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 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.

Expected results

The expected outcomes for this project include: at least 50 countries are implementing effective nutrition programs (through supplementation and fortification) for young children by the end of 2013; in all program countries, water supply services have increased; the number of new pediatric HIV infections is reduced by at least 40%; in all priority countries, at least 60% of adolescents, in school and out of school, have the necessary information, skills and services to reduce their risk and vulnerability to HIV; and there are more countries with improved systems of justice for children.
