Unite For Body Rights

“Through the UFBR program, we designed program on increasing the capacity of teachers and educators which will be on the forefront to educate young people.”

Unite For Body Rights – A Global Program to Support MDGs

It is one of Rutgers WPF Indonesia’s visions to create a conducive environment (with the supports from the government and people) for Indonesians to be free from violence, and to fulfill their equal rights and non-discriminative sexual and reproductive health services. In order to achieve this vision, we have developed specific program that can be distinguished by their design that combines their target group and the approach used by each program.

  • MenCare+ program, whose objective is to encourage the involvement of men in addressing issues on sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) and sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV)
  • ASK (Access, Services and Knowledge) program or Sobat ASK, targeted at marginalized youth, including those in the juvenile detention centers, youth with diverse sexuality, different ability, young people living with HIV and street/homeless children
  • Mainstreaming Gender and Sexual Diversity program, whose objective is to build common understanding and acceptance towards sexual diversity
  • Unite For Body Rights  (UFBR) program, aimed at encouraging the provision of comprehensive sexuality education, youth-friendly services for young people, and establish partnerships with civil organizations working on SRHR.  

For the UFBR program, we have designed several programs that will strengthen the capacity of teachers and peer educators who will be the front-liners in sharing comprehensive sexuality education for youth. We use two different training modules for junior and senior high schools, namely SETARA and DAKU! respectively. Education for young children is also part of the UFBR program. Following the training, information services for youth is provided at healthcare centers and clinic. Training on sexuality is also part of Comprehensive Sexual Education (CSE) method

In the implementation of program, Rutgers WPF Indonesia works with civil society organizations as the implementing partners. In April 2010, with the support of Rutgers WPF Indonesia, these implementing partners established One Vision Alliance (ASV) where they can support one another and share their success.

Members of the One Vision Alliance (ASV) are as follows:
