Johnstone Kuya talks about his experience and challenges working as a National Programme Coordinator in Kenya for the programme Get Up, Speak Out (GUSO), one of Rutgers’ key programmes. In this programme, six alliance partners are collaborating in seven countries to improve young people’s sexual health and rights.
The International Conference on Family Planning 2018 took place from November 12 to November 15 in Kigali, Rwanda. Rutgers was leading a number of side events at this conference. We summed up our ICFP experiences in a live-blog, which resulted in an inspiring recap.
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.
To ensure sexual and reproductive health and rights for all and to prevent gender-based violence, we must address negative sexual and gender norms and transform them into positive ones. To achieve this, we work with girls and women and boys and men and we are inclusive of gender and sexually diverse communities. The new GTA toolkit will help professionals implement Rutgers’ evidence-based way of working in existing programmes to improve the sexual health and rights of all, and end gender-based violence.
