UNFPA Maldives

Despite a complex territory of 192 islands, the Maldives has achieved rapid development, with substantial declines in fertility and maternal mortality, and stronger systems to respond to gender-based violence. Offering support since 1976, and establishing its Country Office in 1994, UNFPA assists in delivering high-quality, equitable reproductive health services and information, and helps improve access for young people. Aid to use population data has increased capacities to account for population dynamics and improved targeting of public policies. UNFPA engages with parliamentarians, religious institutions, civil society and the media to promote gender equality.
