United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) Logo
The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), is an international development agency that promotes the right of every woman, man and child to enjoy a life of health and equal opportunity. UNFPA supports countries in using population data for policies and programmes to reduce poverty and to ensure that every pregnancy is wanted, every birth is safe, every young person is free of HIV/AIDS, and every girl and woman is treated with dignity and respect. UNFPA builds on over three decades of experience in reproductive health and population issues by focusing its response to the epidemic in over 140 countries on HIV prevention among young people and pregnant women, comprehensive male and female condom programming and strengthening the integration of HIV prevention with sexual and reproductive health care. UNFPA further contributes through meeting the reproductive rights and needs of HIV-positive women and adolescents, promoting voluntary counselling and testing as well as services which prevent mother-to-child HIV transmission, improving access to HIV and AIDS information and education and to reproductive health commodities, including those needed in emergency settings.

It also provides support to collecting, processing and using population data in policy formulation, implementation, monitoring and evaluation.
