UNFPA Turkey

UNFPA assistance in Turkey began in 1971. Though maternal mortality has declined, progress varies by region and youth have limited access to sexual and reproductive health information and services. UNFPA programmes help improve health services to reduce maternal mortality and high-risk pregnancies, and extend reproductive health services to vulnerable groups, including youth. UNFPA programmes further support the advancement of women’s human rights and combat gender-based violence. They also assist with data on emerging population issues, such as migration and ageing.

  • 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
