UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund, delivers a world where every pregnancy is wanted, every birth is safe, every young person's potential is fulfilled.
UNFPA - because everyone counts
The goals of UNFPA - achieving universal access to sexual and reproductive health (including family planning), promoting reproductive rights, reducing maternal mortality and accelerating progress on the ICPD agenda and MDG 5 - are inextricably linked. UNFPA also focuses on improving the lives of youths and women by advocating for human rights and gender equality and by promoting the understanding of population dynamics. Population dynamics, including growth rates, age structure, fertility and mortality and migration have an effect on every aspect of human, social and economic progress. And sexual and reproductive health and women's empowerment all powerfully affect and are influenced by population trends.
The three UNFPA European Offices work closely with crucial partners located in Europe, including governments, parliamentarians, UN agencies, academia, media, civil society and the private sector. Through policy dialogue with stakeholders, representation at important meetings, advocacy, resource mobilization, campaigns and media relations, the European Offices contribute to the goal of UNFPA, creating a world where everyone counts.
