South Sudan Humanitarian Emergency

Adolescent girls with UNFPA Dignity Kits.
UNFPA/Bruno Feder

Forced displacement, widespread food insecurity and poor access to basic social services, triggered by years of armed conflict and chronic poverty, characterise the humanitarian crisis in South Sudan. The country's maternal mortality ratio is one of the highest in the world. The crisis has also heightened women's and girls' vulnerability to gender-based violence (GBV). UNFPA's GBV-related work in South Sudan includes support for one-stop centers, which provide integrated medical, psychosocial, legal and support services for survivors. UNFPA leads the GBV sub-cluster in the country and co-chairs the sexual and reproductive health group under the health cluster.
