UNFPA Acting Director Natalia Kanem Discusses Organization’s New Focus, Impacts Of U.S. Funding Cuts In Devex Interview

Devex: Q&A: UNFPA chief on why it pays to have healthy youth
“…The UNFPA, led by its new acting executive director, Natalia Kanem, is driving at the connection between youth engagement — including access to sexual and reproductive health services and employment — and the economic gains developing countries stand to make over the next few decades. … Kanem — a pediatrician who assumed her new post in June after the unexpected death of her former boss, Babatunde Osotimehin — sat down with Devex at UNFPA’s midtown Manhattan office this week to discuss the organization’s new focus and the impact of U.S. funding cuts…” (Lieberman, 7/20).
