UNFPA Peru

Peru has achieved economic growth and relative political stability, but still needs to expedite poverty reduction, and close wide gaps among regions and population groups. Active in Peru since 1972, UNFPA supports regions that are lagging behind to improve the delivery of comprehensive reproductive health services, including to young people. The programmes help decision makers develop capacities to use data disaggregated by gender, ethnicity and other parameters in enacting regional population plans, as well as to implement emergency preparedness and response strategies. UNFPA also advocates for public policies to advance gender equality.

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
