Väestöliitto is currently implementing two development cooperation projects: in Asia (Nepal) and in Africa (Malawi). In Malawi the focus is on improving sexual and reproductive health and rights and education of girls. In Nepal, we collaborate with WWF to provide sexual health education for young people.

In addition Väestöliitto cooperates with Kynnys ry (Threshold Association) in Central Asia, where the aim is to empower disabled women.

Väestöliitto has a strong focus on advocacy work. On the international front, we participate in the Countdown 2030 Europe -consortium whose goal is to increase the financial and political commitment to providing contraceptive methods everywhere.
