In the area of Population and Development Strategies some countries (Belize, Dominica, Guyana, Jamaica, and Netherlands Antilles) are now in a better position to integrate population in national development policies, thanks to UNFPA support. Likewise, UNFPA has played a catalytic role in bringing together countries and international donors in support to the 2010 round of censuses. The dearth of quality statistics is a major factor hindering the ability of countries to enact evidence-based policies. Only two countries, Belize and Jamaica, have conducted DHS surveys since 2000, with most countries having no data on SRH since the late eighties.
