UNFPA Colombia

Colombia is a middle-income country, but development lags behind in some rural areas and among four million people uprooted by conflict. Adolescent fertility is high, though overall rates have fallen. The maternal mortality rate indicates gaps in health services. Active in Colombia since 1974, UNFPA helps cultivate state capacities to manage population, reproductive health and gender equity issues, including through integrated services for people suffering displacement and poverty. It encourages women’s and youth organizations to advocate for their sexual and reproductive health and reproductive rights, and promotes a life-cycle approach to reproductive health care.

  • 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
