There are currently more than 1.3 million registered refugees in Turkey, Jordan, Lebanon, Iraq and Egypt, according to UNFPA, the UN Population Fund.
The majority are living in host communities, outside of camp settings, which is putting strains on local services.
UNFPA is providing life-saving reproductive health services across the region, including within Syria.
Following a visit to refugee camps in the region, UNFPA Executive Director Dr. Babatunde Osotimehin called for a quick and peaceful resolution of the Syrian conflict.
