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.

Winning the war in Afghanistan is not the same as keeping the peace. Here I would like to correct a common misconception, mostly produced by the media. Achieving peace and building communities and nations are considered in Islamic theology as the highest form of Jihad (Al-Jihad Al-Akbar), and Jihad means, "the effort used to accomplish a goal". Afghanistan holds many lessons. Here's one: When rulers deprive women of their basic rights and freedoms, and bar them from public and political life, they lead their country to ruin. Now we must show how women, alongside men, can lead a country to...
