About Rutgers Indonesia
Rutgers Indonesia was previously known as the WPF Indonesia -established in 1997. Rutgers WPF Indonesia was formed after the merger between the Rutgers Nisso Group and Rutgers in 2010.
There are still many challenges around sexual and reproductive health and rights in Indonesia: people being comfortable with their bodies, choice of partner and how many children they will have and being free from domestic violence, sexual harassment, or rape.
Rutgers Indonesia works in partnership to provide youth-friendly access to comprehensive sexuality education and information and sexual health and reproductive services, promotes diversity and tolerance and strives to prevent violence against women and children.
