Description and results


This grant represents Canada’s institutional support to the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA). UNFPA uses these funds, along with those of other donors, to achieve its core mandate and functions. UNFPA’s mandate is to support countries in using population data to develop policies and programs that reduce poverty and 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 focuses on three main areas: reproductive health and rights, gender equality, and population and development strategies. Canada’s support to UNFPA contributes to increasing access to reproductive health, developing development policies that take population dynamics into account, and improving the status of girls and women worldwide.

Expected results

The expected outcomes for this project as stated by the United Nations Population Fund include: (1) countries are implementing effective nutrition programs (through supplementation and fortification) for young children; (2) in all program countries, water supply services have increased; (3) the number of new pediatric HIV infections is reduced, and a percentage of adolescents, in school and out of school, have the necessary information, skills and services to reduce their risk and vulnerability to HIV; and (4) there are more countries with improved systems of justice for children.
