With a low birth rate and emigration spurred by poverty and unemployment, Georgia faces the challenges of depopulation and an ageing population. Privatization and growing costs have challenged health reforms, and the unmet need for contraceptives is still high despite greater availability. Emerging concerns include the increasing incidence of reproductive system cancers. Since 1999, UNFPA has assisted efforts to meet needs related to reproductive health, population and development, and gender equality. Among other measures, UNFPA support helps to boost the quality and accessibility of reproductive health services and to build capacities to collect and manage population data.
