The Australian Parliamentary Group on Population and Development hosted a roundtable to welcome UNFPA's new Asia-Pacific Regional Director, Bjorn Andersson, the Director of its Pacific Sub-Regional Office, Bruce Campbell, and Salli Davidson, head of the Asia Pacific Regional Office Programme and Humanitarian Support Team.
They spoke of the life-saving outcomes they've managed to achieve thanks to Australia's support, and the three Transformational Results they are working towards under the Sustainable Development Goals:
Zero maternal deaths
Zero unmet need for family planning
Zero gender-based violence and harmful practices against women and girls
Australia is a leading voice for global gender equality. It is a committed donor to UNFPA, funding key aspects of its lifesaving work across Asia and the Pacific.
