President Supports UN Population Fund

Last Friday, President Obama announced that the United States would resume funding for UNFPA (United Nations Population Fund). The fund has 180 other donor nations, working together to fight global poverty, improve the health of women and children, prevent HIV/AIDS, and provide family planning assistance to women in over 150 countries. US support has been withheld the past seven years, and President Obama's decision to restore this funding has been applauded by other world leaders.
