Belgian Development Cooperation considers gender equality a key focus area as well as a cross-cutting topic to be considered in all strategies, policies and actions. The Belgian Government’s work in the field of sexual and reproductive health and rights is guided by three cooperation principles: A human-rights based approach; a global and positive approach to sexuality and reproduction; and health care for all. Within this framework, key areas of intervention are: integration of sexual and reproductive health care into general health care; combating sexual violence, sexual exploitation, trafficking in women and children, and harmful practices such as female genital mutilation and child marriage; and addressing sexual and reproductive health and rights in emergencies, conflict situations and peace-building processes.

Specific areas of collaboration between Belgium and UNFPA include: sexual and reproductive health and rights in Burkina Faso, addressing HIV/AIDS, addressing gender-based violence in Morocco, preventing and treating obstetric fistula, and developing technology platforms to deliver sexual and reproductive health information.

Girls who are forced to marry and become mothers at a young age miss out on many opportunities. They leave school early and risk spending the rest of their lives in dependence. The fight against sexual violence and child marriage is crucial to strengthen the position of girls and women. That is why Belgium continues to join forces with UNFPA.
