UNFPA Tanzania

Active in Tanzania since 1975, UNFPA works under a common UN development assistance plan focused on national priorities and human rights. Partnerships with the Government and civil society help advance reproductive health services and rights, with a focus on youth. Responses to gender-based violence include campaigning to end female genital mutilation/cutting. Programmes also invest in stronger national capacities to produce and apply demographic data.
