In 2019, Namibia experienced one its driest seasons ever, resulting in severe drought, which has left hundreds of thousands of people in need of humanitarian assistance. UNFPA has been implementing interventions aimed at preventing gender-based violence and sexual exploitation and promoting health, autonomy and dignity of women and adolescent girls in the regions of East and West Kavango, Ohangwena, Omusati, Kunene and Zambezi. This includes, among other activities, provision of dignity kits to meet urgent hygiene needs, reproductive health (RH) kits containing key items to provide appropriate RH care as well as training to local health sector officials on the Minimum Initial Service Package (MISP) to respond to RH needs at the onset of an emergency.
