Mission Statement

UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund, 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, and every girl and woman is treated with dignity and respect.

UNFPA - because every one counts ...


Focus Areas

UNFPA works in partnership with governments, as well as with other agencies and civil society broadly, to advance its mission. Two frameworks serve to focus its efforts: The Programme of Action adopted at the International Conference on Population and Development, and the Millennium Development Goals, which the international development community committed itself to six years later.
The three core areas of UNFPA’s focus are

  1. Reproductive health
  2. Gender equality
  3. Population and development strategies

MoH-UNFPA 7th Country Program

UNFPA provides technical and financial assistance to the Ministry of Health to improve the quality of life of the people of Pakistan by enhancing reproductive health status of women, men and adolescents and promoting reproductive and gender equity and equality. The strategic focus of the entire assistance is reducing fertility and high maternal mortality through decentralized program in 10 districts comprising approximately 15 million people. UNFPA’s support mainly focuses on a three-pronged strategy:

  • Enhance skilled birth attendance
  • Ensure basic and comprehensive EmONC services
  • Provide Family Planning services 

As part of the 7th Country Programme Cycle (2004-2012) UNFPA’s support for the Ministry of Health includes core interventions related to management, provision and demand creation for RH/FP services.
