The escalation of the armed conflict and political instability in Yemen remained challenges for the implementation of GBV activities.
Obtaining permits took longer than expected, which caused delays in the implementation of activities.
The UNFPA’s ‘My Safety, Our Future’ programme aimed to scale up current responses in the most affected areas in severe need of GBV services.
GBV survivors initially reported incidents to community leaders, the police, hospital or a hotline.
Better health conditions in nine prisons, due to improved living conditions for male and female detainees, resulted in the containment of a cholera outbreak and cholera-free prisons.
Within the theme of security and rule of law, numerous dialogues on peace and stability were conducted inside and outside Yemen with different stakeholders, focusing on strengthening inclusiveness capacity building.
UNFPA provides a multi-sectoral response to GBV survivors and women at risk.
GBV services provided by UNFPA include medical, legal and psychological support.
The referral officer then provided emergency services, such as shelter and medical, psychological and legal support.
Gender Based Violence survivors received medical and psychosocial assistance. Access to clean drinking water and the establishment of sanitation services have been a priority.
In terms of motherhood and family planning, health services have continued to function in many areas of Yemen.
Under the programme, health facilities were contracted to provide motherhood services.
Women and girls gained access to ante-natal and post-natal care, as well as safe delivery.
