UNFPA country offices in Asia and the Pacific region and faith-based organizations came together for a two-day consultation to assess the impact of their partnership in the areas of maternal health, gender equality, migration and youth welfare. Together with faith-based organizations, the consultation presented a unique opportunity to reflect on the progress towards achieving critical Millennium Development Goal (MDG) targets. This report documents the experiences and lessons learned from various initiatives of faith-based organizations in the region in addressing these issues.
