The COVID-19 pandemic and its economic impact have complicated the humanitarian situation in Venezuela and host countries. Measures to curb the spread of COVID-19 have disrupted access to basic services and led tens of thousands of people who were living in neighbouring countries to return to Venezuela, where millions of people struggle to meet their basic needs. Access to food, water, sanitation, education and healthcare, including sexual and reproductive health services, has been severely constrained. Many health facilities lack essential supplies. There is also a high risk of gender-based violence, human trafficking and sexual exploitation, particularly for displaced women. UNFPA is working to ensure continuity of sexual and reproductive health services and reduce the risk of GBV for Venezuelan women and girls.
