Myanmar Humanitarian Emergency

Myanmar faces urgent humanitarian needs. Hundreds of thousands have been internally displaced after inter-communal violence intensified in 2012. A large portion of those displaced identify as Rohingya. Along with experiencing brutal physical violence, sexual violence against women and girls has also been rampant during attacks and in camps. The country is also prone to natural disasters and suffers from the effects of El Nino. Residents of rural communities are often unable to access life-saving maternal care during the monsoon season, and are furthermore overlooked by developmental efforts due to their isolation. UNFPA and partners strive to combat these issues by providing sexual and reproductive health to even the most far-flung individuals and by supporting mechanisms to prevent and respond to gender-based violence.
