Burkina Faso Humanitarian Emergency

UNFPA Burkina Faso

Burkina Faso is affected by seasonal and chronic vulnerabilities including floods and droughts as well as a rapidly deteriorating security situation, which has forced hundreds of thousands of people to flee their homes. Humanitarian needs have increased very rapidly since 2019. Food insecurity is high and access to basic services such as health and education is severely restricted. More than half of internally displaced people do not have access to safe shelter. UNFPA continues to provide sexual and reproductive health and gender-based violence services to protect the health and dignity of women, girls and adolescents affected by the crisis.
