UNFPA Turkmenistan

Turkmenistan is an upper middle-income country that has experienced steady economic growth. UNFPA assistance began in 1992 with the supply of reproductive health commodities and training. Programmes today continue to strengthen reproductive health care and promote outreach to young people. UNFPA also helps to integrate reproductive health in national emergency preparedness and population issues in development planning. Legal reviews and strengthened human rights protections, among other measures, aim to advance gender equality.
