Make Motherhood Safe, Everywhere

Over 808 women die every day from preventable causes related to pregnancy or childbirth. With a generous contribution, you can help end maternal deaths and childbirth injuries so no woman delivering life fears losing her own.

Every Two Minutes, a Woman Dies During Pregnancy or Childbirth
Since UNFPA started working in 1969, the number – and rate – of women dying from complications of pregnancy or childbirth has been cut in half.

Yet 808 women still die every day from entirely preventable causes related to pregnancy or childbirth. This is about one woman every two minutes.

UNFPA promotes safe motherhood everywhere. By training healthcare professionals, supporting emergency obstetric care, and providing necessary equipment and resources no matter the circumstances, UNFPA strives to end all preventable maternal deaths by 2030.

Donations through this page will be used to support the overall work of Friends of UNFPA, which includes supporting the work detailed here, but also includes general operating expenses and supporting UNFPA’s most urgent programmatic needs.
