UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund, is the lead UN agency for delivering a world where every pregnancy is wanted, every birth is safe, and every young person's potential is fulfilled. Since UNFPA started working in 1969, deaths from complications of pregnancy or childbirth have been drastically reduced. Families are smaller and healthier. But too many are still left behind. Reproductive health problems are a leading cause of death and disability for women and girls in developing countries. Young people bear the highest risks of HIV infection and unintended pregnancy. Millions of girls face the prospect of child marriage and other harmful practices. Much more needs to be done to to ensure a world in which all individuals can exercise their human rights.
