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.

  • 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
