UNFPA, the United Nations sexual and reproductive health agency works to deliver a world where:
Every pregnancy is wanted;
UNFPA is the world’s largest procurer of contraceptives for public funds enabling women and men to enjoy the human right to decide if and when to have children.
Every childbirth is safe;
UNFPA educates midwives and strengthens health systems to ensure women’s access to prenatal visits, skilled birth attendance, and referral to emergency assistance – including C-sections, blood transfusion and life-saving medicines – if complications arise.
Every young person’s potential is fulfilled;
UNFPA promotes age-appropriate comprehensive sexuality education, youth-friendly services and the abandonment of harmful practices such as early marriages and female genital mutilation.
