One of four key aims in Denmark’s Strategy for Development Cooperation and Humanitarian Action, entitled “The World 2030”, is the promotion of freedom and development – democracy, human rights and gender equality. This aim places sexual and reproductive health and the rights of women and girls at its centre.

The Government of Denmark believes that ensuring equal opportunities and rights for women, men, boys and girls is crucial for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals, and that gender equality requires ensuring the human rights of all women and girls, including safeguarding their sexual and reproductive health and rights. Therefore, the Government of Denmark is a strong political and financial supporter of UNFPA’s mandate and activities.

Denmark’s financial contribution to UNFPA comes in various forms. A core contribution supports UNFPA in its efforts to ensure the sexual and reproductive health and rights of all women and girls globally. An earmarked contribution for UNFPA Supplies supports UNFPA’s work to help countries build stronger health systems and widen access to a reliable supply of contraceptives and life-saving medicines for maternal health. A contribution to UNFPA’s innovation initiative supports the development of innovations with the potential to improve development and humanitarian results on the ground. A contribution supports UNFPA’s humanitarian work, as women and girls often face extraordinary burdens in humanitarian crises. Denmark also makes contributions to UNFPA’s work through its bilateral country programmes and for specific projects.

 

Rasmus Prehn, Minister for Development Cooperation
Denmark has long been and continues to be at the forefront of the fight for women and girls’ right to decide over their own body. UNFPA is a strong and trusted partner in this fight. In 2019, the partnership between Denmark and UNFPA was taken to a new level when the Government of Denmark joined forces with UNFPA and the Government of Kenya to convene the Nairobi Summit on ICPD25. Going forward, Denmark looks forward to working together with UNFPA and other partners to ensure that the political will and the financial commitments mobilized in Nairobi will be used optimally to deliver a future, where women and girls are able to plan their family, their life and their future.
