In the Netherlands, all kinds of contraception are available. Access to contraceptives is taken for granted, just as it is taken for granted by most people that one can make choices if and when to have children.
For World Contraception Day we have launched a campaign #HappyBirthControl asking public to show support for contraceptive access worldwide.
Young people are naturally curious about sex and sexuality. Rutgers asserts the right of young people to receive adequate education to make well-informed choices in relationships and their sexual lives. Comprehensive sexuality education (CSE) means providing information and guidance about the physical and emotional aspects of growing up and starting relationships.
Compared to many other countries the Netherlands has one of the lowest teenage pregnancy rates and scores low on STIs. Young people are generally well informed on sexuality and contraceptive use is high. We are often asked about sex education in the Netherlands, and how we have become so open minded about sex. Our film 'Dutch Lessons in Love' has tried to answer these questions.
What does the world look like in 15 years time? That depends on the opportunities we offer 10-year-old girls, today. This is the theme of The State of the World Population 2016 (UNFPA), that was launched worldwide on the 20th of October 2016. If we invest in the future of 10-year-old girls nów, this generation will be able to develop themselves into independent, capable, confident and well-educated young women. They can make a difference in 2030. In The Netherlands Rutgers together with UNFPA handed over the State of the World Population to 10 capable Dutch 10-year-old girls. This happened in the historical Hall of Knights in The Hague.
