Donor Rankings, 2021
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 and Universal Health Coverage; combating sexual and gender-based violence, sexual exploitation, , and harmful practices such as female genital mutilation and child, early and forced marriage; focusing on the needs and the meaningful participation of young people and adolescents, and addressing sexual and reproductive health and rights in emergencies, conflict situations and peace-building processes.
Specific areas of recent and current collaboration between Belgium and UNFPA include: family planning through the UNFPA Supplies Partnership, addressing gender-based violence in Morocco, engagement for positive masculinities and gender equality in Palestine via the BraveMen project, Emergency Obstetric Care in Rwanda, and empowering and protecting young women and men through gender equality interventions in East-Jerusalem.
We need to ensure that everyone, whatever their gender, age or sex can make their own choice about their body, life and future. More has to be done to make sure that younger generations get equal chances to grow autonomous and empowered. Youth should always have access to sexual and reproductive health rights, services and information. That is why Belgium continues to join forces with UNFPA.Meryame Kitir, Minister of Development Cooperation and Great Cities Policy
