Helping Girls Stay in the Game

PORTLAND, Jamaica - Globally, about 19% of young women in developing countries become pregnant before the age of 18. Girls under 15 account for 2 million of the 7.3 million births that occur to adolescent girls under 18 every year in the developing countries across the globe. Adolescent pregnancies occur with varying frequency across regions and countries. What is common to every region, however, is that girls who are poor, live in rural or remote areas and who are illiterate or have little education are more likely to become pregnant than their wealthier, urban, educated counterparts. - See more at: http://lac.unfpa.org/noticias/helping-girls-stay-game-0 more

International Day of the Midwife 2015

Today, on the International Day of the Midwife, we stand in solidarity with midwives worldwide and thank them for the life-saving work they do.

There is no stronger testament to their care and commitment than baby Obada, the 3,000th baby delivered safely at the women’s clinic in the Za’atari Syrian refugee camp in Jordan. Since the clinic started providing normal delivery services in June 2013, all babies have been born healthy and the infant and maternal death rate is zero. more

International Women's Day 2015

During the past 20 years, we have witnessed remarkable advances in promoting the human rights and dignity of women and girls and their full and equal participation in society.
The International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) in Cairo, and the Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing bolstered progress for women’s rights to make their own choices about their bodies and their futures.
For the first time, world leaders proclaimed sexual and reproductive health and reproductive rights as human rights integral to gender equality and women’s dignity and empowerment. These rights are essential for the enjoyment of other fundamental rights, for eradicating poverty and for achieving social justice and sustainable development.
Today, on International Women’s Day, we celebrate the progress we have made. And, we pledge to redouble efforts to complete these unfinished agendas. We will not stop until we cross the finish line and realize equality between girls and boys and women and men.    more
