UNFPA Philippines

Active in the Philippines since 1970, UNFPA backs national objectives to achieve universal access to sexual and reproductive health care, and reduce maternal deaths. Though maternal mortality is slowly decreasing, the unmet need for family planning has edged up. In disadvantaged areas, UNFPA supports health systems to deliver core services to women and their newborn infants, young people, and men. It partners with government agencies on using effective data to guide policy-making, and civil society organizations to advocate for reproductive rights.
