It invites stakeholders worldwide to join UNFPA on its journey to achieve access to sexual and reproductive health for all, realise reproductive rights and accelerate the implementation of the Programme of Action of the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD). With the 2030 deadline looming to achieve the three transformative results – ending the unmet need for family planning, ending preventable maternal deaths and ending gender-based violence and harmful practices – the pressure is on us to make major strides in a short time.

Our commitment to achieving the three transformative results by 2030 remains the same, but our ways of achieving them will be dramatically transformed in light of global changes including “megatrends” that have changed the conditions under which we operate.

The new strategic plan reflects a changing world, and as we accelerate our efforts, transform our programmes, and motivate new partners we will prioritize the needs of people left furthest behind – particularly those living in poverty or with disabilities, people of African descent or from indigenous communities, LGBTQI+ people and the most vulnerable women and girls. And these results cannot be achieved without an increased focus on the rights and inclusive participation of women, adolescents and youth as agents of change.
