• programme coordination and assistance
Focusing on the following sustainable development goals (SDGs)
How we work
UNFPA adopts a human rights-based approach throughout its work. This entails educating individuals and communities about their human rights so they can demand the respect and basic services they are entitled to. This approach also involves empowering governments to fulfil these rights.
... and why
The work of UNFPA is based on the premise that all human beings are entitled to equal rights and protections. They focus on women and young people because these are groups whose ability to exercise their right to sexual and reproductive health is often compromised.
