UNFPA Bosnia & Herzegovina

Bosnia and Herzegovina has emerged from post-conflict to a period of more stability and aims to eventually join the European Union. Challenges include: high unemployment, weak social protection, poor data, an ageing population, low fertility rates and marked gender inequalities. Key priorities for UNFPA support, which began in 1995, include the development of Reproductive Health Policy, prevention of cervical cancer, equal access to reproductive health services for youth, the strengthening of the social and demographic data collection, and prevention and management of gender-based violence.

  • Indicators that are marked ‘not achieved’ could imply any of the following conditions:
    • The country may have achieved the result without the support of UNFPA
    • The country has not targeted the given indicator during the 2014-2017 period
    • UNFPA is supporting this area of work, but the result has not yet been achieved
