UNFPA Somalia continues to prioritize the integration of services for sexual and reproductive health and rights, gender-based violence prevention and response, and mental health and psychosocial support response to the many core needs of women and adolescent girls as well as men and adolescent boys affected by crises. The capacity of UNFPA partners is strengthened to support GBV survivors, who, typically contend with both mental and physical repercussions. Responding to these issues requires health facilities and mobile clinics to provide sensitive services to support maternal and newborn health, birth-spacing options and the clinical management of rape. Safe spaces for women, girls and young people, as well as one-stop centres for survivors of GBV, should offer mental health and psychosocial services.
