Niger Humanitarian Emergency

Chad is facing multiple humanitarian crises, including conflict and cyclical natural disasters, and is one of the poorest countries in the world. Millions of people are food insecure and lack access to safe water, hygiene and sanitation facilities as well as healthcare, which severely exacerbates health risks. Conflict in the Lake Chad Basin and in neighbouring countries continues to drive displacement. Chad ranks 186th out of 189 countries on the Gender Inequality Index, meaning that crisis-affected women and girls are highly vulnerable to discrimination and gender-based violence (GBV). UNFPA leads the GBV sub-cluster in Chad and is responding to the sexual and reproductive health needs of crisis-affected people, specifically focusing on the needs of adolescents.
