Since gaining independence in 1974, Guinea-Bissau has experienced chronic instability, armed conflict and socioeconomic challenges. Poverty is pervasive and rates of maternal mortality and HIV infection are high. To combat these issues, UNFPA and partners work to provide comprehensive sexual and reproductive health services and promote respect for the reproductive rights of women and youth.
