With support from Global Affairs Canada, UNFPA is implementing the project “Sihat Mand Khaandaan (SMK): Healthy Families for Pakistan through Accelerated Sexual and Reproductive Health and Family Planning Services” which is designed to address the remaining challenges in the areas of Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights, including family planning and maternal health.

 

UNFPA is working closely with the federal and provincial governments, Aga Khan Foundation, and other implementing partners to ensure a conducive and enabling policy environment, strengthen the delivery of quality, gender-responsive, and inclusive FP/RH services, and reduce gender and social barriers to utilization and uptake of FP/RH services by women, men, girls, and boys. Policy efforts are concentrated at the federal and provincial levels (specifically, Punjab, Sindh, Balochistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, and Gilgit-Baltistan); whereas the service delivery strengthening and social change, components are concentrated in selected districts of Sindh (Matiari and Qambar Shahdadkot), Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (Upper and Lower Chitral), and Gilgit-Baltistan (Ghizer, Gilgit, Hunza, Nagar, Skardu, Astore, Kharmang and Diamer). The implementation period of the project is from 2020 to 2024.
