UNFPA Costa Rica

Costa Rica has heavily invested in social services, but a quarter of its people are still poor. Social inequalities have increased, especially among women, youth, indigenous people, people of African descent and migrants in general. Despite declining birth rates, a large number of women still have unwanted pregnancies. UNFPA has provided assistance since 1984. Support is geared towards achieving universal access to sexual and reproductive health care, orienting reproductive health policy to young people, implementing the national gender equality policy, and bolstering measures to prevent and respond to gender-based violence.

  • The source of data for most country level indicators is the UNFPA country annual reports for 2014-2017, unless stated otherwise
  • 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
