Myanmar Humanitarian Emergency

Myanmar faces multiple overlapping humanitarian needs caused by natural disasters, inter-communal tensions and protracted armed conflicts. Internal displacement continues due to conflict in Kachin, Kayin, Shan and Rakhine states. Women in conflict-affected areas are at high risk of gender-based violence, trafficking and harmful traditional practices. Crowded conditions in displacement camps also heighten health risks. Movement restrictions and insecurity constrain women's access to services, including lifesaving sexual and reproductive health services. Together with partners, UNFPA provides maternal health and family planning services, including through more than 200 mobile clinics, and supports women and girls' safe spaces in Myanmar.
