UNFPA Mozambique Fact Sheet for the Northern Province Humanitarian Crisis

More than a year after Cyclone Kenneth's landfall in May 2019, the humanitarian situation in Cabo Delgado province has deteriorated due to consecutive climatic shocks, public health emergencies such as COVID-19, and growing insecurity. This has led to significant displacement, disruption of livelihoods, and lack of access to basic services. Almost 530,000 people have been displaced in Cabo Delgado, Nampula and Niassa.

UNFPA, working with the Government of Mozambique, has provided humanitarian assistance to more than 230,000 people in Cabo Delgado, with a focus on sexual and reproductive health and response to gender-based violence.
