UNFPA Lebanon

Having made significant advances in terms of human development, Lebanon still faces persisting disparities in health and well-being. Almost all women receive care during pregnancy and delivery and maternal mortality has declined. Care after birth is more limited, however. UNFPA assistance began in 1993. Today, it helps close the remaining gaps in policies, data and regulations , and supports coordination for emergency preparedness. Support for health reform includes strengthening the quality of reproductive health care and reaching out to underserviced groups. UNFPA is also introducing tools to integrate gender equality considerations in public planning and spending choices.
