UNFPA works to develop partnerships that create shared opportunities and leverage on partners’ added value, to support the mandate of the Organization in achieving universal access to sexual and reproductive health and rights, reduce maternal death and improve the lives of adolescents and youth.

The Organization is engaged in collaborations with stakeholders including the business sector, foundations, parliamentarians, civil society, academia and scientific institutions, as well as individuals and multi-stakeholder initiatives to make every partnership unique and ensure support to UNFPA’s programs.
