The Government of the United States of America, which played a central role in the creation and launch of UNFPA in 1969, has been an active member of UNFPA’s Executive Board for more than 50 years. The United States supports UNFPA’s work on ending preventable maternal death, ending the unmet need for family planning and ending gender-based violence and other harmful practices. In the face of emergent challenges, the United States remains committed to UNFPA, including the agency’s humanitarian response and efforts to address the impact of global climate change on the lives of women and girls.  

The United States and UNFPA have long been the premier bilateral and multilateral providers, respectively, of global family planning and reproductive health assistance and the largest procurers of contraceptives in the world.  This technical partnership has remained strong across U.S. administrations and continues today in both organizations’ engagement with Family Planning 2030, the Reproductive Health Supplies Coalition, and country-level collaboration.

UNFPA welcomed the return of the United States in 2021 as a key donor and champion of women’s and girls’ health and rights. The United States and UNFPA share many common goals centered on promoting the health, livelihoods and dignity of women and girls worldwide. The United States generously contributed $50.5 million in 2022 to UNFPA’s core resources. Additionally, the United States has robustly restored co-financing for UNFPA's critical humanitarian and development work. The United States was also the largest contributor to UNFPA’s humanitarian response in 2022, providing more than $131 million to UNFPA’s lifesaving work in critical contexts such as Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Haiti, Sudan, Syria, Ukraine, the Venezuela regional refugee response, and Yemen, among others. These donations allowed UNFPA to provide expertise in responding to gender-based violence in crisis-affected communities, strengthen global standards for accountability, and ensure sexual and reproductive health service provision, among other activities. The support of the U.S. and other partners enabled UNFPA to deliver humanitarian aid in more than 30 countries. 

In line with its commitment to advancing sexual and reproductive health globally, the United States has contributed $10 million to the UNFPA Supplies Partnership, with a focus on providing contraceptives and life-saving maternal health medicines in refugee settings. The U.S. has also provided critical development funding in support of UNFPA’s census work and efforts to prevent gender-based violence, among other priorities. 

Antony J. Blinken, Secretary of State
The United States supports UNFPA's work precisely because it is essential to the health and well-being of women around the world and directly contributes to the safety and prosperity of communities around the globe. The United States seeks to empower women and girls and advance gender equality, including promoting their sexual and reproductive health and rights. We will continue to strengthen this partnership with UNFPA to improve health outcomes and empower women and girls so they can realize their full potential.
Antony J. Blinken, Secretary of State
