UNFPA Equatorial Guinea

Despite rapid economic growth from oil and gas revenues, 70 per cent of Equatorial Guinea’s population still lives in poverty. Maternal mortality remains high and more than a third of girls aged 15 to 19 are already mothers. Active in the country since 1980, UNFPA helps strengthen national capacities to provide emergency obstetric and newborn care, as well as essential sexual and reproductive health services for marginalized adolescents and young people. UNFPA works with national institutions to amend laws to protect women’s rights, and to produce high quality demographic data on population dynamics, youth, gender equality, and sexual- and reproductive health.

  • The source of data for most country level indicators is the UNFPA country annual reports for 2014-2017, unless stated otherwise
  • Results featured are cumulative - i.e., achieved between the 2014 and 2017 timeframe, and reflect the net situation, true as of the year selected
  • Majority of the results are captured from 127 UNFPA programme countries
  • 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
