UNFPA Sri Lanka

Despite years of internal conflict and the lasting impact of the 2004 tsunami, Sri Lanka has made great progress in improving the status, health and education of women and has recently become a middle–income country. Its dramatic reductions in maternal mortality are a model for other countries and its slowly growing population is expected to stabilize by 2024. Since 1969, UNFPA has partnered with Sri Lanka to improve access and availability of quality reproductive health services and information for women, men and young people.
