United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland
Donor Rankings, 2020
As one of UNFPA’s largest donors in 2020, the government of the United Kingdom is a crucial partner of UNFPA and of women and girls across the world. The UK’s vision for gender equality includes enabling girls to live free from violence, and empowering them to have access to universal sexual and reproductive health and rights.
In 2020, the UK continued to play a critical role in improving the wellbeing of women and girls worldwide, ensuring access to lifesaving health care commodities and providing essential support to UNFPA’s humanitarian and COVID-19 response.
In 2021, the United Kingdom has continued to support UNFPA’s mandate and advance its normative role in international fora. The UK-UNFPA partnership is centered on: improved response to adolescent survivors of sexual violence; reproductive, newborn and maternal health services; programmes to end child marriage, female genital mutilation and gender-based violence; advocating for women’s rights; and improving countries’ capacity to perform evidence-based planning. Support from the United Kingdom goes to projects throughout Africa, Asia, and Eastern Europe, as well as to UNFPA’s Syria response.
