UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund, helps developing countries find solutions to their population problems. UNFPA began operations in 1969. It is the largest international source of population assistance. About a quarter of all population assistance from donor nations to developing countries is channelled through UNFPA. The Fund has three main programme areas: Reproductive Health including Family Planning and Sexual Health, Population and Development Strategies and Advocacy.

In Thailand in 2000, UNFPA continued its support to two pilot provinces to improve reproductive health services. In addition it gave support to research on reproductive health issues and collaborated with other agencies on HIV/AIDS projects.
