Transparency & Accountability / Education On Sexuality / Jakarta (Indonesia)
For young people in Indonesia, especially the unmarried, sexuality is an area of uncertainty and confusion. Information on Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) is incomplete or absent in educational materials at school, and often misinterpreted or obscured by religious and cultural values in the public sphere
Hivos and Rahima developed the ‘Strengthening Youth Access to Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights in the Moslem Community ‘in 2012. This three-year programme aims to expand the knowledge of sexual reproductive health and rights within the Moslem community, especially among youth in pesantren, to ultimately change behavior in response to SRHR issues, as well as to change SRHR policies at schools, locally and nationally. The programme runs in Banyuwangi, Jombang, Kediri, and Lamongan, all of which are in East Java.
