A multi–sectoral Rapid Needs Assessment (RNA) report for Balochistan is compiled and finalized by OCHA with the input support from sector leads. UNFPA provided analysis of the RNA exercise to RH and GBV sub-sectors under Health and Protection, respectively.

The report highlights needs and priorities for SRH, protection/GBV, and Protection from Sexual Exploitation and Abuse (PSEA), among other key sectoral priorities, including food, nutrition, shelter, and overall health.

UNFPA has procured 8,311 dignity kits (DKs), 7,411 Newborn Baby Kits (NBBKs), and 6,412 Clean Delivery Kits (CDKs) for immediate delivery to Sindh, Balochistan, KP, and Punjab for flood response. Distribution of these kits has commenced.

UNFPA has mobilized USD 120,000 from core resources and has initiated a procurement process of 7,000 DKs, NBBKs, and CDKs, which are expected to be delivered within the next 7 to 10 days. The same resources are used to procure hospital tents in flood-affected areas, which are also expected to be delivered within 7 to 10 days.

UNFPA has initiated an online survey on protection sector services mapping to identify gaps and priorities with sector members. The preliminary findings from the online survey will be informed to the protection sector. The RH and GBV working groups are effectively functional in close coordination with the Departments of Health, Disaster Management Authorities, and Women Development Departments.
