Somalia Humanitarian Emergency

The humanitarian situation in Somalia remains fragile, as a result of continued armed conflict, climate-related shocks, particularly droughts and floods, and protracted displacement. Serious protection concerns persist in the country, including attacks against civilians and gender-based violence (GBV). Women, children, people with disabilities, older persons and members of marginalized groups are among those who are particularly vulnerable. Girls in internally displaced person (IDP) camps are exposed to early or forced marriage as a coping mechanism. UNFPA is leading the implementation of the Minimum Initial Service Package (MISP), which highlights key minimum actions to be undertaken in response to people's sexual and reproductive health needs during emergencies. UNFPA also coordinates the GBV sub-cluster as well as the reproductive health working group in Somalia.
