Description/achievement of initiative

The Netherlands endorses the Global Strategy for Women's and Children's Health, as the effort to ensure that women's and children's health issues have the priority they deserve in the 21st century. In 2011 the Netherlands' Parliament approved development policies focusing on sexual and reproductive health and rights including HIV/AIDS, food security, water and security and governance issues. The Netherlands directly supports efforts to improve the health of women and children through our substantial core contributions to UNICEF, UNFPA and UNAIDS. In addition, the Netherlands has allocated EUR 29 million in 2011 to the Global Programme to enhance Reproductive Health Commodities Security and the Maternal Health Thematic Fund; EUR 55 million to the Global Fund to fight AIDS Tuberculosis and Malaria; and will maintain its ongoing support to the GAVI Alliance for the period 2011-2015.
