What We Do
UNFPA has established its Country Office in Uzbekistan in 1993. Currently, the Fund is implementing its third Country Programme for the period of 2010–2015 (ссылка на публикацию). Under this programme, the Fund focuses on the following areas, working in close partnership with the Government of Uzbekistan on joint development initiatives.
Reproductive health encompasses key areas of the UNFPA vision — that every child is wanted, every birth is safe, every young person is free of HIV and every girl and woman is treated with dignity and respect. UNFPA plays an important role in strengthening the capacity of the health care system of Uzbekistan, so that it is able to provide high quality services in the area of reproductive and maternal health.
UNFPA’s work on population is central to the goals of the international community to improve living standards and achieve sustainable development. UNFPA supports Uzbekistan in improving capacity of the government at central and local level to collect, analyze and use population data for formulation of socio-economic development strategies and promote understanding of the linkages between population issues and development.
UNFPA promotes equality of rights and opportunities for men and women, and calls for implementing necessary legal and political reforms in this area. In Uzbekistan, UNFPA supports the Government in its efforts to ensure gender equality at all levels through advocacy activities and capacity building of local institutions.
Another strong focus of UNFPA’s interventions is on adolescents and youth. We promote young people’s preparedness for family life and their access to reproductive health information and services. UNFPA is also supporting a groundbreaking and comprehensive youth-to-youth initiative, Y-PEER network in Uzbekistan and worldwide.
