Since the onset of the conflict, UNFPA was committed to upholding women’s and girls’ choices and rights among the current and emerging protection and health-related humanitarian needs across Northern Ethiopia. UNFPA’s Preparedness and Response Plan for the Northern Ethiopia crisis focuses on preventing and responding to gender-based violence and bridging protection, gender equality, and MHPSS while building back capacity on sexual and reproductive health and rights in the conflict-affected regions. UNFPA has a presence in Mekelle and Shire (Tigray Region), Semera (Afar Region), and Bahir Dar (Amhara Region) with International and National Surge Capacity Specialists supporting the Northern Ethiopia Response.
