UNFPA in Algeria

Algeria recorded tangible progress in the past 20 years, in particular, the modernization of economic and social infrastructures, the reduction of poverty and unemployment rates and the improvement of human development. UNFPA support began in 1989, with early success in integrating family planning in primary health care, expending reproductive health service to meet the needs of all segments of the population, and promoting services like screening for women cancers. Programmes also support HIV prevention, adolescent reproductive health, and the reduction of gender-based violence.
