Ensuring provision of lifesaving sexual and reproductive health services to women and adolescents affected by Tropical Cyclone Harold (20-RR-FPA-024)

Project overview

The main objective of this project is to reduce preventable maternal mortality and morbidity among those women affected by Tropical Cyclone Harold in five affected locations. With CERF funds, UNFPA 1) distributes reproductive health kits and protective gear to selected health centers and clinics, 2) provides basic reproductive health services by establishing temporary Medical Tents and community outreach and 3) provides training to health workers in disseminating information to women of reproductive age and pregnant women on pregnancy and COVID-19, among other activities. 7,800 people (7,000 women and 800 girls) will benefit from this project.
