Türkiye hosts more refugees than any other nation – surpassing 4 million – a record held for the past five years.

As of 2019, UNFPA established 35 Women and Girls Safe Spaces, soon to be run by the Government within primary health care, to provide services including mental health and psychosocial support (MHPSS). In 2018 through mid-2019, more than 143,000 refugees received mental health and psychosocial support (MHPSS) services, including LGBTI persons, sex workers and people living with HIV.
