UNFPA in Jordan

How does UNFPA Jordan Work?
UNFPA Jordan partners with government, other United Nations agencies, communities, Non Governmental Organizations, foundations and the private sector to advocate and mobilize resources to achieve sustainable development. UNFPA is fully committed to a more effective, coherent and better coordinated United Nations system that delivers as one.
UNFPA Jordan is currently supporting the Eighth Country Programme of Cooperation (2013 - 2017) which was developed within the overall framework of the United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) and the Common Country Assessment (CCA).  The process of developing the CCA and the UNDAF was jointly conducted by the Government of Jordan and the United Nations organizations in Jordan.
UNFPA Jordan is committed to the government to focus on three main areas in the current country programme, which are:
1.  Population Dynamics
2.  Maternal And New born Health
3.  Gender Equality and Reproductive Health
In addition to the Regular Country Programme; UNFPA Jordan started its Emergency Program in Jordan in early 2012, to respond to the reproductive health needs of Syrians women and girls and to ensure providing them with high quality life-saving protection services.
As part of its Emergency Programme, UNFPA works with national and international partners to provide services in three specific areas:
-      Providing reproductive health services and promoting reproductive rights
-      Gender based violence prevention and response
-      Promoting healthy life styles, involving and responding to the needs of Young People.
