Description and results


March 2018 - GAC’s humanitarian support to the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) in Africa is contributing to meeting the needs of vulnerable women and girls in reproductive health and sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV). This un-earmarked regional funding provides UNFPA the flexibility to respond to emerging needs or underfunded operations throughout the continent. Project activities include: (1) provision of emergency obstetric care and sexual and reproductive health services to vulnerable people, particularly women and girls; (2) provision of health services, equipment and medication, and distribution of dignity kits and reproductive health kits; (3) support for the sexual and reproductive health and rights and gender-based violence needs to vulnerable people, particularly women and girls.

Expected results

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) improved sexual and reproductive health of vulnerable populations; and (2) increased protection from gender-based violence. The expected ultimate outcome is lives saved, suffering alleviated, and human dignity maintained in countries experiencing humanitarian crises or that are food insecure.
