Sudan Humanitarian Emergency

Midwifery students beneath the UNFPA banner.

Despite some progress in the political situation in Sudan, reflected in the formation of a transitional government in 2019, which has created high hopes and optimism among the Sudanese people, the humanitarian situation remains precarious. The protracted crisis is characterised by intercommunal clashes, armed violence, displacement, food insecurity, disease outbreaks and high inflation. Sudan also hosts over a million refugees, most of whom rely on humanitarian assistance to meet their basic needs. The conflict in Sudan has placed women and girls at greater risk of harmful practices and gender-based violence (GBV). Yet, GBV prevention and response services, including clinical management of rape, are unavailable in the vast majority of affected regions. Most facilities providing lifesaving reproductive health services, including emergency obstetric and neonatal care, are not fully functioning either. UNFPA provides sexual and reproductive health (SRH) and GBV services to affected women and young people in Sudan and leads the SRH working groups in three states in the region of Darfur.
