Women, Girls & Population

Addressing the needs and rights of women and girls across the globe is essential to alleviating poverty, achieving social justice, and accelerating progress on all of our global development goals. 

The UN Foundation believes that empowering women and girls with educational and economic opportunities and securing their health and human rights is one of the best investments we can make for families, communities, and the world. We work with the UN and our NGO, corporate and government partners to promote gender equality; advance sexual and reproductive health and rights (including family planning); advocate for increased resources and funding for programs and activities benefitting adolescent girls; eliminate gender-based violence; combat climate change; and improve maternal health care using integrated health systems and mobile technology.

When progress is made in improving the rights of women and girls, our world thrives.
