Nearly a month has passed following the magnitude 7.8 earthquake that struck Syria and Türkiye on 6 February, impacting the governorates of Idlib, Aleppo, Lattakia, and Hama. Another magnitude 6.3 earthquake struck on 20 February resulting in additional damage and sustaining anxiety to affected communities.

This situation report describes the response of UNFPA to provide essential and life-saving services for sexual and reproductive health, prevention and response to gender-based violence and psychosocial support.

To date, a total of $7.8M has been committed to UNFPA’s earthquake response from UNFPA emergency funds, the Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF), Australia, the United Kingdom (Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office), and Norway to cover life saving SRH and GBV services, IARH kits, and dignity kits. This represents 32 percent of UNFPA's Whole of Syria earthquake appeal.
