UNFPA Venezuela

While the Constitution guarantees sexual and reproductive rights, maternal mortality in Venezuela remains in the medium range. Active in Venezuela since 2003, UNFPA backs government investments in the systematic procurement and distribution of contraceptives, and promotes young people’s access to services and comprehensive education given high teenage pregnancy rates. Programmes also help curb sexually transmitted infections such as HIV, and bolster responses to domestic violence and the sexual abuse of children and adolescents.
