UNFPA Uruguay

Despite the fact that Uruguay has seen a significant decline in the poverty rate since 2005, deep social, territorial, generational ,and ethnic inequalities persist. UNFPA supports the development of comprehensive sexual and reproductive health services across the country by generating evidence, promoting capacity development, and strengthening public policies and civil society. Efforts are also geared towards addressing the needs of adolescents and youth. Data is also being generated to support public policy development in the areas of population and development, gender equality, and gender-based violence.
