Over 12 million people – more than a quarter of the Ukrainian population – have fled their homes since the start of the war. With ongoing reports of rape and other forms of gender-based violence (GBV) in Ukraine, Dr. Natalia Kanem, UNFPA Executive Director released a statement calling for urgent action to protect the rights of women and girls. UNFPA signed an agreement with the National Health Insurance Company in Moldova to provide direct financial support to the national health system in order to cover the SRH needs of Ukraine refugee women, ensuring their access to free-of-charge services.
