This advocacy booklet lays out the underlying principles of UNFPA's human rights work in the key thematic areas, including population and development, reproductive health, gender equality and women's empowerment. It explains how programming can advance human rights and shows the significant role that good practices and synergy among different actors can play in this regard.

The book is divided into two sections. The first describes the commitment of UNFPA to a human rights framework and discusses the rights-based approach to programming. The second describes UNFPA's role in monitoring human rights treaty committees in key programmatic areas.
