  • More than 40 per cent of the world’s population are under 25, they are shaping both humanity’s future, and its present. UNFPA is the lead United Nations agency working in over 150 countries to promote the sexual and reproductive health and reproductive rights of young people. We are committed to ensuring that young people have the information, services and supplies they need to make a safe, healthy and fulfilling transition from adolescence to adulthood. We see this as a moral obligation as well as a social, economic and political necessity.
