This paper engages with CSE promotion in Bangladesh funded by the Dutch Government.

  4. Post-2015 negotiation briefs #1: comprehensive sexuality education

    Sexuality Education is the process of acquiring information and forming attitudes, beliefs and values regarding interpersonal relationships, affection, intimacy, body image and gender roles.

  6. Investing in youth for national development

    Despite the commitment of many policymakers and advocates to addressing the ever-increasing sexual and reproductive health needs of youth, calls for appropriate programs, services, and funding have gone largely unanswered.

  7. Sexual and Reproductive Health of Young People: Expanding the Research and Program Agenda

    This paper's focuses on areas of relatively poorly addressed or understood aspects of young people's sexual and reproductive health.

  9. Sexuality: a missing dimension in development

    Sexuality is of fundamental importance in the lives of all humans. Although sexuality is a natural part of human life it is often neglected and mainly dealt with in relation to reproduction, disease, violence and oppression. Sexuality related issues are often fraught with unease, shame and conflict, due to cultural, religious, political, social, economic, and other factors outside the control of individuals, particularly those who have less power in societies. …
