UNFPA Responds To U.S. Withholding Of Funds For 3rd Consecutive Year Under Kemp-Kasten Determination

Inter Press Service: U.S. Defunds UNFPA for Third Consecutive Year — on Misconceived Assumptions
“The Trump administration … has withheld its annual contributions to the U.N. Population Fund (UNFPA) — for the third consecutive year. … ‘This unfortunate (U.S.) decision will impede UNFPA’s crucial work to protect the health and lives of hundreds of millions of women and girls around the globe, including in humanitarian settings. Therefore, UNFPA hopes that the United States will reconsider its position,’ the U.N. agency said in a statement released July 15. … [The statement continues:] ‘UNFPA remains keen to maintain an open dialogue with the U.S. government’…” (Deen, 7/17).
