Mali Humanitarian Emergency

The conflict that broke out in northern Mali in 2012 crippled the country's already weak economic and social sectors. A peace agreement that was signed in 2015 provided some relief, but many Malians consider it too unsafe to return home from neighbouring countries or from internal displacement. Pervasive food insecurity, a lack of income-generating opportunities and difficulty accessing basic services are some of the other challenges facing the country and can be especially detrimental to the health and safety of women and girls. UNFPA and partners work to provide sexual and reproductive health services to those in need and support mechanisms to prevent and respond to gender-based violence.
