CONTRIBUTION TO FAMILY PLANNING
Family planning is central to women’s empowerment and sustainable development. UNFPA works with governments and partners to promote universal access to quality, integrated sexual and reproductive health services, which includes access to safe, voluntary family planning, contributing to ending the unmet need for family planning by 2030. It does this by ensuring a steady, reliable supply of quality contraceptives; strengthening national health systems; advocating for policies supportive of family planning; and gathering data to support this work. UNFPA also provides global leadership in increasing access to family planning, by convening partners – including governments – to develop evidence and policies, and by offering programmatic, technical and financial assistance to developing countries.
Welcome to the UNFPA Supplies Partnership 2021-2030: Uniting for Transformative Action in Family Planning and Maternal Health
UNFPA’s flagship thematic fund enters its third phase from January 2021 through 2030 as the sharpened and more strategic UNFPA Supplies Partnership. It represents a new decade of commitment to advancing family planning and maternal health and accelerating progress towards achieving the 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals. This publication outlines the new strategy for the Partnership developed through an 18-month consultative process with UNFPA colleagues and the global community to ensure the programme is fit for purpose to meet the challenges and opportunities of the next decade.
UNFPA Supplies Partnership
The UNFPA Supplies Partnership delivers a choice of modern contraceptives and life-saving maternal health medicines into the hands of adolescents and women who need them most. How do we do it? Through strategic country-led actions to reach the last mile. Dedicated to accountability and the effective use of resources, the Partnership strengthens supply chains and reproductive health services.
