UNFPA Zimbabwe

Active in Zimbabwe since 1981, UNFPA helps strengthen government and civil society’s capacity to promote communities, in particular women and young people, to access and utilize sexual and reproductive health services, with a focus on reducing maternal deaths, the unmet need for family planning, new HIV infections, and gender-based violence. Programmes also assist with the coordination of the national statistical system for evidence-based programming and rights-based and gender-sensitive approaches.
