January 2019 – Following the outbreak of violence in Northern Rakhine State in August 2017, more than 735,000 Rohingya crossed from Myanmar into Bangladesh over a period of several months.These refugees joined some 200,000 to 300,000 Rohingya already in Bangladesh following earlier waves of displacement. The speed and scale of the influx has resulted in significant humanitarian needs With GAC’s support, CARE Canada is helping to meet the essential sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) and gender-based violence (GBV) protection needs of Rohingya refugees affected by this crisis. Project activities include: (1) providing SRHR services through static and mobile health clinics; (2) providing safe spaces to deliver GBV protection services to women and girls; (3) promoting community awareness and engagement initiatives for GBV protection and mitigation; and (4) strengthening and updating referral pathways.
