Summary

As healthcare systems become overburdened in the fight against COVID-19, for as little as $10 you can help UNFPA protect those most vulnerable to the ravishes of the disease. Your gift can provide safe delivery kits to pregnant women unable to access healthcare support, supply healthcare workers with essential protective equipment, and ensure that critical reproductive health services remain functional, guaranteeing that even amidst a global pandemic, the unique needs of women and girls are met.

Challenge

As an unprecedented global pandemic places extreme strain on healthcare systems around the world, our world's most vulnerable are put at great risk. COVID-19 threatens the stability of care of pregnant women, jeopardizes the delivery of vital reproductive and family planning services, and exposes frontline healthcare workers, 70% of whom are women, to having to fight a global pandemic without adequate protective equipment.

Solution

UNFPA, with your support, seeks to ensure that the fight against COVID-19 includes a fight to protect those that need it most, through the guaranteed delivery of necessary equipment for health workers, and the maintenance of prenatal, reproductive and psychological care for women and girls worldwide. This means mothers can still give birth safely, even when hospitals are in crisis mode, and women can continue to live happily and healthily through this period of global uncertainty.

Long-Term Impact

UNFPA's push to have necessary supplies reach all those in need will protect both those working to end COVID-19, and those whose lives could fall victim to its the terrible effects. While the whole world wrestles with this disease and how it has impacted the lives of individuals in every corner of the globe, your support of UNFPA will ensure that pregnant mothers, victims of gender-based violence, women with reproductive health needs, and those fighting on the frontline, can overcome this.
