Palestine Humanitarian Emergency

Palestinian youth
UNFPA Palestine

Palestine remains in a state of protracted crisis as a result of continued insecurity and Israeli military occupation. Major humanitarian concerns include violence, displacement, food insecurity and restrictions on access to income-generating opportunities and essential services such as water and healthcare. Recurrent shocks, both natural and manmade, have eroded the resilience of vulnerable households, while restrictions on mobility and strict import policies have created challenges for humanitarian actors to provide the necessary assistance. The crisis has exacerbated the risk of gender-based violence (GBV) and negative coping strategies, including intimate partner violence, sexual violence and forced marriage. Internally displaced people and refugees, women and girls with disabilities and adolescents are especially vulnerable. Across Gaza, the West Bank and Jerusalem, UNFPA is focused on improving access to sexual and reproductive health services, strengthening support mechanisms for GBV prevention and response, rehabilitation of damaged health facilities as well as emergency preparedness.
