UNFPA Peru

Peru has achieved economic growth and relative political stability, but still needs to expedite poverty reduction, and close wide gaps among regions and population groups. Active in Peru since 1972, UNFPA supports regions that are lagging behind to improve the delivery of comprehensive reproductive health services, including to young people. The programmes help decision makers develop capacities to use data disaggregated by gender, ethnicity and other parameters in enacting regional population plans, as well as to implement emergency preparedness and response strategies. UNFPA also advocates for public policies to advance gender equality.
