Advancing the rights of women and girls constitutes one of four major priority areas for Finland’s international development policy. Finland’s development objectives for gender equality include improved access for women and girls to inclusive, quality education; expanded basic health and social services, including for sexual and reproductive health; and services to fight violence, abuse and human trafficking.

Finland prioritizes support to UNFPA’s core funding, which is considered the most efficient investment in the Fund, as it enables long-term planning, flexible responses to emerging priorities, and sustainable support for human rights-based programmes that improve the lives of women and young people in developing countries.

Other key areas for collaboration with Finland include: support to UNFPA’s activities in Somalia, contributions to the UNFPA Innovation Fund and support to UNFPA’s humanitarian response in Syria.

 

 

Ville Skinnari, Minister for Development Cooperation and Foreign Trade
Finnish development policy continues to prioritize gender equality and the rights and empowerment of women and girls. Sexual and reproductive health and rights is key in gender equality and human rights work. The realization of SRHR promotes the well-being of families and society at large, contributing to sustainable development. We emphasize guaranteeing access to sexual and reproductive health services and education, including comprehensive sexuality education. Finland strives for these priorities in cooperation with UNFPA, one of our main UN partners, and we are committed to continuing our long-standing support to UNFPA.
