Do you want to work towards a world where every pregnancy is wanted, every birth is safe, and every young person's potential is fulfilled?

 

Too many left behind!

Although the number of mothers dying from complications of pregnancy or childbirth has been halved since the mid-60's, still too many people are left behind. 

  • Today - Nearly a billion people live under extreme poverty. 
  • Today - Sexual and reproductive health problems are a leading cause of death and disability for women in the developing world. 
  • Today - Young people bear the highest risks of HIV infection and unintended pregnancy. 
  • Today - More than a hundred million girls face the prospect of child marriage and other harmful practices, such as female genital mutilation or cutting.

Much more must be done! You may have the skills needed to enable  a "brighter tomorrow" ensuring a world in which all individuals can exercise their basic human rights, including those that relate to the most intimate and fundamental aspects of life. 

In what areas are UNFPA delivering development results?

UNFPA is the world’s largest source of population assistance. UNFPA is on the ground in more than 150 countries. 

Ensuring every pregnancy is wanted

Few things have a greater impact on the life of a woman than the number and spacing of her children. That’s why international agreements going back decades affirm that individuals should have the right (and the means) to freely decide when (or if) to start a family and how many children to bear. Yet, in this new century, some 225 million women who want to avoid or delay childbearing still lack access to the quality services and supplies needed to manage their fertility.

Supporting maternal health

We know how to save almost all women who die giving life. The first step is to ensure they can plan their pregnancies and space their births. Skilled birth attendance at delivery, with backup emergency obstetric care and essential supplies in place, is also critical.

Perhaps the most challenging aspect of reducing maternal death and disability is finding ways to reach all women, even those in the poorest, most remote areas, or in times of natural or man-made disasters. This involves bolstering health systems. It is also critical that pregnant women are able to access all the care they need, from prenatal HIV testing to postnatal care for newborns, at the same clinic or health centre. This approach saves money and saves lives.

Helping young people fulfill their potential

Young people matter. They matter because an unprecedented 1.8 billion youth are alive today, and because they are the shapers and leaders of our global future. Young people from age 10-24 constitute a quarter of the world’s population (2014).  Their reproductive choices will shape future demographic trends.

UNFPA advocates for the rights of young people, including the right to accurate information and services related to sexuality and reproductive health. Empowered with knowledge and skills to protect themselves and make informed decisions, they can realize their full potential and contribute to economic and social transformation.

Investing in young people, especially adolescent girls, is one of the smartest investments a country can make. As parents, teachers and leaders of the next generation, they can help break the cycle of poverty, strengthen the social fabric and create a sustainable future.
