Yemen is facing the world’s largest humanitarian crisis, with 24 million people in need of humanitarian assistance, including some six million women and girls of reproductive age. Reported cases of gender-based violence (GBV) are rising. UNFPA supports the provision of psychosocial support, legal aid, access to safe spaces/shelters and referrals to health services. GBV services are being integrated with emergency reproductive health services. In 2018, 83 mobile teams, 23 safe spaces, six women’s shelters and three specialized psychological care centres delivered vital mental health and psychosocial support (MHPSS) reaching more than 50,000 people.
