affecting both Syrians and vulnerable Jordanians. COVID-19 has further stretched people’s coping capacities. Together with partners, UNFPA has been responding to the sexual and reproductive health needs of vulnerable women and young people in Jordan and is focused on strengthening local capacities to prevent and respond to gender-based violence.
