Jordan Humanitarian Emergency

UNFPA Jordan/Sima Diab

Jordan is facing enormous humanitarian challenges and has seen its population grow rapidly due to the influx of refugees fleeing political crisis from neighboring countries. Jordan has been receiving a steady influx of Syrians into the country through official and unofficial borders, since March 2011. UNFPA Jordan plays a major role in the emergency response by providing holistic sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services, and services to prevent and respond to sexual and gender based violence (GBV), in both camp and non-camp settings.
