In  Burundi, the political crisis continues to negatively impact the life of  population. Humanitarian needs  continue to increase, driven by the macro and socio-economic crisis, political instability and climatic hazards with livelihoods, food security, health, nutrition, social cohesion and protection being the most affected. With focus on vulnerable women, girls and youth, UNFPA's efforts are directed at providing sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services, and services to prevent and respond to gender based violence (GBV). While over  400 000 burundians fled in neighburing countries, around 11 000 returned , mostly from Tanzania as of September . Burundi is also hosting refugees from neighboring countries such Democratic Republic of Congo.
