United States of America

The United States government played a central role in the creation and launch of UNFPA in 1969, and has been an active member of UNFPA’s Executive Board for more than 45 years. The US supported UNFPA’s work on reducing poverty, improving the health of women and their families, including reducing maternal and child mortality, preventing HIV/AIDs, and addressing gender-based violence. The US also partnered with UNFPA to increase access to health services for women and adolescent girls in crisis settings, including by supporting safe childbirth, emergency obstetric care, and pre- and post-natal services.

The United States implements its commitments to addressing gender-based violence through its whole-of-government “Strategy to Prevent and Respond to Gender-Based Violence Globally,” the “US Global Strategy to Empower Adolescent Girls,” and the “National Action Plan on Women, Peace and Security.” In the humanitarian sphere, the US Gender-Based Violence Strategy aims to reduce violence and empower women and girls to realize their rights and determine their life courses, which aligns with UNFPA’s mandate.

In 2016, the United States was the largest contributor to UNFPA’s global initiatives to address gender-based violence in humanitarian contexts. These donations allowed UNFPA to provide critical expertise on responding to gender-based violence in crisis-affected communities, and to define global standards for accountability to help further professionalize the field. US government support in humanitarian crises enabled UNFPA to reach an estimated 11.4 million people in 55 countries with life-saving assistance through 481 mobile health clinics, 2,488 facilities that provided emergency obstetric care, and 485 safe spaces for women to escape gender-based violence. The United States was the major supporter, through UNFPA, of the main maternity ward in the Zaatari Camp, the world's largest Syrian refugee camp. The United States also provided core funding support to UNFPA, enabling the agency to plan long-term, respond flexibly to emerging priorities, and support programmes that improve the lives of women and young people in developing countries.
