Kenya Humanitarian Emergency

Two young women
UNFPA Kenya/Douglas Waudo

Between December 2019 and March 2020, Kenya experienced the worst locust infestation in 70 years. Hundreds of thousands of people were also affected by floods in 2020. Climate hazards drive displacement and exacerbate the risk of food insecurity, malnutrition and disease outbreaks. In addition, Kenya hosts over half a million refugees, mainly from Somalia, South Sudan, the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Ethiopia. Many crisis-affected people lack access to life-saving services such as prenatal care, skilled birth attendance and services for survivors of gender-based violence. UNFPA is working to improve availability of and access to reproductive, maternal, newborn, child and adolescent health services in crisis-affected areas, including refugee camps.
