Why the United States Should Increase Funding for the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA)
The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) serves as an international leader for sexual and reproductive health and rights, providing lifesaving family planning and reproductive health programs in low- and middle-income countries around the world. For decades, anti-choice administrations have sought to bar U.S. contributions to UNFPA, citing the Kemp-Kasten amendment as justification. Consistent U.S. funding for UNFPA programs is crucial to improving the long-term health of women and girls, pregnant people and their families, as well as achieving U.S. global health and gender equality goals.
