The empowerment of women has advanced significantly in the past 20 years, says the new Executive Director of the UN Population Fund, UNFPA. But more needs to be done.

Dr. Babatunde Osotimehin became the fourth Executive Director of the Population Fund in January of this year and told UN Radio’s Gerry Adams he hopes to focus on improving the condition of young women around the world.

UNFPA supports programmes of reproductive health in more than 150 countries, territories and areas.
