UNFPA Sudan

Active in Sudan since 1973, UNFPA is partnering with the Government and civil society for national development and and responding to humanitarian and recovery needs. While the overarching goal is to reduce maternal mortality through improved and equitable access to basic reproductive health services and information, UNFPA supports youth and women’s empowerment. The current Country Programme targets other vulnerable groups, particularly the rural, poor, and displaced communities.

  • 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
