UNFPA Uganda

Active in Uganda since 1987, UNFPA works to address the challenges of high maternal mortality and the unmet need for family planning. Programmes support the increased use of midwifery services and modern family planning, and advocate for measures enabling young people to make healthy lifestyle choices. UNFPA also helps keep population data current, and encourages community leaders and policymakers to champion solutions to population challenges. It engages with women’s and men’s groups to build a critical mass of voices for gender equality and human rights.
