UNFPA Ethiopia

The second most populous country in Sub-Saharan Africa, Ethiopia’s economy has experienced strong growth over the past decade, though its impact on poverty reduction is limited. Active in the country since 1973, UNFPA supports efforts to increase access to sexual and reproductive health services, including family planning and emergency obstetric care. Programmes also assist in addressing harmful practices that jeopardize the health of women and girls, such as female genital mutilation/cutting. The contraceptive prevalence rate has doubled in recent years, but challenges remain in promoting gender equality and improving maternal health.
