As the conflict in Syria enters its 10th year, women and girls continue to bear the brunt of the crisis, struggling to survive, to stay safe and to access essential health care.
Yet humanitarian need continues to increase as the conflict drags on and communities grapple with the deteriorating economy and the COVID-19 pandemic. Reproductive health services have been severely disrupted. Restrictions on movement and lack of skilled birth attendants have dramatically reduced access to basic maternal and newborn health-care services.
UNFPA is providing humanitarian assistance to women and girls including dignity kits, maternal health services, and rehabilitating medical facilities. To combat the shortage in skilled health workers, UNFPA is training midwives and birth attendants to ensure pregnant women and new mothers receive the care they need.
Donate now to ensure that vulnerable women and girls impacted by the conflict in Syria get life-saving health care.
