UNFPA is the United Nations sexual and reproductive health agency. Our mission is to deliver a world where every pregnancy is wanted, every childbirth is safe and every young person's potential is fulfilled. UNFPA Supports: ● Reproductive health care for women and youth in more than 150 countries – which are home to more than 80 percent of the world’s population ● The health of pregnant women, especially the 1 million who face life-threatening complications each month ● Reliable access to modern contraceptives sufficient to benefit 20 million women a year ● Training of thousands of health workers to help ensure at least 90 per cent of all child births are supervised by skilled attendants ● Prevention of gender- based violence, which affects 1 in 3 women ● Abandonment of female genital mutilation, which harms 3 million girls annually ● Prevention of teen pregnancies, complications of which are the leading cause of death for girls 15-19 years old ● Efforts to end child marriage, which could affect an estimated 70 million girls over the next 5 years ● Delivery of safe birth supplies, dignity kits and other life-saving materials to survivors of conflict and natural disaster ● Censuses, data collection and analyses, which are essential for development planning UNFPA is formally named the United Nations Population Fund.

The organization was created in 1969, the same year the United Nations General Assembly declared “parents have the exclusive right to determine freely and responsibly the number and spacing of their children.” UNFPA calls for the realization of reproductive rights for all and supports access to a wide range of sexual and reproductive health services – including voluntary family planning, maternal health care and comprehensive sexuality education. Since UNFPA started its work, the world has seen progress: The number and rate of women dying from complications of pregnancy or childbirth has been halved. Families are healthier. Young people are more connected and empowered than ever. But too many are still left. Over 760 million people are mired in extreme poverty. Sexual and reproductive health problems are a leading cause of death and disability for women in the developing world. Young people bear the highest risks of HIV infection and unintended pregnancy. Many millions of girls face the prospect of child marriage and other harmful practices, like female genital mutilation (FGM). Much more needs to be done to ensure a world in which all individuals can exercise their basic human rights, including those that relate to the most intimate and fundamental aspects of life. In 2018, UNFPA launched efforts to achieve three transformative results, ambitions that promise to change the world for every man, woman and young person: Ending unmet need for family planning, ending preventable maternal death, ending gender-based violence and harmful practices.

Panama is a family duty station and considered to be a safe place to live. However, like in any city around the world, it is always good to be aware of your surroundings and to be alert. There is a wide range of goods available in Panama and many modern shopping complexes and department stores and designer stores. There are suitable residential areas, accommodation options, good hospitals, schools, universities, banks, and a wide selection of restaurants. There are beaches, mountains and national parks in the rainforest that are said to have the broadest range of flora and fauna in the world. Panama does not have any serious health concerns to worry about, however, it is important to note that in some areas such as the Darien province, it is recommended to take precautions for malaria. The Centers for Disease Control website also recommends yellow fever vaccination for travel to Darien province and the San Blas islands. Weather: Panama has two seasons, the dry season, which is from January until late April or early May, and the rainy season which is the rest of the year. The daytime temperature ranges between 80 and 90 degrees Fahrenheit with the evenings being cooler by 5 to 10 degrees. The average humidity is 70%. Average cost of living: USD1,120.
