The Universal Access Project, a project of the United Nations Foundations, convenes an innovative community of philanthropists, advocates and companies striving for a world where all people can realize their sexual and reproductive health and rights.
With its direct connection to the United Nations and partnerships with best-in-class advocates and global companies, the Universal Access Project is in a unique position to mobilize policy and funding across the global sexual and reproductive health, rights and justice community and the private sector to contribute to a more just, equitable world.
The road to “build back better” will be long and arduous – and we need your help. We invite change-making philanthropists to join us to advance this movement and ensure that everyone has the right to determine their own future.
Advancing U.S. Foreign Policy:
The Universal Access Project works to advance U.S. leadership on global sexual and reproductive health, rights, and justice through a pooled fund supporting best-in-class advocates; through strategic communications, media engagement, and direct advocacy; and through its unique role convening civil society, government, and multilateral partners in pursuit of health and rights for all.
After unprecedented efforts to restrict sexual and reproductive health, rights and justice at home and abroad, the Universal Access Project, together with its partners, has laid the groundwork for a bold and progressive U.S. foreign policy agenda on sexual and reproductive health, rights, and justice, and will remain united to hold our country’s leadership to account in undoing the damage of the past and reconstructing a new, transformative agenda.
Driving Private Sector Action:
The Universal Access Project also leads the Private Sector Action for Women’s Health and Empowerment initiative, which mobilizes corporate leadership on workplace women’s health, rights, and empowerment in global supply chains that employ millions of women.
The Initiative convenes leading global companies to take meaningful and systemic action to meet the health and well-being needs of women in their supply chains, while partnering with civil society organizations to hold this action to account. To date, the Initiative has convened 15 companies to commit to reach a combined 750,000+ women workers and community members in global supply chains over the next decade – even in challenging times.
