Türkiye continues to host the largest number of refugees worldwide, the large majority of whom come from Syria. The social and economic impacts of COVID-19 have exacerbated the vulnerability of refugees and host community members and created additional barriers to accessing essential services, including sexual and reproductive health care and protection from gender-based violence. UNFPA is focused on strengthening access to critical SRH and GBV services for both refugees and in host communities, paying attention to the specific needs of LGBTQIA+ persons, sex workers, HIV-positive persons and persons with disabilities.
