The development priorities of Ireland strongly align with the work and mandate of UNFPA. Irish development cooperation policy names human rights and essential services, including health, education and disease prevention, as two of six priority areas for action, where gender equality and women’s empowerment are seen as cross-cutting themes to be considered in all interventions. Ireland’s emphasis on essential services aligns strongly with UNFPA’s work on ending maternal and infant mortality, promoting universal access to quality maternal and reproductive health care, supporting safe motherhood, promoting HIV/AIDS prevention strategies, and ending harmful practices against women and girls including gender-based violence and female genital mutilation.  UNFPA’s humanitarian work aligns with the Government of Ireland’s focus on human rights and fragile contexts.

Specific areas of collaboration between the Government of Ireland and UNFPA include: Gender-based violence prevention and response; support for sexual and reproductive health; promotion of HIV prevention; supporting population and housing censuses; reduction of teenage pregnancy; abandonment of female genital mutilation; and contributions to UNFPA Supplies Programme to improve the health and well-being of women and girls everywhere and the Maternal Health Thematic Fund, which provides midwifery training, obstetric fistula repair surgeries and other activities to strengthen maternal health services.
 

Ciarán Cannon T.D, Minister of State for the Diaspora and International Development
Ireland is a longstanding supporter of UNFPA and I commend the vital work being undertaken by the organisation. Its work addresses not only the vital issues of maternal and reproductive health but also the fundamental challenges of gender equality and women’s empowerment.As we work towards the global implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals, Ireland continues to place a high priority on our partnership with UNFPA. The ambitious vision of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development can only be achieved if we address the inequalities – including gender and reproductive health inequalities – which hold women and girls back from realising their rights and ambitions.
