The ongoing armed conflict in Eastern Ukraine continues to take a toll on the well-being of millions of women, girls and young people. Access to livelihood opportunities and basic services, including life-saving sexual and reproductive health care and information, has been severely disrupted. Many health facilities near the 'contact line' between the government-controlled and non-government controlled areas lack medicines, equipment and staff. Gender-based violence is also pervasive but cases go under-reported. A rapid scale-up of services is needed to meet urgent health and protection needs. UNFPA supports health facilities in Eastern Ukraine and provides services in affected communities through mobile SRH and GBV teams.
