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.
Rutgers works with PhotoVoice as an innovative method to measure the impact of our work on people’s sexual and reproductive health and rights. PhotoVoice gives individuals the opportunity to speak out, to generate data for research, advocacy or communication purposes. Do you want to facilitate a PhotoVoice training?

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.
As spring is setting in, we know it is time again to meet for the annual Commission on Population and Development (CPD). Between 11 and 15 April 2016, United Nations member states will come together in New York to discuss to what extent they are able to respect, protect and fulfil human rights. This includes sexual and reproductive rights and the rights of people who may need our particular attention today such as women, girls, youth and migrants. During its 49th meeting, the CPD will address the demographic evidence base that is necessary to measure progress in achieving sustainable development.
