How you can make a difference:
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’s new strategic plan (2018-2021), focuses on three transformative results: to end preventable maternal deaths; end unmet need for family planning; and end gender-based violence and harmful practices.
In a world where fundamental human rights are at risk, we need principled and ethical staff, who embody these international norms and standards, and who will defend them courageously and with full conviction.
UNFPA is seeking candidates that transform, inspire and deliver high impact and sustained results; we need staff who are transparent, exceptional in how they manage the resources entrusted to them and who commit to deliver excellence in programme results.
Comprehensive Sexuality Education is a key component of UNFPA’s new Strategic plan and an essential pillar of the upcoming revised UNFPA Adolescent and Youth Strategy. In December 2018 UNFPA signed an agreement with Norway to implement 3-Year project “Reaching those most left behind through CSE for out of school young people”. It aims to empower adolescents and young people from specific groups to receive the skills and capabilities to make informed choices about their sexual and reproductive health and right, and well-being. Youth leadership and meaningful engagement is a cross-cutting component of the Project.
