Gender equality and sexual and reproductive health and rights are priorities of France’s approach to development cooperation, as expressed in its strategies on gender equality (2018-2022) and population, rights and reproductive health (2016-2020). 

The Government of France commits to promote, protect and fulfill the rights of women and girls, including by strengthening normative frameworks for sexual and reproductive rights, increasing access to modern contraceptive methods, facilitating access to sexual and reproductive health services for adolescents and youth, and reducing harmful practices. These policies fully align with UNFPA’s mandate and strategic plan.

Specific areas of collaboration between France and UNFPA include support to UNFPA’s response to the Syria crisis in Lebanon, as well as efforts to reduce maternal mortality and improve access to sexual and reproductive health services for youth and adolescents in West and Central Africa (with the French Muskoka Fund). The Government of France also supports UNFPA Supplies, which facilitates access to reproductive health commodities.

France promotes universal access to sexual and reproductive health and rights as a key enabler of gender equality. It is a matter of human rights, women’s rights, but also of social justice. Gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls is at the heart of French development aid priorities, and UNFPA is a key partner for enabling every young person reach their full potential.
