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.

My utmost concerns are for the safety and protection of civilians, especially women and children, whose fundamental human rights must be respected. UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund, is intensifying efforts to provide humanitarian relief, especially for the pregnant women of Iraq. All too often the...

“Women’s bodies have become a battleground over which opposing forces struggle,” says a new report about women in conflict. “Women are kidnapped and used as sexual slaves to service troops, as well as to cook for them and carry their loads from camp to camp. They are purposefully infected with HIV/AIDS, a slow, painful murder.” “Women, War and Peace: The Independent Experts’ Assessment on the Impact of Armed Conflict on Women and Women’s Role in Peace-building - By Elisabeth Rehn & Ellen Johnson Sirleaf” Commissioned by the United Nations Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM), the...
