UNFPA

The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), formerly known as the United Nations Fund for Population Activities, is a UN agency set up in 1969 to improve the global reproductive and maternal health. Its focus areas include improving the developing countries’ healthcare strategies and protocols, increasing access to birth control and campaigning against social evils such as child marriage, gender-based violence.
On the occasion of the World Population Day, the UNFPA called for the prioritisation of improving reproductive health and rights through universal dissemination of information and services related to fertility and demography shifts.
