Mali Humanitarian Emergency

The humanitarian situation in Mali continues to deteriorate, due to conflict and insecurity but also climate shocks, including droughts and floods. Intercommunal conflicts are fuelling displacement and many communities are struggling to access food, water, healthcare, education, and protection services. Human rights violations are common, while women and girls also faced increased risks of gender-based violence (GBV). Malnutrition is another serious concern for pregnant women. Failure to meet humanitarian needs now will worsen the impact of the crisis in Mali and the wider region and could perpetuate intercommunal violence, while exposing youth to a higher risk of recruitment by non-state armed actors and criminal groups. Together with partners, UNFPA has been providing sexual and reproductive health (SRH) and GBV services to affected women, men, girls and young people. The response also includes training of service providers and humanitarian actors on various aspects of SRH and GBV, including psychosocial support.
