SRHR Information and Education (SRHR I&E)
Rutgers has solid experience in strengthening the capacity of partners regarding the quality content creation and delivery of SRHR Information and Education. In this trajectory, we will support RHRN partners to put young people and a comprehensive approach to sexuality at the centre of the SRHR I&E, by applying principles of empowerment, gender equality and the human rights-based approach in the programme design as well as the materials and the pedagogic approaches for quality delivery (face-to-face and online) in educational, health and out of school sectors.
