Myanmar Humanitarian Emergency

Myanmar faces multiple overlapping humanitarian needs caused by natural disasters, inter-communal violence and protracted armed conflicts. Conflict in Kachin, Kayin, Shan and Rakhine states has left many people internally displaced. Movement restrictions and insecurity constrain access to basic services, including lifesaving sexual and reproductive health care. Crowded conditions in displacement sites also increase health risks. Women in conflict-affected areas furthermore face a high risk of gender-based violence, trafficking and harmful practices. Together with partners, UNFPA is supporting affected populations with services and information on SRH and GBV, including mental health and psychosocial support.
