Sudan Humanitarian Emergency

Midwifery students beneath the UNFPA banner.
UNFPA Sudan

The humanitarian needs in Sudan stem from new and protracted population displacements due to conflict. These conflicts have affected access to basic services and disrupted the livelihoods and food security of many people. In many areas, food insecurity is also exacerbated by adverse climatic phenomena, including El Nino. Moreover, refugees originating mainly from Eritrea and South Sudan continue to stretch already limited resources. The priority of the humanitarian community remains to ensure that affected individuals receive the necessary assistance and protection crucial to their survival. UNFPA and partners support this priority by providing life-saving sexual and reproductive health services and by supporting mechanisms to prevent and respond to gender-based violence.
