Netherlands - Financial

DateJuly 11, 2017

2017 Update: Although the total budget for development cooperation has been under pressure, the overall portfolio for sexual and reproductive health and rights of the Netherlands Ministry for Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation has remained stable or even slightly increased over the last few years. In 2017 around EUR 140 million (1/3 of our total SRHR and global health budget) was spent on family planning programs. The Netherlands announces the following pledges:   EUR 5 million earmarked for SRHR in humanitarian settings; EUR 11.5 million for Central Emergency Respond Fund. Non-earmarked but with a special emphasis on family planning and sexual health;  EUR 15 million for She Decides. Minister Ploumen already announced this at Global Citizen Festival Hamburg, 6 July. To emphasize the importance of family planning and sexual health services within humanitarian settings, the Netherlands makes EUR 5 million available for this purpose. The EUR 11.5 million contribution to Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF) under the new mechanism of results based financing for humanitarian aid, further underlines the need that access to family planning and sexual health services are fully part of life saving activities in humanitarian settings. With the second pledge for She Decides announced at Global Citizen Festival in Hamburg – earlier this year the Netherlands announced EUR 10 million for She Decides – the Netherlands continues to support those organizations affected by the Mexico City Policy. Through ongoing strategic partnerships (2016-2020) with several civil society coalitions, the Netherlands continues to engage with youth and adolescents in several countries in the South in order to strengthen access to sexual and reproductive health services and advocate for sexual and reproductive rights.

2012: The Netherlands committed €370 million in 2012 for sexual and reproductive health and rights, including HIV and health, and intends to extend this amount to €381 million in 2013 and to €413 million in 2015. This commitment is dependent on continued political support from new governments to be elected.
