Founded in 1969, UNFPA is the lead United Nations sexual and reproductive health and rights agency. Today, UNFPA works in more than 150 countries to ensure every pregnancy is wanted, every childbirth is safe, and every woman and girl can reach her fullest potential.
Established by concerned American citizens, USA for UNFPA is a U.S.-based non-profit organization, dedicated to building support for UNFPA’s work within the United States. We raise awareness among Americans about global sexual and reproductive health, mobilize support to provide lifesaving care to women and girls worldwide, and advocate for gender equality.
We want a world where women become pregnant only when they want to. A world where giving birth is safe for every mother and child. And a world where women and girls live free from harmful practices and violence. By supporting and empowering women and girls, we will be creating a world that is better for everyone. We won’t stop until this becomes reality, no matter what.
We use our voice passionately to bring women and girls across the world access to sexual and reproductive health care and to keep them safe from violence and harmful practices. We champion the rights of women and girls to make their own decisions about what is best for their lives and futures. And we help ensure their real-life experiences and views are heard and respected. We are a catalyst for profound positive change among women, their families, and their communities. To achieve this, we focus relentlessly on inspiring people to support UNFPA’s vital and impactful work.
for and with those we serve, we say and do what’s right, not what’s easy, no matter what.
as part of turning our values into action; we are responsible and transparent.
we make a real impact for women and girls worldwide, and we can prove it.
we are passionate about our work and are deeply committed to our mission.
