UNFPA’s strong belief is that all citizens have the right to decide freely and responsibly the number, spacing and timing of their children and to have the information and necessary means to do so.

UNFPA supports strengthening of capacities of governments to provide integrated sexual and reproductive health services, with a focus on vulnerable populations. The interventions attempt to lessen inequities in accessing high-quality reproductive health services, including maternal health and family planning.

UNFPA encourages setting up policies and frameworks for quality healthcare standards for all. Furthermore, UNFPA
supports strengthening capacities of healthcare workers to deliver up-to-date sexual and reproductive health information
and services and reduce maternal mortality rates. At the same time, UNFPA supports initiatives to increase modern contraceptives availability and use, and additionally to increase knowledge of the population on sexual and reproductive health and rights. Furthermore, UNFPA is contributing to the integration of sexual and reproductive health needs in the emergency preparedness plan.
