UNFPA Kenya

Despite steady economic growth, rich cultural and biological diversity and a strong tourist industry, almost half of Kenya’s people live in poverty. Addressing the country’s rapid population growth – close to 3 per cent per year -- is seen as key to sustainable development, as outlined in the national planning strategy known as Kenya Vision 2030. UNFPA’s contribution includes strengthening reproductive health services, improving supply chains for contraceptives, advocacy against gender-based violence, and facilitating integration of population dynamics into policy formulation.

  • 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
