The humanitarian situation in south-western of Madagascar is critical due to two consecutive years of drought. The 2015/16 El-Niño phenomenon has impacted food security with over a million people affected. UNFPA is part of the overall country emergency response, focusing on strengthening the health system. This includes provision of sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services. UNFPA is also providing protection through prevention and response to gender based violence (GBV).
