The Netherlands is a steadfast and generous partner of UNFPA. The country’s official development cooperation programme features sexual and reproductive health and rights as major targets for international assistance. The Netherlands’ policy aligns with the work of UNFPA, in particular its focus on sexuality education and services for young people, access to contraceptives, antiretrovirals and other medications, sexual and reproductive health care as part of basic health systems, and respect for the rights of vulnerable groups.

Specific areas of collaboration with the Netherlands include: family planning; reproductive health commodity security; sexual and reproductive health for adolescents and youth in Africa and Eastern Europe; and addressing gender-biased sex selection in Asia and the Middle East. In addition, contributions from the Netherlands support UNFPA Supplies, which increases women’s and girls’ access to modern contraceptives and reproductive health services.

Every woman and girl should be able to exercise her right to decide about her own future, about her own body. This of course includes access to contraceptives. UNFPA remains a key actor in achieving these goals.
