Syria is experiencing the biggest humanitarian crisis in the world today. Approximately 13.5 million displaced and vulnerable people are currently in need inside Syria, and nearly 5 million people are living as refugees in neighbouring countries. As with all humanitarian emergencies, women and girls are among the most vulnerable. Hundreds of thousands of Syrian women, including refugees and those still in Syria, are pregnant and in need of maternal care.
UNFPA, with its partners, is deploying dignity kits, reproductive health kits and equipment, and medical personnel to assist affected communities. UNFPA is also supporting emergency obstetric care and psychosocial support, and is conducting outreach programmes for youth.
