Ukraine Humanitarian Emergency

In 2018, 4.4 million women, men, children and elderly are continuing to suffer due to the entrenched political impasse and the ongoing armed conflict in eastern Ukraine. Despite many attempts at ceasefire, hostilities continue and to date around 1.6 million people are internally displaced. Those who are most vulnerable are increasingly resorting to risky means to cope, including survival sex and human trafficking. A rapid scale-up in the provision of emergency assistance is an immediate priority, especially for those who are most vulnerable, such as the elderly and women of reproductive age. UNFPA is leading the gender-based violence sub-cluster in Ukraine.
