UNFPA, together with the international community, has been urging for a quick end to the Syrian crisis, warning against further deterioration of the humanitarian situation and calling for the rights of women and girls to be placed at the centre of international efforts for peace, and humanitarian response and recovery in the conflict-hit country.

Over the tragic five-year arc of conflict, as many as 220,000 people have been killed, 7.6 million have been displaced, 12.8 million are in need within Syria, and 4 million have sought refuge in neighbouring countries. The total affected population includes 4 million women and girls of reproductive age, and half a million pregnant women.
