About Organization

UNFPA is the lead UN agency for delivering a world where every pregnancy is wanted, every childbirth is safe and every young person's potential is fulfilled. 

UNFPA Pakistan

The world’s sixth most populous country, Pakistan contends with the risk of natural disasters, a large and growing youth bulge, and entrenched poverty and inequality, all of which pose significant challenges to delivering reproductive health services. The contraceptive prevalence rate has stagnated, along with a very low number of skilled-attendance at births. Through policy advocacy and national capacity development, UNFPA helps to accelerate progress on MDG5 for a quality and increased coverage of reproductive health and family planning services. UNFPA also supports the strengthening of data collection and analysis related to population issues.
