The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) is the United Nations sexual and reproductive health agency. Our mission is to deliver a world where every pregnancy is wanted, every childbirth is safe and every young person's potential is fulfilled.

UNFPA supports:

    1. Reproductive health care for women and youth in more than 150 countries – which are home to more than 80 per cent of the world’s population
    2. The health of pregnant women, especially the 1 million who face life-threatening complications each month
    3. Reliable access to modern contraceptives sufficient to benefit 20 million women a year
    4. Training of thousands of health workers to help ensure at least 90 per cent of all childbirths are supervised by skilled attendants
    5. Prevention of gender-based violence, which affects 1 in 3 women
    6. Abandonment of female genital mutilation, which harms 3 million girls annually
    7. Prevention of teen pregnancies, complications of which are the leading cause of death for girls 15-19 years old
    8. Efforts to end child marriage, which could affect an estimated 70 million girls over the next 5 years
