Trinidad and Tobago is receiving increasing numbers of refugees and migrants from Venezuela, who undertake dangerous boat journeys to reach countries in the Caribbean. Refugees and migrants face increased protection risks, including gender-based violence (GBV) and sexual exploitation. They also face obstacles in accessing basic health information, including information on family planning and prenatal care, and often lack knowledge of available health services. UNFPA's response in Trinidad and Tobago includes provision of family planning services and information, maternal and newborn care, distribution of dignity kits as well as GBV prevention and response services.
