Turkey Humanitarian Emergency

A Syrian refugee receives UNFPA aid.
UNFPA Turkey

Turkey 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 LGBTQI persons, sex workers, HIV-positive persons and persons with disabilities.
