Why we innovate

Through innovation, UNFPA disrupts inequalities to ensure rights and choices for all, with no one left behind. We take down barriers to women and girls in obtaining services and exercising their right to sexual and reproductive health. Innovation accelerates progress on UNFPA's three transformative goals: zero unmet need for family planning, zero preventable maternal deaths and zero gender-based violence. It helps put countries and communities back on track to achieve the goals of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the ICPD Programme of Action. To address the challenges of our times, we need to think differently and act differently in delivering rights and choices for women and girls. And we can, through innovation.
