UPP is active in Iraq since 1991 and is regularly registered at National and Kurdistan Region levels. The main UPP offices in Iraq are in Erbil and Baghdad.

This will be done through the direct provision of specialized GBV services and community-based support mechanisms in Nineveh, and Kirkuk with a strong emphasis on building partnerships with and between different sectors and working with communities on prevention and risk mitigation, providing comprehensive training to GBV and non GBV service providers (e.g. case managers, psychologists, medics and paramedics, lawyers), to build and strengthen a multi sectoral response for GBV survivors at the community level.
