The United Nations Office for Partnerships serves as a gateway for partnership opportunities with the United Nations family. It promotes new collaborations and alliances in furtherance of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and provides support to new initiatives of the Secretary-General.
UNOP was created in 2006 to strengthen system-wide coherence in the establishment of operational relationships with global partners of the United Nations; to provide support for the United Nations Democracy Fund; and to support partnership initiatives from non-State actors or United Nations entities in the light of General Assembly resolutions on the importance of engaging public and private sector stakeholders in the implementation of the Millennium Declaration.
UNOP covers the four priority areas mentioned below:
- Global Health
- Women, Girls and Population
