This World Humanitarian Day, we call for global solidarity and stand together with everyone affected by crisis. We unite as one humanity. We share a common responsibility to reach those furthest behind, help the most vulnerable, and support the more than 130 million people who need humanitarian assistance, one in four of whom are women and adolescent girls of childbearing age. In response to today’s humanitarian challenges, UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund, provides life-saving services, supplies and information for sexual and reproductive health and prevents and responds to gender-based violence.

Welcome to the first UNFPA Humanitarian Update. In this issue, the focus is on UNFPA supplies to ensure sexual and reproductive health and response to gender-based violence for women and girls affected by crisis. We also have a special feature on Zika, and links to top stories and upcoming events. ENJOY!
