ABOUT THE PROJECT
In order to enable young people to achieve optimal health, it is necessary to simultaneously offer them relevant information and education and also offer them support during development of their life skills. Young people usually learn about basic terms regarding sexuality through reality shows, sensationalistic media and social media. Thereby, they do not receive adequate information on prevention and potential risks for their reproductive health.
Lack of health-related education is the cause of the situation where man young people make important decisions that can impact their well-being in future. Reproductive health is not included in formal education as a topic, so many young people are not informed even about the basic facts.
Therefore, the main goal of the project “REthink your health”, within which this site has been developed, is creating an access to non-formal education which will enable young people to inform and educate themselves about their reproductive health.
In order to achieve this goal, within this project:
Main results of the project are curricula for education on reproductive health, prevention and support systems, developed by numerous youth workers and reproductive health experts.
Project “REthink your health” is supported by Tempus Foundation as a part of Erasmus+ Program by European Union and is implemented by: Chance for Parenthood (Serbia) an Connect International (Belgium).
