Of the 15.8 million people affected in Türkiye, 1.7 million are refugees, 2.6 million are youth aged 15-24, and 4.1 million are women of reproductive age. UNFPA estimates that 226,000 women are currently pregnant, with 25,000 expected to give birth within a month.  

  • UNFPA is scaling up its services to reach those in dire need by engaging more mobile teams in earthquake response activities.
  • During this reporting period, around 8,900  individuals were reached with life-saving sexual and reproductive health and gender-based violence support including dignity and maternity kits in Türkiye’s earthquake-affected areas. 
  • UNFPA’s appeal for the earthquake response is $19.7 million with the aim to reach 1.5 million individuals needing life-saving humanitarian support. To date, 23 per cent of the appeal is funded.
