Rutgers continues to follow the latest developments around Covid-19 with great concern. Aside from worries about our families, friends and fellow citizens, the current situation is also troubling for our work on improving the sexual and reproductive health and rights around the world. Our heart goes out, especially, to those already vulnerable and disproportionately hit by this crisis.
Rigid gender norms have negative effects on both girls and boys, and inhibit Indonesia from fully benefiting from its economic growth potential, also known as the demographic dividend. These are key results from the Global Early Adolescent Study (GEAS) and the Youth Voices Research conducted in Indonesia as part of the pioneering research and advocacy programme, Explore4Action.
Across four countries, Prevention+ engages with men and boys, as well as women, to end gender-based violence (GBV). In Western Uganda, partner organisation Reproductive Health Uganda works with local communities towards our shared goal of violence-free societies.
This week the Prevention+ global partnership, committed to addressing the root causes of GBV, came together in Kigali for their annual ‘taking stock’ meeting. It was an opportunity to critically assess how far we have collectively come, and how far we still must go to help create a world without GBV and where healthy, respectful and equal relationships are the norm.
