United Nations Population Fund

The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) is a UN development agency engaged in campaigns, education, and consultation that promote women's empowerment, sexual and reproductive health, and development strategies informed by population dynamics. Since the landmark 1994 International Conference on Population and Development in Cairo, UNFPA has been committed to establishing universal access to reproductive health care and primary education by 2015, as well as reducing infant and maternal mortality, combating child marriage, and slowing HIV transmission; these goals have become part of the Millennium Development Goals. Many of its programs also target young adults in an effort to promote future social and economic development. UNFPA focuses in part on preventing sexual violence following natural disasters and other emergency situations. It has worked with many faith leaders to spread reproductive health information, such as a collaboration with the African Methodist Episcopal Church's Women’s Missionary Society in support of the Campaign to End Fistula.
联合国人口基金(UNFPA)是一个联合国发展机构,从事宣传、教育和咨询工作,以促进妇女赋权、性与生殖健康和由种群动态所提示的发展战略。人口基金于1994年在开罗召开具有里程碑意义的“国际人口与发展大会”,之后一直致力于在2015年前普及生殖保健和初级教育,以及降低婴儿和产妇死亡率,并减缓艾滋病毒的传播——这些目标已经成为 “千年发展目标”的一部分。它的许多计划还针对年轻的成人,努力促进未来经济和社会发展。人口基金的部分工作重点还包括防止自然灾害和其他紧急情况后的性暴力。它还曾与许多宗教领袖合作以传播生殖健康信息,例如它和“非洲卫理公会圣公会女传教士协会”合作,支持“消灭瘘管病运动”。
