UNFPA Syria continues to respond to the aftermath of the hostilities in East Ghouta. With more than 158,000 people displaced, the situation remains alarming for civilians staying in the collective shelters, most of which do not have the capacity or infrastructure to accommodate the large number of people arriving.

UNFPA Syria is on the ground to meet the dire needs and to respond to the rapidly changing situation in the Afrin and East Ghouta area. UNFPA and its partners continue to provide integrated reproductive health and gender-based violence services, including family planning supplies and counselling, gynaecology consultations, antenatal care including supplements, post-natal care, psychosocial support and referral for deliveries and comprehensive emergency obstetric and neonatal care.
