  • Determine who has Access to SRH Care: Learn who has access to essential SRH care, by combining population and infrastructure mapping with enumerated data on health facilities. © UNFPA

  • Zero in on Harmful Practices: Provide better local data on Female Genital Cutting (FGM) and child marriage, to assess progress over time and the impact of interventions. © UNFPA

  • Monitor Sustainable Development Goal 5.6: Map the landscape of rights and choices, by gathering and sharing new data on women’s decision-making about their sexual and reproductive health (SDG 5.6.1) and men and women’s access to SRH care (SDG 5.6.2). © UN

  • Track Unmet Need for Family Planning: Improve demand forecasting and “last-mile assurance” with high resolution (local) data on population, contraceptive use and services. © UNFPA

  • A catalyst to all UNFPA funds: Support all UNFPA thematic funds with disaggregated, reliable and precise data to meet their goals. © UNFPA
