UNFPA in Moldova

UNFPA in Moldova

UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund, is the lead United Nations agency for delivering a world where every pregnancy is wanted, every childbirth is safe and every young person’s potential is fulfilled. 
On the ground, UNFPA works in about 150 countries worldwide and nearly 20 countries in Eastern Europe and Central Asia. In Moldova, it has been present since 1995, more than 25 years by now.

UNFPA Moldova works in the areas of: 

  • sexual and reproductive health and rights
  • adolescents and youth empowerment  
  • gender equality 
  • population and development

We help the country address the demographic concerns, by improving population data to better understand and address the demographic changes, building the demographic resilience through intergenerational solidarity programs between young and older persons, and integration of family-friendly policies in the business environment.

Our priority remains on achieving gender transformation, social equity and ensuring continuation of the life-saving sexual and reproductive health information and services especially during emergencies, such as the current COVID-19 protracted crisis.

We focus on the most vulnerable and excluded populations, women and young people with disabilities, HIV-affected, older persons, low-income families, ethnic and sexual minorities, advancing their rights and needs, to make sure that no one is left behind.
