UNFPA Albania

Since 1989, UNFPA has assisted Albania to improve reproductive and sexual health, alongside population and development strategies and policies. Key programmes contribute to public sector reform for accession to the European Union (EU), one of Albania's main priorities. UNFPA also assists government counterparts in updating policy frameworks, developing higher quality services, enhancing standardized oversight mechanisms, and fostering a more effective use of data in planning and policymaking. With nearly half the population under the age of 32, initiatives targeting young people are a key priority, as is the active promotion of gender equality, in line with the EU's founding values.
