March 2018: During conflicts, natural disasters and other emergencies, sexual and reproductive health needs must not be overlooked. It is essential to ensure life-saving interventions as related to reproductive health services and protection from and response to sexual and gender based violence, Through GAC's support, the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) seek to provide support to vulnerable people, particularly women and girls in Bangladesh, Nigeria, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), the Central African Republic (CAR), in Yemen and Libya. Project activities include providing them with: (a) emergency obstetric care and sexual and reproductive health services; (b) protection from and response to gender-based violence; and (c) health services, equipment and medication, dignity kits and reproductive health kits.

Expected results 

The expected immediate outcomes for this project include: (1) increased capacity to prevent and address gender-based violence; and (2) strengthened capacities to provide high-quality, integrated information and services for family planning, comprehensive maternal health, sexually transmitted infection and HIV, that are responsive to emergencies. The expected intermediate outcome is reduced vulnerability of crisis-affected people, especially women and children.
