UNFPA Syrian Arab Republic

Active in the Syrian Arab Republic since 1971, UNFPA has positively impacted development indicators in the country. The humanitarian programme, which began with the start of armed conflict in 2011, has scaled up collaboration with implementing partners in response to the crisis by improving access to reproductive health in areas where services have been disrupted. It also works on preventing and responding to gender-based violence.

  • 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
