Key UNFPA actions

Advocacy for the health and rights of women and girls has long been a major part of the work of UNFPA. As a leader in HIV prevention and in sexual and reproductive health, UNFPA works to reduce the impact of the epidemic on women and girls by:

Promoting gender equality Empowering women to exercise their full panoply of human rights Reducing the vulnerability of women and girls to HIV Increasing access to sexual and reproductive health, including to commodities such as male and female condoms Working to end all forms of violence against women, and other practices that put women and girls at risk, such as early marriage Preventing mother-to-child transmission Advancing the rights and sexual and reproductive health of women living with HIV Involving men to change behaviour that puts their partners at risk Leveraging the power of partnership

UNFPA is part of the Global Coalition on Women and AIDS, a worldwide network of civil society groups, governments, UN agencies, and concerned citizens who have come together to make the AIDS response work better for women. A dynamic, diverse, but coherent alliance, the Coalition is dedicated to empowering women to take control of their own lives in a world with AIDS. The alliance:

Builds awareness of the increasing global impact of AIDS on women and girls Helps meet a series of ambitious international targets; to support the wider global AIDS response Improves prevention activity for women and girls Addresses severe societal and legal inequities which compound the impact of HIV and AIDS on women and girls

UNFPA, along with the International Planned Parenthood Federation and Young Positives, co-convene the GCWA thematic area on HIV prevention in young women and girls.
