Friends of UNFPA was established in 1998. It is a non-profit organization, headquartered in New York, that supports the work of UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund. UNFPA is delivering a world where every pregnancy is wanted, every childbirth is safe, and every young person’s potential is fulfilled. Friends of UNFPA advances this global effort by mobilizing funds and action for UNFPA’s lifesaving work.
Founded in 1969, UNFPA is the lead United Nations agency that expands the possibilities for women and young people to lead healthy sexual and reproductive lives. UNFPA is on the ground, improving lives, in more than 150 countries. UNFPA accelerates progress towards universal access to sexual and reproductive health, including voluntary family planning and safe motherhood. It also advances the rights and opportunities of young people.
