UNFPA has been addressing the needs of women and girls in emergency contexts since its inception, through life-saving reproductive health and protection-focused actions. UNFPA shares the mandate for coordination of gender-based violence (GBV) interventions in non-refugee humanitarian settings with UNICEF, as co-lead of the GBV Area of Responsibility of the Global Protection Cluster. UNFPA’s activities in this space globally, and on the ground in key emergency contexts such as CAR, South Sudan, Syria, Pakistan, and Iraq, include both program implementation and field-level GBV “sub-cluster” leadership. These efforts link closely with UNFPA’s global leadership on reproductive health in emergencies and its mandate to address the needs of women and adolescent girls worldwide.
