Despite progress on Sudan’s political transition, humanitarian needs remain extensive, driven by flooding, armed violence, displacement, economic challenges and outbreaks of disease, including COVID-19. Fewer than one third of health facilities in Sudan offer emergency obstetric care and availability of gender-based violence services is also limited. UNFPA is responding to the sexual and reproductive health needs of affected populations, through services such as HIV prevention and treatment, antenatal and delivery care and family planning and a GBV hotline, which was launched in 2020. UNFPA is also conducting a wide-scale GBV needs assessment in Sudan.
