UNFPA: Providing Contraception and Sex Education

ADVANCED COMMITTEE

Women face an unequal burden to provide contraception. Contraceptives that require male participation account for only 27% of contraceptive use across the globe. This committee aims to discuss how and if the UN should bring more contraceptive and education options to women. While many liberal countries will likely support modernizing contraception and sex education in developing countries, many countries that would receive these resources face challenges with traditions and religous values, making them hesitant to allow women access to contraception and family planning. Delegates must consider how the UN will provide contraception in developing countries, raise funds, and provide health and family planning services to men and women.
