Uganda Humanitarian Emergency

UNFPA Uganda

Uganda continues to host the largest number of refugees in Africa, mostly from South Sudan, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Burundi and Somalia. Refugees face food insecurity, malnutrition, and limited access to safe sanitation, livelihood opportunities and health care, including prenatal care. UNFPA is focused on responding to acute needs and empowering women, girls and young people in refugee-hosting and flood-affected districts. Services provided include maternal health care, family planning, HIV/STI services and GBV case management.
