Body & Rights has been developed by Sensoa the expertise center for sexual health and member association of IPPF in Belgium and commissioned by the Institute of Tropical Medicine and Be-cause Health, the Belgian platform for international health. The free tool is aimed primarily at Belgian diplomats and everyone else active in Belgian development cooperation, but is also freely accessible to everyone who is interested in the topics.
The e-tutorial covers a wide range of topics in the field of sexual and reproductive rights and health: safe motherhood, sexual violence, child marriage, female genital mutilation, HIV, STIs, family planning and sexual rights. Through interactive video modules followed by multiple choice questions on bodyandrights.be, everyone can quickly develop their knowledge on these themes.
Sexual rights in the field
Announcing his support for the initiative, Alexander De Croo said: “This tool contributes to one of my major policy priorities: promoting sexual and reproductive health and rights. Thanks to 'Body & Rights’, stakeholders in Belgian development cooperation and Belgian foreign policy can now learn online about SRHR. This is important because it will better equip them to address these topics in development programs in the field.”
Benefits of family planning?
What are the societal benefits of voluntary access to family planning? How do you address the rights of LGBT people in countries where sexual minorities are criminalized? Why is female genital mutilation so widespread? By following the e-tutorial 'Body & Rights', you will find answers to these and dozens of other questions. Body & Rights consists of seven modules, each lasting 20 minutes to half an hour. Each module covers one overarching theme. On the basis of presentation videos (in Dutch and French) the e-tutorial gives an overview of different aspects of SRHR. Photos, videos and infographics illustrate the learning content and results in a visually appealing tool. The presentations are followed by multiple-choice questions encouraging interaction with the learner. Anyone who follows the full e-tutorial will receive a certificate that is supported by Sensoa, the Institute of Tropical Medicine, Be-Cause Health and the Belgian development cooperation.
