Republic of Korea

Gender equality is one of five basic principles underpinning the Republic of Korea’s international development policy framework. The Korean International Cooperation Agency’s focus on health, education and gender are aligned with UNFPA’s work on maternal, adolescent and child health, and family planning. The cross-cutting gender equality strategy is three-pronged: Economic empowerment, social status and basic rights. Supporting basic rights includes: Promoting sexual and reproductive health and rights, supporting maternal and newborn care, and ending gender-based violence.

Specific areas of collaboration between the Republic of Korea and UNFPA include: Preventing and responding to gender-based violence in Afghanistan, providing maternal and neonatal assistance in Mozambique, preventing and treating obstetric fistula in Cote D'Ivoire, improving maternal health care in Tanzania, supporting the sexual and reproductive health and rights of adolescent girls in Uganda, empowering girls in Nigeria, and addressing population ageing.
