UNFPA Papua New Guinea

A lower middle-income country, Papua New Guinea is home to one of the world’s most ethnically diverse populations. Most people live in rural areas, often in areas of difficult access. This represents a complex challenge for health care and social services delivery. Fertility rates are high. UNFPA started work in Papua New Guinea in 1996. It helps improve the quality of and access to maternal, newborn, child and adolescent health services, including for sexual and reproductive health. Programmes support in achieving the national development plans, extending measures to prevent and respond to gender-based violence, and collecting and analysing population data for development planning.

  • 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
