Angola - Reproductive health at a glance (Inglês)

Angola has made substantial economic and political progress. Angola's large share of youth population (45 percent of the country population is younger than 15 years old) provides a window of opportunity for high growth and poverty reduction the demographic dividend. For this opportunity to result in accelerated growth, the government needs to invest more in the human capital formation of its youth. This is especially important in a context of decelerated growth rate arising from the global recession. In Angola, the literacy rate among females ages 15 and above is 57 percent. Fewer girls are enrolled in secondary schools compared to boys with an 83 percent ratio of female to male secondary enrollment. Three-quarters of adult women participate in the labor force that mostly involves work in agriculture. Gender inequalities are reflected in the country's human development ranking; Angola ranks 142 of 157 countries in the Gender-related Development Index.
