Adolescent Girls in Disaster & Conflict
PDF File Size: 1.52 MB | Download   
Adolescent girls are overlooked in turbulent times of disaster and
conflict. Traumatized, constrained by tradition, torn from school and
family structures and familiar social networks they can be lost in the
crowd in a refugee camp or disrupted community. We must look harder
to see the realities of girls aged 10 to 19, include them in humanitarian
programming, and plan interventions that restore health and hope at a
critical time between childhood and adulthood.

Millions of adolescent girls are in need of humanitarian assistance –
displaced by conflict or uprooted by disaster. A crisis heightens their
vulnerability to gender-based violence, unwanted pregnancy, HIV
infection, maternal death and disability, early and forced marriage, rape,
trafficking, and sexual exploitation and abuse. To meet their needs and
respect their rights, UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund, provides
operational, programmatic and technical support for adolescent sexual
and reproductive health (ASRH) as part of its humanitarian programming.
