The world is in need of zero gender-based violence, zero preventable maternal death and Zero unmet need for family planning. In a bid to make lives better, the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) has come up with three world programmes — zero gender-based violence, zero preventable maternal death and Zero unmet need for family planning.

Zero Gender-based Violence and Harmful Practices

As of now, 18 Per cent of partnered girls and women aged 15 or older are subjected to physical, psychological and sexual violence by former or present partner, as per the UNPF. As per estimates, 4.1 million girls are subjected worldwide to female genital mutilation annually and 12 million are subjected to child marriage annually.

Meanwhile, the UNFPA said that they have made some achievements in 2019. They said that 763,616 girls and women who were subjected to violence had access to medical or psychological support services. Moreover, 2,550,290 of them got child marriage prevention or protection services. The UNFPA also said that 336,777 women and girls accessed services to prevent or address impact of female genital mutilation.
