The UNFPA is looking for applicants who can transform, inspire, and produce high-impact and lasting results, extraordinary in how they handle the resources entrusted to them, (UNPFA Global Internship).
In order to create a society where every pregnancy is desired, every birth is safe, and every young person’s potential becomes a reality, UNFPA is the leading UN organisation. UNFPA’s strategic plan (2022-2025), reaffirms the relevance of the current strategic direction of UNFPA and focuses on three transformative results: to end preventable maternal deaths; end unmet need for family planning; and end gender-based violence and harmful practices.
These results capture our strategic commitments to accelerating progress towards realizing the ICPD and SDGs in the Decade of Action leading up to 2030. Our strategic plan calls upon UN Member States, organizations, and individuals to “build forward better”, while addressing the negative impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on women’s and girls’ access to sexual and reproductive health and reproductive rights, recover lost gains and realize our goals.
UNPFA Global Internship provides a monthly stipend and the stipend is based on the intern’s agreed place of work, which may be different from the duty station of the hiring office in cases of remote arrangements.
