Syria Humanitarian Emergency

UNFPA

The Syria crisis is one of the biggest humanitarian crisis in the world today with millions displaced both inside the country and outside as refugees in neighboring countries of Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, and Turkey. In its seventh year, the armed conflict continues to devastate the country. Even in these circumstances, UNFPA believes that every Syrian woman and girl has the right to sexual and reproductive health (SRH) and protection from gender based violence (GBV). UNFPA's response in Syria is run from different locations: the Syria UNFPA Country Office operating from Damascus, from Amman for cross-border operations from Jordan and from Gaziantep for cross-borders operations from Turkey.
