UNFPA Cameroon

Cameroon is a politically stable country, but it struggles with continued development deficits such as a rise in maternal mortality. A growing youth population faces unemployment, high illiteracy rates, and an HIV epidemic. UNFPA has supported the implementation of national health strategies and the development of data management tools. It helps to boost the supply and demand for reproductive health care services, by delivering secure systems to provide contraceptives and greater access to emergency obstetric care. Programmes also focus on promoting gender equality and youth policies, and combatting gender-based violence.
