Ethiopia Humanitarian Emergency

Ethiopia is facing high levels of internal displacement and widespread food insecurity, driven by intercommunal violence, droughts and floods. The country is also hosting the second-largest number of refugees in Africa. Lack of access to safe water and sanitation in displacement sites and in communities affected by droughts and floods has increased the risk of disease outbreaks. For women and girls, gender-based violence (GBV) also poses a major concern. UNFPA's response focuses on maternal and newborn health, family planning as well as GBV prevention and response. UNFPA also distributes dignity kits to respond to the hygiene needs of crisis-affected people in Ethiopia.
