UNFPA state of world population 2015: shelter from the storm - a transformative agenda for women and girls in a crisis-prone world

Source(s):  United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA)

This report describes the current state of affairs for women and adolescent girls. It outlines that when a crisis strikes, women and girls are disproportionately disadvantaged in that they are at a heightened risk of sexually transmitted infections, including HIV, unintended, unwanted pregnancy, maternal death and illness, sexual- and gender-based violence. In addition they are less prepared or empowered to survive or recover.

A time of burgeoning crisis has demanded a ballooning humanitarian response. While humanitarian “fires” will always need to be fought, particularly as natural disasters accelerate in a time of climate change, much more could be done to cut root causes of crises and reduce underlying vulnerabilities.
