Conflict and displacement in Iraq have acutely increased the vulnerability of women and girls and put them at higher risk of violence, including sexual exploitation. In 2017, UNFPA ensured the delivery of integrated quality reproductive health services that meet the needs of populations at risk and provided services and trainings to mitigate and respond to gender-based violence and harmful practices, with a special focus on vulnerable women in humanitarian settings.
