Gender-based violence at the gathering sites continues to be an issue with alleged gang rape, physical assault, harassment, looting as well as humiliation. The alleged cases are currently not being addressed by survivors, as fear of stigma prevents them from seeking services and West Darfur appears to have the worst record in survivors seeking treatment compared to other Darfur states.

The current number of pregnant is reported by State Ministry of Health staff on the ground as 3442 and there are 10,800 women of reproductive age that are in need of reproductive health services. As per the most recent available information, approximately, the number of pregnant women who are 9 months pregnant and expected to deliver soon is estimated to be around 785 in all 41 displacement sites.
