How you can make a difference:

UNFPA is the lead UN agency for delivering a world where every pregnancy is wanted, every childbirth is safe and every young person’s potential is fulfilled. The Fund operates globally since 1969 in more than 150 countries and territories. UNFPA focuses on women and young people, because these are the groups whose rights are often compromised UNFPA has been active in Ukraine since 1997.

In accordance with the organisational mandate and national development priorities of Ukraine, UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund, implements a country programme of technical assistance to Ukraine for 2018-2022. Among several priorities, the programme seeks to contribute to the development of robust national system of response and prevention of domestic and gender-based violence (GBV), establish functional intersectoral coordination and accountability mechanisms and enhance institutional capacities at the national and regional levels to ensure that majority of gender-based violence survivors seek and have access to good quality survivor-centred services, and Ukrainian society finds GBV unacceptable.

Alongside this development work and driven by the humanitarian consequences of the armed conflict in eastern Ukraine, UNFPA participates in the development and implementation of the annual Humanitarian Response Plans (HRPs) of the United Nations Humanitarian Country Team in Ukraine to provide support to internally displaced persons (IDPs), returnees, host communities and people who remain in the conflict areas. More specifically, UNFPA mostly contributes to the work of health and protection clusters within the HRPs and leads the gender-based violence (GBV) sub-cluster.

UNFPA is seeking highly-motivated candidates that share our passion of making a sound contribution to creating a Ukrainian society free from domestic and gender-based violence. We need strong professionals who transform, inspire and deliver high impact and sustained results.
