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.
Teachers from 10 schools in the Northern Region of Ghana have been trained on how to teach comprehensive reproductive health.The aim is to help educate teenagers at the junior high schools (JHS) about their bodies and the impact of early sexual activities on their lives. The training is under the NGO’s teacher facilitation training of ‘My World and My Life’ (MWML), which is being piloted in some schools to equip the beneficiary teachers with skills to teach sex education. The MWML curriculum is developed by Rutgers WPF.
