UNFPA Eswatini

With the highest HIV prevalence in the world, Eswatini has experienced a dramatic decline in life expectancy. Maternal, child and infant mortality rates are also high. UNFPA support helps national institutions combat these trends by extending high-quality, integrated sexual and reproductive health services, including for HIV prevention, family planning and maternal health. Programmes also support the integration of population data into development planning, laws and policies to achieve gender equality, and to prevent and respond to gender-based violence.

Technical notes and sources
  • The results featured here are only a selection of key results in line with strategic plan 2014-17 indicators. The selection does not reflect the full picture of all results achieved during the strategic plan cycle by UNFPA programme countries.
  • 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
