UNFPA Sudan West Darfur SitRep No. 01

Publication

SITUATION OVERVIEW

Renewed inter-communal conflict erupted in Kereneik locality in West Darfur in April 2022 with approximately 200 people killed and 100 injured and the reported destruction of homes, villages and medical clinics.1 Fighting spread to Ag Geneina on 25 April 2022 where the situation remained extremely tense, with a continued risk of escalation.

While fighting has since subsided in Kereneik, access to life-saving sexual and reproductive health (SRH), and prevention and response to gender-based violence (GBV) along with other services is diminishing due to the security situation and the underlying limited coverage of health and social services, limited supplies and road blockades. The rural hospital in Kereneik was looted and temporarily closed and injured people sent to Ag Geneina hospital for treatment. The hospital has since reopened and is currently the only health facility providing basic services in Kereneik town.

Two Women and Girls Safe Spaces (WGSS) were reportedly looted and a third burnt down. Displaced women and girls are experiencing movement restrictions and are subject to psychological stress, with a serious gap in available psychosocial support services. Moreover, community-based protection networks are no longer functioning in affected areas. These networks usually play a vital role in providing psychological first aid and act as entry points for the referral of GBV survivors to available services. GBV remains underreported due to fear of stigma, insecurity and lack of services.

Preliminary estimates indicate that 85,000 - 115,000 people are displaced.4 UNFPA estimates that up to 27,600 are women of reproductive age (15-49 y/o); 2,748 women are currently pregnant and in need of access to essential sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services including basic and comprehensive emergency obstetric and neonatal care (B/CEmONC) services; around 400 pregnant women are expected to experience pregnancy and birth-related complications which require C-sections and blood transfusion. Furthermore, over 1,680 beneficiaries are estimated to seek sexually transmitted infections (STIs) prevention and management services and 552 survivors of sexual violence may seek medical care.

REGIONAL HUMANITARIAN ACTION OVERVIEW - ARAB STATES: FUNDING OVERVIEW FOR HUMANITARIAN CONTEXTS

Fact Sheet

The Arab Region is witnessing compounded humanitarian crises, the effects of which have become catastrophic. Some of these are protracted, as in Yemen, Syria, and Libya, while others have become forgotten, as in Somalia and the Palestinian territories. Meanwhile, the COVID-19 pandemic has pushed even more people behind safety lines to face gender-based violence and harmful practices against women and girls, who consistently bear the brunt of the challenges resulting from these crises.

State of World Population 2019

State of World Population Report

Fifty years ago, it was hard for women to obtain contraception and relatively easy to die giving birth. Many women were unable to decide whom and when to marry, and when or whether to have children.

A worldwide movement to give women real choices in life culminated in the 1994 International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD), where a consensus was reached about the links between women’s empowerment, sexual and reproductive health, and rights and sustainable development.
