World Humanitarian Day

World Humanitarian Day is a time to recognize those who face danger and adversity in order to help others. It is also an opportunity to celebrate the spirit that inspires humanitarian work around the world.

UNFPA works closely with governments, sister UN agencies, community-based organizations and other partners to ensure that reproductive health is integrated into emergency responses.

UNFPA also deploys hygiene supplies, obstetric and family planning supplies, trained personnel, and other support to vulnerable populations, and works to ensure the needs of women and young people are served through both the emergency and the reconstruction phases.
