The 4th of September is World Sexual Health Day. A day to draw global attention to sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR), which is our expertise! With 50 years of experience Rutgers is a leader in this field. Our senior researcher, Miranda van Reeuwijk explains the impact of our unique approach of combining research, advocacy and interventions - nationally and internationally.
Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) are essential parts of everyone’s life. However, in the current national and international refugee crisis, SRHR is hardly recognized in humanitarian programmes. The Rutgers programme Forced Migration & SRHR, works to embed, integrate and mainstream SRHR programming in humanitarian settings, for young people, women and men.
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.
People regularly ask what the training sessions of Rutgers entail, for example on Comprehensive Sexuality Education. Maeva Bonjour, technical advisor at Rutgers, shares first hand her experiences in training people from 2 partner organisations in Benin.
