New Zealand’s support to UNFPA’s mandate reflects the priority accorded to health, human rights, gender equality and women’s empowerment in New Zealand’s development cooperation work. New Zealand recognizes that investing in health is crucial for human and economic development. More specifically, support to UNPFA’s work is helping to reduce the maternal death rate, combat violence against women and girls, eliminate child marriage and female genital mutilation, and improve demographic data for national planning. This work is crucial to help achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. New Zealand particularly values UNFPA’s work in the Pacific region, where there is low usage of contraceptives, high incidence of early marriage, and high levels of violence suffered by women and girls. 

New Zealand works with UNFPA in a number of ways. The provision of regular resources under a multi-year funding arrangement gives UNFPA the flexibility required to meet priority needs and to maximize the impact of its work. New Zealand also provides other resources to support UNFPA’s sexual and reproductive health programmes in Kiribati, Samoa, the Solomon Islands, Tonga and Vanuatu. New Zealand also recently agreed to provide UNFPA with support to help meet the urgent needs of Rakhine state refugees in the Cox’s Bazar region of Bangladesh.

Winston Peters, Minister of Foreign Affairs
The need for UNFPA remains as great as ever. Lack of access to sexual and reproductive health services and information remains a leading cause of death and disability for women and girls in the developing world, while over a hundred million girls continue to face the prospect of child marriage and female genital mutilation.
Winston Peters, Minister of Foreign Affairs
