Ukraine Humanitarian Emergency

Since the start of the armed conflict in 2014, nearly 1.5 million people have been internally displaced and require humanitarian assistance. These needs are most urgent along the contact line in eastern Ukraine. The destruction of health facilities has severely impacted the ability of affected populations to access life-saving medical care, including treatment for sexually transmitted infections and obstetric care, while domestic abuse and sexual violence has also increased. UNFPA and partners work to provide sexual and reproductive health services and support mechanisms to prevent and respond to gender-based violence.
