The programme was formulated through a consultative and participatory process. The Government took a leading role in this process to ensure programme ownership and sustainability.
The UNFPA country programme was developed in close cooperation with national partners, the United Nations system and donors, within the United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF), approved on December 15, 2005. The UNDAF goal is to support the accession of Moldova to the European Union and the policy priorities of the Government, and to address the needs of vulnerable groups through three priority areas of assistance:(a) good governance; (b) reducing regional and local disparities; and (c) access to quality basic services. UNFPA role, programme contributions and partnership strategies within the UNDAF are based on conclusions and recommendations of the Joint Strategy Meeting.
The UNFPA Country Programme 2007-2011 (extended to December 31, 2012) is aligned with the development priorities and goals of the Government.
These include the MDGs; the goals and objectives of the ICPD and its five-year review (ICPD+5); the EU - Moldova Action Plan; the EGPRSP; and the principles of human rights. The country programme has three components:
(a) Reproductive Health;
(b) Population and Development;
Human rights, reproductive rights, advocacy and BCC are cross-cutting issues to be addressed throughout the programme.
