The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) is the Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) agency of the United Nations and leads the global effort to achieve a world where every pregnancy is wanted; every child birth is safe; and every woman and girl lives a life free from violence and abuse. UNFPA promotes the right of every woman, man and child to enjoy a life of health and equal opportunity, and applies a human rights and culturally sensitive approach, supported by evidence-based advocacy and policy dialogue to address issues of sexual and reproductive health, gender equality, youth and population dynamics. UNFPA’s work is guided by its aim to achieve three transformative results by 2030: zero preventable maternal deaths, zero unmet need for family planning, and zero gender-based violence and harmful practices.

UNFPA Sub-Regional Office for the Caribbean serves 22 countries and overseas territories in the English and Dutch-Speaking Caribbean. These include: Anguilla, Antigua and Barbuda, Aruba, The Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Bermuda, British Virgin Islands, the Cayman Islands, Curacao, Dominica, Grenada, Guyana, Jamaica, Montserrat, St Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, St. Maarten, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Suriname, Trinidad and Tobago and the Turks and Caicos Islands. Increasing national capacities to advocate for and deliver policies and programmes for access to integrated and quality sexual and reproductive health (SRH) and gender-based violence information and services is at the heart of UNFPA’s support in the Caribbean.
