A group of politicians, including former ministers from various parties, recently published a call to continue investing in sexual health in a prominent newspaper. They emphasized the importance of ensuring women have the freedom to make choices about their bodies and reproduction, stating that it has a significant impact on their lives. The signatories highlighted the need for improved access to information, contraception, pregnancy care, and safe abortions, as they believe it contributes to building healthy societies where young people can thrive.

The politicians praised the Netherlands for being a leader in this field and providing crucial financial support for sexual health globally. They stressed the importance of maintaining this support, as sexual health services are often the first to suffer during conflicts or budget constraints. They also expressed concerns about the pressure on sexual health and rights due to misinformation and politicization, both in the Netherlands and abroad.

In addition to their call for continued investment in sexual health, the politicians urged for a greater focus on combating misinformation and fear-mongering that threaten sexual health and rights. They highlighted the need to address issues such as premature ejaculation, the orgasm gap between men and women, and changing attitudes towards sex to promote a healthier and more inclusive society.
