Description and results

Description

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 for policies and programmes 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 greater access to reproductive health, development policies that take population dynamics into account, and improvements in the status of girls and women worldwide.

Results achieved

Results achieved as of December 2011 include: UNFPA helped countries to collect and use population data to improve planning and service delivery; provided humanitarian services in 15 countries; strengthened midwifery regulation, services and training in 30 countries and launched more than 150 midwifery schools and associations (in collaboration with the International Confederation of Midwives); helped 45 countries expand access to voluntary family planning services; assisted 87 countries to strengthen youth-friendly sexual and reproductive health and HIV services; and 45 UNFPA country offices supported programmes with military and police services in the areas of HIV, sexual and reproductive health and gender-based violence.
