UNFPA China

Since UNFPA began providing assistance in China in 1979, it has contributed substantially to strengthened capacity to conduct demographic analyses and use data for policy planning, shifting its attention later on to a comprehensive approach to sexual and reproductive health, including quality of care and advocacy for informed choice. Over time it also started incorporating a new set of emerging national priorities related to the issues of youth, urbanization, ageing, gender based violence and the distorted sex ratio at birth.
