Date:12/10/2009

men's empowerment and gender equality.”

“I am deeply honoured, and humbled, by this prestigious award,” said Ms. Obaid. “What makes it more significant for me is that I am receiving it on Human Rights Day. Such an honour will only make me, and UNFPA, more committed to promoting the human rights of women and girls who still face gender discrimination and violence, to advancing their empowerment and gender equality and to ensuring universal access to reproductive health.”

“Ms. Obaid’s leadership has been an inspiration to so many of us who recognize reproductive rights as human rights,” said Karen Mulhauser, president of UNA-NCA, which is one of the oldest and largest divisions of the United Nations Association of the USA.

The award was presented to Ms. Obaid during a ceremony held on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. The event is organized in partnership with The District of Columbia Office of Human Rights and the D.C. Commission on Human Rights, which seeks to eradicate discrimination, increase equal opportunity, and protect human rights in Washington, D.C.

UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund, is an international development agency that promotes the right of every woman, man and child to enjoy a life of health and equal opportunity. UNFPA supports countries in using population data for policies and programmes to reduce poverty and to ensure that every pregnancy is wanted, every birth is safe, every young person is free of HIV/AIDS, and every girl and woman is treated with dignity and respect. UNFPA -- because everyone counts.
