Statement of UNFPA Executive Director, Dr. Babatunde Osotimehin, on the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, 25 November 2016

This is 2016 and yet one in three women worldwide still experiences or has experienced some form of physical or sexual violence, usually perpetrated by someone she knows. Moreover, millions of women and girls have been subjected to other forms of violence and harmful practices, such as female genital mutilation, which affect an estimated 200 million women and girls, or child marriage, with one in three girls in developing countries being married off before the age of 18. more

Press Release - State of the World Population (SWOP) Report Launch 2016

The annual flagship State of the World Population (SWOP) Report of the United Nations Population Fund for 2016 focuses on investing in the 10-year-old girl. The SWOP Report is launched every year to raise awareness on important population and development issues. Ten is a pivotal age for girls everywhere, as puberty approaches. In some parts of the world, a girl at this age enjoys limitless possibilities and begins making choices that will influence her education and, later, her work life.

Statement of UNFPA Executive Director, Dr. Babatunde Osotimehin, on the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty, 17 October 2016

Statement of UNFPA Executive Director, Dr. Babatunde Osotimehin, on the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty, 17 October 2016 To eradicate poverty – like any other goal to improve the human condition – we need to fully understand the world’s demographics. Poor countries with burgeoning youth populations may find it difficult to meet many of our global development goals, as they face more people entering primary and secondary school age, more people looking for health care, and many more entering labour markets, looking for productive jobs in the coming years. more

Message of UNFPA Executive Director Dr. Babatunde Osotimehin on the International Day of the Girl Child, 11 October 2016

Statement of UNFPA Executive Director, Dr. Babatunde Osotimehin, on the International Day of the Girl Child, 11 October 2014 “Is anyone out there even thinking of improving our lives?” asks Susmita, a teenager from Odisha, India. Susmita has never gone to school. She tends the few animals her family owns and attends to household chores. Like more than one in three girls in her community, she may be married before turning 18. She dreams about going to school – even just for one day. more
