UNFPA, with support from the Government of Japan, has implemented a project in Jordan to ensure life-saving services are available and used by refugees living in Azraq camp, with particular focus on women and girls. This project complements existing health and psychosocial interventions by establishing a sexual and reproductive health (SRH) unit in the primary healthcare facilities and women and girls’ safe spaces in Azraq camp, providing for essential SRH services in addition to ensuring comprehensive care for survivors of GBV. UNFPA is also ensuring a community outreach and education component of its sexual and reproductive healthcare and GBV program.
