Ending Sexual and Gender-Based Violence in Humanitarian Crises

This conference will be hosted by Norway, Iraq, Somalia, United Arab Emirates, UN OCHA, UNFPA, ICRC and other partners, and will take place in Oslo, Norway, on 23-24 May 2019.

Sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) in humanitarian crises has wide-ranging negative consequences for survivors and their communities. The humanitarian response to SGBV has improved in recent years, but much remains to be done.

End Fistula Day

We can end fistula!

May 23 marks the International Day to End Obstetric Fistula, a key date in the UNFPA calendar, where we mark progress towards addressing fistula and renewing our pledge to end fistula in Asia-Pacific and globally.

Obstetric fistula is one of the most serious and tragic injuries that can occur during childbirth. It is a hole between the birth canal and the bladder or rectum caused by prolonged, obstructed labour without treatment.
