Congo Humanitarian Emergency

UNFPA Republic of Congo

Since December 2013, thousands of refugees have fled armed clashes in the Central African Republic and found refuge in the Republic of Congo. As well as putting stress on an already weak health system, refugees are more vulnerable to violence and lack access to life-saving medical care. UNFPA's humanitarian efforts target young people and female refugees through a comprehensive package of sexual and reproductive health services and through establishing mechanisms to prevent and respond to gender-based violence.
