UNFPA Whole of Syria Situation Report #6: Türkiye-Syria Earthquake - 11 March 2023

Resource date: Mar 2023

Publisher: UNFPA


In response to the devastating earthquakes that struck Türkiye and Syria in February, UNFPA and its partners are responding in both countries to save lives and reduce suffering. This situation report describes the UNFPA humanitarian response across Syria.

UNFPA and its partners are working to meet basic sexual and reproductive health needs and ensure that the minimum initial service package for sexual and reproductive health in crisis is available. UNFPA continues to prioritise the continuity of services, with a fundamental component of the response being the procurement of inter-agency reproductive health kits containing essential medical equipment, drugs, and consumables required for a life-saving, integrated response for sexual and reproductive health and for the prevention, risk mitigation and response to gender-based violence.

To date, a total of $8.3M 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 33.6 percent of UNFPA's Whole of Syria earthquake appeal.
