Zonta International supports UNFPA

For more than 10 years, Zonta International has proudly partnered with UNFPA to deliver critical life-changing and life-saving programs for the most vulnerable women and girls, improving health, eradicating violence against women and ending all forms of harmful practices.  

This week, the United States, one of UNFPA's founding members, made the decision to deny any future funding for UNFPA's life saving work, a decision that will ultimately have devastating consequences for women and girls worldwide. 

Please read this statement from Zonta International President Sonja Honig Schough and Past International President and International Advocacy Chairman Maria Jose Landeira Oestergaard in response to the United States' decision.
