Peru Humanitarian Emergency

Woman speaks with UNFPA staff member
UNFPA Peru

Peru hosts the second-largest number of Venezuelan refugees and migrants, after Colombia, and receives the largest number of asylum applications by Venezuelans. Access to basic services such as healthcare and education is limited for many refugees and migrants and is often complicated by a lack of identity documents or irregular status in Peru. Peru's health system lacks the resources to adequately respond to the health needs of refugees and migrants. Only pregnant women (for prenatal and delivery care) and children under five can obtain free public health services. Refugees and migrants, especially women and girls, also face increased risks of sexual exploitation and abuse and human trafficking. Many refugees and migrants are in need hygiene products, healthcare, including sexual and reproductive health services, and protection services. UNFPA's response in Peru focuses on prevention of obstetric emergencies, gender-based violence prevention and response, provision of family planning services and delivery of dignity kits containing essential hygiene products to women in need. UNFPA also supports strengthening of local and national capacities on sexual and reproductive health-related issues.
