The conflict in the Central Sahel region, one of the world’s fastest-growing emergencies, has created a protection crisis for women and girls. Escalating violence and displacement have heightened the risk of gender-based violence and harmful practices and disrupted access to basic services, including sexual and reproductive health services. Key areas of UNFPA’s humanitarian action in Burkina Faso include GBV prevention and response, family planning, support to health facilities providing emergency obstetric care, and other SRH services, including adolescent- and youth-friendly services.
