UNFPA Azerbaijan

Poverty in the Republic of Azerbaijan has dropped sharply, and it has made continued progress in increasing the use of contraceptives and reducing abortions. UNFPA has provided assistance since 1994, helping the Government to incorporate population issues into national development goals. Programmes aim at further broadening access to reproductive health services and improving their quality. They support updating policies and laws to strengthen women’s roles in politics, the economy, and all aspects of social life, including through community mobilization and engagement with authorities and civil society.
