UNFPA Cote D'Ivoire

With a recent history of conflict, Côte d'Ivoire has some of the highest rates of population growth and maternal mortality in sub-Saharan Africa. Almost half its citizens live in poverty. Since 1972, UNFPA has supported measures to improve living conditions, including through national censuses to identify development needs. It has helped enact national population, reproductive health, and gender equality policies. Current assistance aims to increase the provision and use of quality reproductive health services, including family planning, and greater national capabilities to operationalize population and gender equality policies.
