UNFPA Bosnia & Herzegovina

Bosnia and Herzegovina has emerged from post-conflict to a period of more stability and aims to eventually join the European Union. Challenges include: high unemployment, weak social protection, poor data, an ageing population, low fertility rates and marked gender inequalities. Key priorities for UNFPA support, which began in 1995, include the development of Reproductive Health Policy, prevention of cervical cancer, equal access to reproductive health services for youth, the strengthening of the social and demographic data collection, and prevention and management of gender-based violence.
