UNFPA Ethiopia Humanitarian Response: Situation Report - April 2023

Resource date: May 2023

Publisher: UNFPA Ethiopia


More than 20 million men, women and children across Ethiopia continue to depend on humanitarian assistance due to conflict, displacement, disease outbreaks and climatic shocks such as severe drought and floods. Persistent food insecurity in Northern Ethiopia, as well as consecutive hazards in drought and flood affected areas, are having detrimental consequences leading to health risks and increased protection concerns - with over 10 million people estimated to be in need of protection services across the country.

Emerging situations such as a dengue fever outbreak and the ongoing influx of thousands of displaced people escaping from violence in neighboring Sudan and Somalia will continue to disproportionately affect women and girls in an already strained health and protection system due to overlapping crises and lack of sufficient funds and resources.

UNFPA is working in Ethiopia with partners to provide lifesaving services for sexual and reproductive health, and prevention and response to gender-based violence, as part of interagency efforts.
