UNFPA Papua New Guinea

Papua New Guinea is highly prone to natural disasters such as earthquakes, tsunamis and volcanic eruptions as well as drought, flooding, cyclones and associated disease outbreaks. Vulnerabilities are compounded by issues that include tribal fighting, rapid population growth, urbanization, land degradation and climate change. UNFPA has been investing in disaster preparedness in Papua New Guinea. Activities include provision of information to women and young people on sexual and reproductive health and rights and gender-based violence. UNFPA also trains health workers on the Minimum Initial Service Package (MISP) for reproductive health and on Minimum Standards for Prevention and Response to GBV in Emergencies (GBViE) .
