About Us

The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) is the United Nations sexual and reproductive health agency. Our mission is to deliver a world where every pregnancy is wanted, every childbirth is safe and every young person's potential is fulfilled.

In Sri Lanka, we deliver this mandate based on principles of human rights and gender equality by advocating for rights-based gender responsive & transformative policies that enable the full realization of sexual and reproductive health and rights for all. 

Improving sexual and reproductive health and rights is our key priority:



Achieving universal access to sexual and reproductive health is a key effort towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. 
UNFPA's efforts enable individuals, including young people in Sri Lanka, to develop the skills and acquire the knowledge and support needed to make informed choices about their bodies and lives.
For 50 years, UNFPA in Sri Lanka has been transforming the lives of millions of women, young people and the elderly.
