UNFPA North Macedonia

An upper middle-income country in transition, the Republic of North Macedonia has population and development patterns that include an ageing population, decreasing fertility, and migration. UNFPA support began in 2007, focusing on preventing domestic violence, and advocating for sexual and reproductive health and rights, including for youth. Programmes encourage the exchange of expert knowledge and good practices, and help the Government develop strategic policies on population and development issues in line with European Union accession priorities
