UNFPA Uganda

Uganda has a large number of refugee population. There are 1 million refugees from South Sudan, of which 84% are women and children. Uganda also hosts 300,000 refugees from the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Burundi. In 2018, the refugee influx is expected to grow, and reach 1.8 million by the end of the year, with a potential increase in movement between the countries of asylum. The refugees face food insecurity, malnutrition, and limited access to health care, sanitation, and livelihood opportunities.Young women and girls are left to resort to negative coping mechanisms such as transactional and survival sex that put them at high risk of HIV infection and gender-based violence (GBV). Since January 2018, UNFPA has trained 211 personnel on emergency obstetric and newborn care and reached 41,067 people. UNFPA will continue to lead the GBV working group in Uganda.
