UNFPA East and Southern Africa (Johannesburg)
UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund, promotes the right of every woman, man and child to enjoy a life of health and equal opportunity. The Fund works in partnership with governments, other United Nations agencies, communities, NGOs, foundations and the private sector to raise awareness and mobilize the support and resources needed to achieve this mission. To face Africa's development challenges head on, in 2013 UNFPA established two regional offices in Africa – East and Southern Africa (ESA) and West and Central Africa (WCA). The East and Southern Africa Regional Office (ESARO) is based in Johannesburg, South Africa, and the West and Central Africa Regional Office (WCARO) is based in Dakar, Senegal. Each Regional Office has 23 Country Offices (COs). The Liaison Office (LO) is located in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
