On April 15, 2023, the Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF) and Rapid Support Forces (RSF) began a series of attacks on each other on the right to rule the country. The armed fighting is concentrated in urban centres, mostly affecting Khartoum and areas along the east-west corridor of Kassala to West Darfur. Violence continues to escalate despite the ceasefire that was announced on April 24, 2023. Hundreds have already been reported killed with thousands injured in the hostilities, in parallel with a large migration crisis that has seen individual fleeing externally and internally.

According to UNFPA, over 80,100 of the recently displaced people in Sudan are women and girls of reproductive age (15-49 years old), among whom nearly 8,000 women are pregnant and in need of essential sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services, including basic and comprehensive emergency obstetric and neonatal care services.
