UNFPA Serbia

On its path towards accession to the European Union, Serbia is undergoing structural reforms. Despite marked economic growth, unemployment has increased as a result of the global economic crisis, and affecting vulnerable populations such as the Roma, persons with disabilities, youth, women and rural residents. UNFPA’s partnership began in 2006, and has focused on supporting gender equality, and reproductive health and rights. It fosters engagement on issues related to youth, ageing, and links between population and development. Through assistance to non-governmental organizations, UNFPA supports local actions to meet reproductive health and related needs.
