UNFPA is the United Nations sexual and reproductive health agency.
Formed in 1969, the mission of the agency is to provide a safe environment for pregnancy and childbirth. UNFPA partners with governments, agencies and civil societies to develop this mission.
Some of the movements the UNFPA currently supports is healthcare for women and youth in over 150 countries, and the health of pregnancy in women who may face life threatening conditions before and during birth.
The agency also supports access to safe and modern contraceptives to help benefit 20 million women per year, and provide funding for health workers to attend training to ensure that childbirth is supervised by skilled and trained health attendants.

The Swedish association for Sexuality Education (RSFU), is a Swedish non-profit organisation who work on sexual and reproductive health and rights.
Founded in 1933, the member organisation, which is the Swedish national affiliate to the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF), works with education and advocacy through organizing conferences, courses and debates that tackle the issues within SRHR.
RFSU’s aim is to “create conditions for people to stand up for and claim their human rights in terms of sexual and reproductive health”. By doing so, they work to influence the Swedish government through action plans and advocacy work. The organisation also operates a SRHR clinic in Stockholm and a federal office where lawyers, experts and sexual prosecutors work with them.
