UNFPA has set out to achieve four world-changing results by 2030: Zero unmet need for family planning, zero preventable maternal death, zero HIV transmissions, and zero gender-based violence, including harmful practices like child marriage and female genital mutilation.

The organization’s 2018-2021 strategic plan charted the path towards realizing these goals, which were resoundingly endorsed by thousands of delegates from governments, grassroots organizations, development agencies and private sector partners at the Nairobi Summit on ICPD25. The Summit, held in November 2019, secured more than 1,250 concrete commitments and billions of dollars in support of these transformative goals.

There are already encouraging signs of progress, with many countries advancing on their commitments, Namibia included.   This snapshot of progress in 2020 gives a view of the UNFPA Namibia Country Office’s work.
