June 2019 – Humanitarian needs stemming from the crises in Syria and Iraq remain significant throughout the Middle East. Continued violence in Syria raises little prospects for the voluntary, safe, sustainable and dignified return of over 5.6 million refugees in the region. Internally displaced persons range in the millions in Syria and Iraq, and refugees facing protracted displacement in host countries continue to face acute humanitarian needs in Jordan and Lebanon. With GAC’s support, the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) supports the coordination of humanitarian responses to sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) and sexual and reproductive health (SRH) across the Middle East, namely in Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon and Syria. Project activities include: (1) improving , informing and implementing cluster SGBV and SRH services and strategies; (2) monitoring and evaluating the performance of the GBV and SRH responses, including producing informational and analytical products; and (3) building the capacity of frontline, local and national SGBV-response and SRH actors to provide quality SGBV and SRH responses.
