UNFPA Bangladesh Annual Report 2020

The year 2020 was one of the most challenging years in the history of UNFPA Bangladesh. In addition to the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, UNFPA continued to hold one of the world’s largest and most complex humanitarian refugee responses, were repeatedly tried by multiple climate-change induced natural disasters, all the while seeking to ensure no preventable maternal deaths, no unmet need for family planning, and no incidents of gender-based violence.

This Annual Report gives a comprehensive overview of the support UNFPA continued to provide to the people of Bangladesh in 2020. The report clearly demonstrates the progress made towards achieving the results outlined in UNFPA's 9th Country Programme, while ensuring a timely response to the pandemic in line with the Bangladesh Preparedness and Response Plan towards COVID-19, as well as UNFPA's continued support to humanitarian emergencies in 2020.
