Joint statement by Belgium, United Kingdom and the Netherlands at the Family Planning Summit in London
As donors, we commit to making our humanitarian funding work harder for women and girls. In line with our commitments at the World Humanitarian Summit, our own bilateral humanitarian funding already considers sexual and reproductive health and the rollout of the Minimum Initial Service Package for reproductive health.
Going forwards we will ensure that our core funding to the humanitarian system will strengthen results on protecting and empowering women and girls, including addressing sexual and reproductive health and rights.
We know that a lack of open and accessible data is an issue in humanitarian contexts already, and when it comes to SRHR, this is exacerbated. We fully endorse the roadmap for data, monitoring and accountability launched at the Family Planning Summit, as a means of improving global performance on family planning/SRHR, and together we will look to align our humanitarian funding requirements to drive results for women and girls, and specifically for sexual and reproductive health and rights.
