Bauer linked online to the daily UN press conference during his visit to Turkey.
Bauer pointed out that the basic need in the earthquake zone is shelter, which is outside the jurisdiction of UNFPA.
Stating that the solutions offered by the authorities in the region in this context were adversely affected by the recent floods, Bauer noted that the basic needs in their field are reproductive health support.
Noting that women are always the most affected group in crises and natural disasters, Bauer stated that approximately 160,000 women are pregnant in the region and they face serious problems during pregnancy and childbirth due to the damage to the infrastructure.
Noting that only 14 percent of the UN’s 1 billion dollar humanitarian aid call for Turkey was met, Bauer said, “The international community sees that the Turkish government is responding to the crisis. However, the extent of the destruction caused by the earthquake is unpredictable that the international community cooperates with the Turkish government. He needs to fill in the blanks.” used the phrases.
