The UNFPA partnership with the UK Government promotes rights and gender equality in Turkmenistan

The government of the United Kingdom is one of the long-standing partners of UNFPA in Turkmenistan supporting the programmes to empower women and girls so that they can make choices about their lives. 

In September 2021, UNFPA and the British Embassy in Turkmenistan signed a new cooperation agreement, which will be aimed at promoting a human rights-based, gender sensitive and inclusive engagement of the police with the population. The partnership will also include awareness raising interventions among the youth on the issues of positive gender social norms.
