UNFPA, United Nations Population Fund, an international development agency, invites qualified organizations to submit proposals to support reaching UNFPA’s 3 transformative results as outlined in its Strategic Plan:

(a) end preventable maternal deaths;
(b) end the unmet need for family planning; and 
(c) end gender-based violence and all harmful practices, including child marriage and female genital mutilation.

The purpose of the Invitation for Proposals is to identify eligible international and national non-governmental organizations for prospective partnership with UNFPA Afghanistan, to support achievement of results outlined in the Country Program Document (CPD) under:

 Outcome 1: Increased availability and use of integrated sexual and reproductive health services, including family planning, maternal health and HIV, that are gender-responsive and meet human rights standards for quality of care and equity in access.

Outcome 2: Increased priority on adolescents, especially on very young adolescent girls, in national development policies and programmes, particularly increased availability of comprehensive sexuality education and sexual and reproductive health.

Outcome 3: Advanced gender equality, women’s and girls’ empowerment, and reproductive rights, including for the most vulnerable and marginalized women, adolescents and youth.

Outcome 4: Strengthened national policies and international development agendas through integration of evidence-based analysis on population dynamics and their links to sustainable development, sexual and reproductive health and reproductive rights, HIV and gender equality.


The overall goal of UNFPA’s interventions in the humanitarian context in Afghanistan is to provide life-saving reproductive health services; and prevent, mitigate and respond to gender-based violence cases among the affected population, including women, girls and young people.
