Lebanon has been facing multiple interrelated crises, including economic collapse, civil unrest and a protracted refugee crisis; Lebanon hosts the largest number of displaced people per capita in the world; one in five people in the country is a refugee. The COVID-19 pandemic has strained the country’s health system and heightened the risk of violence and exploitation, especially for women and girls. The Beirut port explosion in August 2020 has further exacerbated vulnerabilities. UNFPA is scaling up interventions focusing on access to quality, comprehensive and accessible sexual and reproductive health, mental health and psychosocial support services, as well as gender-based violence risk mitigation.
