Background Information:
The United Nations Population Fund's assistance in The Gambia began in 1972 with support to the 19973 Population Census, the provision of contraceptives supplies, vehicles and equipment, the strengthening of Maternal and Child health/Family Planning (MCHFP) services & communication activities.

Since then, better registration and reporting systems have been developed to improve data collection and the information base for demographic analysis.

The Fund also helped the Government to recognise and improve health care services in rural areas by strengthening seven major Health Centres in the five administrative divisions of the country as focus for health development. Training of staff at the central level to improve technical and managerial skills has been given priority through fellowships in management training and contraceptive technology.
