UNFPA Guatemala

Active in Guatemala since 1969, UNFPA works to strengthen national capacities to ensure access to sexual and reproductive rights, and prevent maternal mortality and adolescent pregnancy. Programmes support the country to integrate family planning, comprehensive sexuality education, and the prevention of gender-based violence, especially sexual violence, at the highest levels in the Specific Cabinets of Women and Youth. UNFPA also supports national efforts to improve investments for indigenous adolescent girls to plan their future and achieve their full potential.
