Jahia, provider of Java based open source CMS solutions, today announced that the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) has selected Jahia CMS and partner Quoin to provide comprehensive support for UNFPA's international websites. The following is an interview with Brad Kain, Quoin co-founder and President.
Background Information: UNFPA is the United Nations Population Fund, an international development agency that promotes the right of every woman, man and child to enjoy a life of health and equal opportunity. UNFPA supports countries in using population data for policies and programs to reduce poverty and to ensure that every pregnancy is wanted, every birth is safe, every young person is free of HIV, and every girl and woman is treated with dignity and respect. The three core areas of their work - reproductive health, gender equality and population and development strategies - are inextricably related. Population dynamics, including growth rates, age structure, fertility and mortality, migration and more, influence every aspect of human, social and economic development. Reproductive health and women's empowerment powerfully affect, and are affected by, population trends. For each core area, UNFPA created large databases.
Interviewer: Hi Brad. Thanks for taking the time to sit down with us to discuss your latest win of the UNFPA content management project with Jahia CMS. Tell us about the UNFPA website project.
Brad Kain: UNFPA is a leader in digital media within the UN, offices throughout the world with a global website, 7 regional portals and over 100 country websites.
Interviewer: So what does the integration project look like? How does this fit with Jahia’s mission and what can these sites achieve with assistance from Jahia CMS?
Brad Kain: Quoin recently won a three-year contract with the United Nations Population Fund (www.unfpa.org) to provide Jahia CMS support and site development. We will work with this global mission-driven client to redesign the organization, regional, and country web sites. Our onshore/offshore team is looking forward to providing rapid and effective development support as the UNFPA focuses on the use of social media to engage visitors.
