UNFPA Commended For Ending Maternal Mortality, Teenage Pregnancy

The First Lady of Liberia has commended the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) for its various interventions, particularly in ending maternal mortality and teenage pregnancy, among others, and at the same time, remaining fundamental to alleviating some of the major challenges confronting women and girls in the country.
Madam Kartumu Boakai made the statement when she held discussions with the UNFPA Liberia Country Team, headed by Madam Bidisha Pillai, on a number of issues surrounding women and girls’ empowerment in the country.
Madam Boakai, however, stressed the need for more collaborative efforts between the government and its many partners, noting that such strategic engagements with relevant stakeholders were paramount.
In what was described as a fruitful discussion held at the Executive Mansion office of the First Lady, the meeting also enabled the two institutions to exchange notes on their respective aspirations and initiatives, exploring potential opportunities for partnership.
For her part, Madam Pillai reaffirmed UNFPA’s commitment to partnering with the government of Liberia, including Madam Boakai’s office, in various ways possible, to elevate the voices of women and seek sustainable solutions to their plights.
Also speaking, Liberia’s immediate former Vice President, Jewel Howard-Taylor, who had accompanied the UNFPA Country Team, congratulated Madam Boakai on her ascendency to the Office of First Lady, and assured of her support.
