Geneva, Thursday 15 March 2018
Humanitarian access has deteriorated in seven countries over the past six months, according to the Humanitarian Access Overview report released today by ACAPS.

During 2017, almost 38,900 refugees were submitted by UNHCR for resettlement1 to 25 countries in Europe,2 36% more than during 2016 and over three times greater than the average rate of 12,400 submissions per year during the last decade.
Between 2007 and 2016, Europe’s proportion of resettlement sub-missions globally has increased from approximately 9% to more than 18%, and in 2017 reached 52%. This is primarily due to a significant decrease globally in new submissions for resettlement, most notably to the United States of America.

Foreword by the Executive Director
Every woman has the right to decide whether or when she will become pregnant, and the right to give birth safely and live free from violence.
Yet every day, millions of women and girls whose lives have been upended by wars, conflicts or natural disasters are denied these rights. When we speak of leaving no one behind and reaching the furthest behind first, there can be no more compelling example of exactly whom we are speaking about.

Correction: An earlier version of this news release published on 29 January 2018 reported that 26 percent of the population in Ukraine currently faces acute hunger. The correct information is that 2.6 percent (rpt: 2.6 percent) of the total population in Ukraine is in need of food assistance. The error was due to a typographic error in the report, which has now been corrected.
