UNFPA Tanzania

Active in Tanzania since 1975, UNFPA works under a common UN development assistance plan focused on national priorities and human rights. Partnerships with the Government and civil society help advance reproductive health services and rights, with a focus on youth. Responses to gender-based violence include campaigning to end female genital mutilation/cutting. Programmes also invest in stronger national capacities to produce and apply demographic data.

  • 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
