Sweden

Donor Rankings, 2021

1st Core Contributions
4th Non Core Contributions
2nd Overall Contributions

Sweden gives strong priority to core funding of the multilateral system and UNFPA in particular. Unearmarked funding enables UNFPA to plan long-term, respond flexibly to emerging priorities, and sustainably support human rights-based programmes that improve the lives of women and young people in developing countries. Core funding also enables access to comprehensive sexuality education, contraceptives and maternal health care, prevention of unsafe abortions and support to UNFPA's strategic plan. 

Sweden is also the main contributor to UNFPA’s Maternal Health Thematic Fund, which trains midwives, performs fistula repair surgeries and delivers other maternal health support to countries with high maternal death rates. Additional areas of collaboration between Sweden and UNFPA include HIV prevention; programmes to end gender-based violence; sexual and reproductive health and rights programmes; humanitarian initiatives; and efforts to abandon female genital mutilation.
