UNFPA in Bosnia and Herzegovina provides support to the governmental institutions to strengthen capacities for population data collection, analysis and distribution in order to create population policies. UNFPA also assists governmental authorities and civil society to develop integrated policies with action plans, and to produce comprehensive programmes in line with the Madrid International Plan of Action on Ageing.
