United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA)

UNFPA is on the ground improving lives in about 150 countries that are home to 80 per cent of the world’s population. In these countries, the Fund is a catalyst for progress. Working with governments and through partnerships with other UN agencies, civil society and the private sector, we make a real difference in the lives of millions of people, especially those most vulnerable.

Our network of regional and sub-regional offices provides technical expertise and coordinates the efforts of our country offices that work on the front lines of development.

UNFPA anticipates and responds to tomorrow’s challenges today. We help countries use population data to assess and anticipate needs, and to monitor progress and gaps in delivering on our promises. We provide technical guidance, training and support to empower our partners and colleagues in the field. And we help ensure that the reproductive health and rights of women and young people remain at the very centre of development.
