International Day of Families

May 15 is the International Day of Families. This day reflects the importance the international community attaches to families.

Families are strongest and healthiest when all people are empowered to access health care, acquire an education, contribute to their homes and communities, and realize their full potential. UNFPA supports the rights of all people to live healthy, empowered and fulfilled lives.
