United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA)
UNFPA is the lead UN agency for delivering a world where every pregnancy is wanted, every childbirth is safe and every young person's potential is fulfilled. UNFPA expands the possibilities for women and young people to lead healthy and productive lives.
Since UNFPA started working in 1969, the number–and rate–of women dying from complications of pregnancy or childbirth has been halved. Families are smaller and healthier. Young people are more connected and empowered than ever before.
Pathfinder continues its work with UNFPA to support advocacy efforts for family planning, birth spacing, as well as population and development activities.
