Friends of UNFPA


Friends of UNFPA promotes the health, dignity, and rights of women and girls around the world by supporting the life-saving work of UNFPA, the United Nations reproductive health and rights agency, through education, advocacy, and fundraising.

UNFPA is the lead United Nations entity for reproductive health and rights for all.

For nearly two decades, Friends of UNFPA has been raising awareness and mobilizing action on behalf of UNFPA.

Friends of UNFPA was established in 1998 and is headquartered in New York. Focused initially on fostering American support for UNFPA, our work changed in 2012 to include a global focus, and now we receive support from donors around the world.

Working in over 155 countries, UNFPA works to end the unmet need for family planning, to end preventable maternal deaths, and to end violence and harmful practices against women and girls.
