“Throughout 2012, UNFPA, with support from its donors, partners, developing-country governments and other stakeholders, advanced its mission to deliver a world where every pregnancy is wanted, every childbirth is safe and every young person’s potential is fulfilled… “Our future success will depend on the extent to which we help change the lives of women and young people by ensuring they have the opportunities to shape their own futures.” —Dr. Babatunde Osotimehin
Backed by a record $981 million in donor support, UNFPA further tightened the focus of its work to increase the impact in the organization’s core areas of sexual and reproductive health, reproductive rights and maternal health to improve the lives of millions of women and young people in developing countries.

Global Initiatives UNFPA established a secretariat to lead a global review of progress towards achieving the Programme of Action of the 1994 International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD). UNFPA launched a social media campaign, Safe birth. Even here, to raise awareness about maternal health services in crises.
GLOBAL INITIATIVES On 11 July, the United Kingdom, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, UNFPA, and other partners co-hosted a London Summit on Family Planning, which mobilized political will and extra resources needed to give 120 million women access to family planning by 2020. Marrying Too Young was published on 11 October, the Day of the Girl Child. The report called on governments to end child marriage. UNFPA helped 22 priority countries in 2012 slow mother to-child transmission of HIV by supporting services that integrate sexual and reproductive health with HIV prevention and treatment.
