Initial reports indicate that women in evacuation centers and host communities are experiencing acute needs, for which the MoH requires essential supplies and RH services. Many health facilities and birthing clinics have been destroyed and damaged, with limited access to life-saving maternal and neonatal health services. Violence against women has also been confirmed in the Vanuatu Women’s Counseling Center monitoring missions in Shefa as well as in reports from the medical staff. In addition, the MIRA has indicated high rates of psychosocial distress among the population.
