UNFPA is scaling up its response focusing on preventing and responding to gender-based violence, bridging protection, gender equality and MHPSS, and commitment to sexual and reproductive health and rights in the conflict-affected regions in Northern Ethiopia. Activities are being tailored to address the general interruption of SRH/GBV services to restore pre-crisis capacity through government health facilities and the humanitarian partners on the ground. UNFPA has presence in Mekelle (Tigray), Semera (Afar) and Bahir Dar (Amhara) with 17 deployed International Surge Capacity Specialists and 7 National Specialists for the Tigray Response. A new office in Shire will be operational at the end of the month.
