Women and girls face extraordinary hardships in humanitarian settings; they endure grave risks and many are thrust into poverty. But they can also face another, more intimate, hardship – the effects of displacement on their sexual and reproductive health and rights.

UNFPA, as part of UN interagency efforts and in collaboration with local and international NGOs, continues to support the Government of the United Republic of Tanzania to provide regular and quality sexual and reproductive health care, including access to voluntary family planning and maternal and child health services, to displaced and local communities in Kigoma Region, reaching “the furthest behind”.
