Japan’s policy for development cooperation features a three-pronged strategy for gender equality, based on promoting women’s rights, building capacity for women and girls to reach their full potential, and promoting equality in leadership and decision-making opportunities. As part of these objectives, Japan is committed to ending gender-based violence, promoting sexual and reproductive health and rights, including maternal health, and protecting human rights in crisis and conflict situations.

Specific areas of collaboration with Japan include: delivery of reproductive health services for women in conflict areas, the provision of safe spaces in the Middle East, efforts to end gender-based violence, and maternal and newborn health and emergency obstetric care in the Middle East and Africa.

 
HAYASHI Yoshimasa, Minister of Foreign Affairs
Japan has positioned women’s health and protecting their rights as priority fields in order to promote gender mainstreaming and women’s empowerment. Hence, United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) is our important partner. Japan and UNFPA developed further closer partnership through many constructive talks in several fora such as World Assembly for Women (WAW!) and International conference on Universal Health Coverage (UHC) Japan and UNFPA will keep collaborating for achieving Sustainable Development Goals, in particular sexual and reproductive health.
HAYASHI Yoshimasa, Minister of Foreign Affairs
