MenCare+ engages boys and men to end gender based violence and increase gender equality. Rutgers WPF supports men in their roles as sons and brothers, husbands and fathers. We encourage expectant fathers to attend the births of their children and educate young men on sexual and reproductive health and rights and care giving.
Young people are naturally curious about sex and sexuality. Rutgers WPF asserts the right of young people to receive adequate education to make well-informed choices in relationships and their sexual lives. Comprehensive sexuality education means providing information and guidance about the physical and emotional aspects of growing up and starting relationships.
The female condom can give women greater power over contraception and HIV prevention. Women are more affected by HIV than men in developing countries and too often the female condom just isn’t available to them. Rutgers WPF and its partners in the Universal Access to Female Condoms Joint Programme are working to change that.
With a quarter of the world’s population under 24 years old and 90 percent of them living in developing countries, now is the time to invest in the sexual and reproductive health and rights of young people. This is essential for developing economies to be able to reap the benefits of the demographic dividend. This was the message of Young People and the Transformation of the Future, an interactive afternoon held in The Hague, The Netherlands on November 18.
