Nigeria Humanitarian Emergency

UNFPA Nigeria

Since 2009, the crisis caused by Boko Haram in northeastern Nigeria has affected millions of people with widespread displacements and violations of human rights. Protection of the affected population is of the utmost importance, and emergency and life-saving assistance remains critical in the hardest-hit areas. UNFPA focuses its efforts on providing sexual and reproductive health services and supporting mechanisms to prevent and respond to gender-based violence.
