Global

The theme for this year’s International Day of the Girl Child, on 11 October, “Girls’ Progress = Goals’ Progress: A Global Girl Data Movement”, is a call for action for increased investment in collecting and analyzing girl-focused, girl-relevant and sex-disaggregated data.

UNFPA is a key stakeholder in the rights and well-being of women and girls globally, and a key contributor to the International Day of the Girl Child and beyond.
