Venezuela Humanitarian Emergency

A deepening political and economic crisis in Venezuela has undermined the ability of millions of Venezuelans to meet their basic needs. Access to food, water, hygiene and sanitation, education and healthcare, including sexual and reproductive health services, has been severely constrained. Maternal and newborn deaths and disease have significantly increased and most basic contraceptives are unavailable in public hospitals. The crisis has also exacerbated gender-based violence (GBV) and heightened the risks of trafficking and sexual exploitation, particularly for women who are internally displaced or in transit to other countries. UNFPA has been responding to the sexual and reproductive health needs of women and young people, for instance through the provision of maternal and newborn health services, contraceptives and hygiene kits, and is leading the GBV sub-cluster in Venezuela.
