Sex og Politikk - The Norwegian Association for Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights
Sex og Politikk - The Norwegian Association for Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights, consists of affiliated organizations, institutions and individual members.
Sex og Politikk was founded in 1969 and since its establishment been essential in the promotion of sexuality education in Norway, as well as securing access to safe contraceptives. Several of the organization's founding members were central in the work leading up to the law on abortion.
The organisation works for the development of better health care services, and to safeguard rights linked to sexuality and reproductive health, both in a national and international context. These areas are very important in strengthening women's rights and also for working towards gender equality and poverty reduction internationally. Political advocacy and informational events focusing on SRHR with a South perspective is therefore essential to our work. In Norway, Sex og Politikk offers a sexuality education programme "Uke Sex" for students, in addition to informing the general public about the importance of sexual and reproductive health and rights, and to highlight the challenges many people have when it comes to this controversial field.
