Ensuring women and adolescents girls’ access to family planning

Ensuring women and adolescents girls’ access to family planning

UNFPA Supplies supports 46 countries with the greatest need – almost half of which are facing humanitarian crises – to build stronger health systems and widen access to a reliable supply of reproductive health and contraceptives as a cornerstone of sustainable development. These supplies not only save lives but empower women. Girls with access to family planning can stay in school and complete their education. Women’s autonomy within their households is increased and their earning power is improved. UNFPA Supplies is an EU co-funded programme - https://www.unfpa.org/unfpa-supplies
