Pakistan Crisis Puts Pregnant Women At Increased Risk

UNFPA Launches Emergency Appeal for Maternal Health Care for the Displaced

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan and UNITED NATIONS, May 22 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Pakistani women uprooted by fighting in the Swat Valley have critical health needs that relief operations must urgently address, says UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund.

Some 69,000 pregnant women have been displaced since the start of military operations on 27 April. Nearly 6,000 of them are expected to give birth within the next month, with approximately 900 needing surgery to handle pregnancy-related complications, UNFPA estimates.

Responding to the escalating humanitarian crisis, UNFPA is scaling up its support for reproductive health care for the displaced throughout the North-West Frontier Province. As part of the United Nations-led joint funding appeal, to be launched today, UNFPA will ask for $3.9 million to provide comprehensive maternal, neonatal and child health care and psychosocial support, both in camps and nearby medical facilities, through the end of 2009.

"UNFPA is working with partners to provide life-saving services to pregnant women and psychosocial support and basic hygiene supplies for families that have been displaced," said Thoraya Ahmed Obaid, UNFPA's Executive Director. "We are basing our help on the specific needs of women and families, with a focus on safeguarding human dignity."

The massive dislocation in the North-West Frontier Province has put pregnant women at special risk, exacerbating the already severe lack of access to prenatal care, assisted delivery and emergency obstetric care.

Working closely with government authorities, UNFPA is providing reproductive health care in camps in Lower Dir District. Medical workers operating two mobile service units have served
