UNFPA has been implementing interventions aimed at preventing gender-based violence and sexual exploitation and promoting health, autonomy and dignity of women and adolescent girls in affected regions. UNFPA support also includes distribution of dignity kits to support people in meeting their urgent hygiene needs and of reproductive health kits, which contain key supplies to facilitate timely provision of appropriate reproductive health services during crises.
