Overview

In December 2013, violence broke out in South Sudan’s capital, Juba, and spread rapidly across the country.
Even before the crisis, the country had one of the highest maternal death rates in the world. The conflict has further deteriorated the health system, leaving many pregnant women without access to basic care.

UNFPA and partners are providing life-saving reproductive health services to populations affected by the crisis, and are working to establish mechanisms to prevent and address gender-based violence.
