Tanzania Humanitarian Emergency

The humanitarian response in Tanzania focuses mainly on refugees from Burundi and the Democratic Republic of the Congo who are hosted in three camps in Nyarugusu, Nduta, and Mtendeli. Refugees and asylum seekers live in crowded conditions and face many challenges in meeting their basic needs such as food, health and hygiene. Women and girls also face increased risks of gender-based violence (GBV). Early marriage and early pregnancy are additional concerns. UNFPA provides sexual and reproductive health services, including family planning, to women, men and adolescents in camps and focuses on prevention, mitigation and response to GBV.
