UNFPA calls for the realisation of reproductive rights for all and supports access to a wide range of sexual and reproductive health services – including voluntary family planning, maternal health care and comprehensive sexuality education. UNFPA works in more than 150 countries and territories that are home to the vast majority of the world’s people with the mission to ensure that every pregnancy is wanted, every childbirth is safe and every young person’s potential is fulfilled.
UNFPA Country Office in Serbia opened in 2006. Work of UNFPA in Serbia is aligned with national priorities, the United Nations Development Assistance Framework (2016-2020), the UNFPA Strategic Plan, 2014-2017 and the country’s aspiration for European integration. Applying a human rights-based approach in all interventions, activities of UNFPA are guided by four key priorities: (a) access to affordable, integrated sexual and reproductive health services that are of high quality and meet human rights standards; (b) strengthened accountability in order to eliminate all forms of discrimination; (c) empowerment of marginalized groups; and (d) development of human rights-based population policies. The programming strategies include advocacy, policy dialogue and advice, capacity building and knowledge management.
