“Our goal is to have an Afghanistan where every pregnancy is wanted; every child birth is safe; where there is no gender-based violence and where the potential of every young person is fulfilled,” said Mr. Koffi Kouame.

In welcoming the Country Representative, Mr. Zaman commended the work of UNFPA: “We have seen how the wonderful work of UNFPA Afghanistan has helped save lives. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs will always be there to support and facilitate the work of UNFPA as a partner.”
