The Ministry of Women of Women, Children and Poverty Alleviation is a proud partner of the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) in targeting the most vulnerable of our women and children.
Minister for Women, Children and Poverty Alleviation, Lynda Tabuya highlighted this to the delegation from UNFPA that paid her courtesy call yesterday.
Ms Tabuya acknowledged the UNFPA for its provision of funding to support midwives, village health workers, youth volunteers and provided dignity kits and other resources for Women Friendly Spaces.
“These Women Friendly Spaces are results of a lot of logistics and planning which have contributed to the access of safe and non-stigmatising Gender- Based Violence (GBV) support along with reproductive health services,” Ms Tabuya said.
She expressed her interest in working closely with UNFPA in delivering a world where women are taken of, every childbirth is safe and a young person’s potential is fulfilled.
Meanwhile the delegation from UNFPA was led by the Director UNFPA and Representative, Lori Kato and included the Assistant Representative, Virisila Raitamata and Program Specialist, Edith Akiror.
Mr Kato took this opportunity to brief Minister Tabuya on the work carried out by the organisation and partnerships it has with Ministry of Women, Children and Poverty Alleviation.
