STORYLINE:

More than 13 metric tons of desperately needed reproductive health supplies, medicines and equipment have been shipped to Ukraine by UNFPA, the United Nations sexual and reproductive health agency, as stocks at health facilities run dangerously low one month after the Russian invasion.

The supplies, which include lifesaving medicines for the management of obstetric emergencies and treatment for the clinical management of rape, will support service providers at health centres in Kyiv, Kharkiv, Dnipro and Zaporizhzhia. They are sufficient to cover the immediate reproductive health needs of a population of 500,000 people.

At the start of the war, there were an estimated 256,000 pregnant women in Ukraine with 80,000 expected to give birth in the next three months. While the situation remains volatile, UNFPA is working with its teams on the ground to find solutions for access and scale up the delivery of life-saving reproductive health and protection services in conflict-affected areas.

Three fully stocked and staffed mobile clinics, including one maternity clinic, have also been dispatched to Ukraine to support safe births, access to voluntary contraception, and specialized services for survivors of sexual and gender-based violence, including post-rape treatment.

An additional batch of supplies, including hygiene items and sanitary pads, will be dispatched to partners for distribution to women and girls.

UNFPA is working around the clock to reach women and girls as humanitarian needs increase by the hour, and as soon as access and the security situation permits, will expand its operations to the hardest-hit areas.
