Why the United States Should Restore Funding for the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA)
The UNFPA supports family planning and reproductive health programs in developing countries that save women’s lives. UNFPA provides international leadership on population issues and is a key source of financial assistance for these important programs. Recently, the Trump-Pence administration decided to cut off all U.S. contributions to UNFPA, citing the Kemp-Kasten Amendment as its justification. Restoring U.S. funding for UNFPA programs is crucial to improving the health of women and their families, addressing demographic trends and promoting sustainable development.
