UNFPA Kosovo

Welcome to UNFPA Kosovo

UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund, is an international development agency that promotes the right of every woman, man and child to enjoy a life of health and equal opportunity. UNFPA supports countries in using population data for policies and programmes to reduce poverty and to ensure that every pregnancy is wanted, every birth is safe, every young person is free of HIV/AIDS, and every girl and woman is treated with dignity and respect.

UNFPA Kosovo was established in July 1999 as part of an emergency response programme with an overall goal to restore basic and safe conditions for women and their newborn babies. In early 2000, the Ministry of Health mandated UNFPA as the lead agency in reproductive health in Kosovo. UNFPA is committed to strengthening the capacity of all Kosovars to protect their reproductive health and those of their partners; to access and receive reproductive health services when needed and to strengthen institutional capacity to collect, analyse and utilize population-based data.
