UNFPA Somalia Humanitarian Situation Report - 29 September 2020

UNFPA Somalia and its partners continue to provide lifesaving sexual and reproductive health (SRH) and gender-based violence (GBV) services in most affected locations in the country to support the priority needs for vulnerable women and girls. The UN agency and its partners also support the COVID-19 risk communication and community engagement, provides personal protective equipment (PPE) and supports the safety of patients and health workers through strengthening infection, prevention and control.

UNFPA Somalia has updated and activated its business continuity plan to ensure time-critical activities and functions related to managing the safety and security of staff despite the COVID-19 crisis and restrictions on physical movement in Somalia. The UNFPA country office has established systems and tools, including e-signatures and e-filing system, required to continue signing work plans and disbursing cash in a paperless fashion.
