DATA INTERN (Remote, Stipend)
USA for UNFPA, established in 1998 and headquartered in New York City, is the US National Committee for UNFPA, the United Nations sexual and reproductive health and rights agency. We support the world’s most vulnerable women and girls to realize their fullest potential and are working toward achieving:
A world where women become pregnant only when they want to (ending the unmet need for family planning);
A world where giving birth is safe for every mother and child (ending preventable maternal deaths); and
A world where women and girls live free from violence and harmful practices (ending violence against women.)
Under new leadership, USA for UNFPA has developed an ambitious strategy to raise $100 million from the private sector for UNFPA’s lifesaving work by 2030. As part of that effort, we are seeking to grow our team.
