Health promoting SRHR-activities for people who are asylum seekers

About the project

The project is financed by the Västra Götaland County Administrative Board and consists of health-promoting SRHR interventions (Sexual and reproductive health and rights) for asylum seekers living in asylum accommodation. The project offers asylum seekers in asylum accommodation lectures on sexual and reproductive health and rights as well as information on HIV and other sexually transmitted infections linked to Swedish laws and Swedish society. The lectures are based on five central subject areas:

  • Rules and norms
  • Anatomy and emotional states
  • Language and communication
  • HIV and sexually transmitted infections
  • Condom knowledge

We constantly work based on availability, which is why the lectures and information meetings have taken place on the premises of Restad Gård’s asylum accommodation. This is to enable participation to a greater extent.

  • through knowledge increase well-being and sexual health as a more conscious behavior reduces the spread of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections
  • through knowledge increase the conditions to be able to decide over one’s own body without coercion, violence or discrimination. 
  • through knowledge convey the right to decide over one’s own sexual health and reproduction

Further development

Noaks Ark Göteborg and Västra Götaland see a continued need to inform and work to increase knowledge towards new arrivals and asylum seekers. We strive to continue our work in order to be able to meet the demand we have encountered from asylum seekers. They have many questions, thoughts and feelings regarding sexual and reproductive health and rights and we want to be there to answer these.
