How you can make a difference:
UNFPA is the lead UN agency for delivering a world where every pregnancy is wanted, every childbirth is safe and every young person’s potential is fulfilled. The Fund operates globally since 1969 in more than 150 countries and territories. UNFPA focuses on women and young people, because these are the groups whose rights are often compromised UNFPA has been active in Ukraine since 1997.
The ongoing war in Ukraine continues to take a toll on the lives of an estimated 14.5 million people in need of health assistance and an estimated 17.7 million people requiring protection assistance and services inside Ukraine. The estimated number of internally displaced people is 6.9 million, and more than 7.5 million refugees are recorded in European countries. As of 17 October, WHO had verified 541 attacks on health facilities; access to health care remains extremely challenging due to severe service disruptions, security concerns, restricted mobility, broken supply chains and mass displacement.
