Human Rights Day

Human Rights Day 2018

Statement by UNFPA Executive Director Dr. Natalia Kanem

On this day, 70 years ago, United Nations Member States adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which affirms that “all human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights”. UNFPA’s work is inspired by this landmark document and its founding principles of universality and inalienability. Human rights are both specific goals and guiding principles for all we do.
