UNFPA

United Nations Fund For Population Activities is one of the UN organizations. UNFPA started working in 1969 and it’s the world’s most significant source of international funding for population and reproductive health programmes. Its mission is 'to ensure that every pregnancy is wanted, every childbirth is safe, and every young person’s potential is fulfilled.”

United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) was established in 1967 after World War II. UNFPA generally focuses on family planning which is crucial to maintaining gender equality and women empowerment. They supports national health systems, collect data to inform and provides global leadership. The organization also works to prevent child marriage and condemns it as an illegal practice. Over time, UNFPA’s partners and working areas expanded. One of these areas is migration, which is one of the most important areas in todays world. As it evolved, it started to work closely with governments to develop sustainable and humanitarian policies on migration. In this context, UNFPA provides support and assistance to governments and immigrants. UNFPA works to increase understanding of migration issues, advocate for better migration data, and promote the incorporation of migration into national development plans. UNFPA also advocates for addressing the special concerns of women and other vulnerable migrants, and works to meet the emergency reproductive health needs of refugees and internally displaced people.
