UNFPA Togo

Active in Togo since 1972, UNFPA programmes help build capacities to provide emergency obstetric and newborn care, reliable family planning, and sexual and reproductive health services for youth. Maternal mortality in the country is decreasing slowly, but contraceptive prevalence remains low, mostly due to limited health services, poverty and gender inequality. Efforts to prevent gender-based violence include advocacy against early marriage and programs for students in schools. UNFPA also assists in developing skills to analyse demographic data.
