UNFPA in Georgia

UNFPA started its assistance to Georgia in 1993 with the contraceptive supply project and the basic agenda to address the reproductive health concerns of the population.

The UNFPA full fledged Country Office in Georgia was established in 1999. UNFPA operations and programmes have been expanded during more than 15 years of partnership with Georgian Government, civil society organizations and donors aiming at implementation of the ICPD Programme of Action, MDGs and SDGs.

UNFPA 3rd Country Programme for Georgia (2016-2020) is country-specific and tailored to meet Georgia's needs and priorities in the area of sexual and reproductive health, population dynamics and gender equality through addressing the topical aspects ranging from the quality and accessibility of SRH information and services to advancing gender equality and reproductive rights and availability of quality data on population dynamics and its analysis for evidence-based policy-making.

UNFPA Global

UNFPA works in more than 150 countries and territories that are home to the vast majority of the world’s people.  UNFPA’s mission is to ensure that every pregnancy is wanted, every childbirth is safe and every young person’s potential is fulfilled. 

Guided by the 1994 Programme of Action of the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD), UNFPA partners with governments, civil society and other agencies to advance its mission. The ICPD Beyond 2014 Global Report, released in February 2014, revealed how much progress has been made and the significant work that remains to be done. The actions and recommendations identified in the report are crucial for achieving the goals of the ICPD Programme of Action and its linkage with the post-2015 development agenda.

The work of UNFPA is based on the premise that all human beings are entitled to equal rights and protections. We focus on women and young people because these are groups whose ability to exercise  their right to sexual and reproductive health is often compromised.

Our work on their behalf is informed by an understanding of population dynamics, human rights and cultural sensitivities.
