UNFPA Supplies focuses, in particular, on reaching those who face the greatest barriers to accessing reproductive health services, including family planning. Ensuring we reach the poorest women and young people, those living in rural areas and with lower levels of education, who often have the least access to services, is vital for attaining universal health coverage and a cornerstone of sustainable development that leaves no one behind.

This Executive Summary provides an overview of the programme's activities in 2017, based on the full annual report
