Convening Regional Economic Commissions (RECs) to follow up on Post-Shipment Testing of Condoms and Quality Assurance of Reproductive Health Commodities

Governments are duty-bound to ensure the safety of their citizens by ensuring the quality of medicines, medical devices and other products that are shipped to their countries, including condoms. This duty is shared by all development partners, including UNFPA, who procure commodities for countries. To this end, stringent measures are taken to ensure that commodities procured for distribution to recipient countries are of the highest quality possible.

MDG Momentum Countdown

The United Nations and partners are calling for renewed attention to the Millennium Development Goals as the target date for their achievement, by 31 December 2015, approaches. Friday, 5 April 2013 kicks off the countdown of the last 1000 days.

UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund, is marking this milestone with a variety of activities to amplify awareness and accelerate action on the MDGs. The Fund will draw particular attention to MDG5: to improve maternal health and universal access to reproductive health. It is the goal that lags most behind.
