Mauritania Humanitarian Emergency

A young mother holds her child.
UNFPA

Humanitarian needs in Mauritania are driven by climate shocks, high levels of food insecurity, an influx of refugees from Mali and poor access to basic services, such as safe water and sanitation, healthcare and protection services. Vaccination coverage is well below target, raising serious concerns for the health of mothers and children. Acute malnutrition exacerbates health risks faced by pregnant and lactating women. UNFPA provides life-saving sexual and reproductive health as well as gender-based violence prevention and response services to crisis-affected women and adolescents in Mauritania, including Malian refugees in the Mbera refugee camp.
