This annual report summarizes the 2013 programmes, objectives and initiatives achieved, both globally and regionally, in 2013. UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund, worked with 159 countries, territories and other areas in 2013 to help deliver a world where every pregnancy is wanted, every childbirth is safe and every young person’s potential is fulfilled.

Backed by $976.8 million in support from donor governments, partner organizations, foundations and individuals in 2013, UNFPA delivered results in the seven main programming areas of the organization’s Strategic Plan for 2008–2013:

  • Expanding and improving maternal and newborn health;
  • Increasing access to voluntary family planning;
  • Making HIV and STI services more accessible to pregnant women people living with HIV, young people and key populations;
  • Advocating for gender equality and reproductive rights;
  • Increasing young people’s access to sexual and reproductive health services and information;
  • Linking population dynamics, policymaking and development plans;
  • Harnessing the power of data.
