UNFPA Mozambique

Active in Mozambique since 1979, UNFPA is currently supporting programmes linked to governance, social issues and the economy, under the One UN Action Plan. Recent achievements include new national policies on family planning and successes in the prevention of HIV. While maternal mortality has been significantly reduced in the country, it remains high. UNFPA works with parliamentary groups to strengthen laws on women’s rights, and helps extend quality integrated sexual and reproductive health care. Programmes also foster economic empowerment through training in life skills and other initiatives.
