Mauritania Humanitarian Emergency

A young mother holds her child.

The key drivers of humanitarian crisis in Mauritania are food insecurity, refugees from Mali, and weak health structures. Over a million people are estimated to be food insecure and over 50,000 are refugees. UNFPA provides sexual and reproductive health (SRH) and works to prevent and respond to gender based violence (GBV).
