Verscheidene academische en medische experten
duiden (kwetsbaarheid voor) geweld in
verschillende levensfases: als kind, als jongere, als
volwassene en als oudere; en gaan daarna dieper in
op de vraag of geweld in de ene fase kan leiden tot
geweld in een andere.

Op welke leeftijd starten jongeren met seks? Vrijen ze veilig? Welke factoren beïnvloeden hun seksueel gedrag? Wat kunnen we doen om jongeren te ondersteunen op vlak van seksualiteit? En is het voor Vlaamse jongeren anders dan voor hun leeftijdsgenoten in Latijns-Amerika? Deze en andere vragen worden beantwoord tijdens deze lezing. Aan de hand van cijfers, video getuigenissen en praktijkvoorbeelden brengen de betrokken organisaties hun visie en ervaring ivm het werken rond seksualiteit bij jongeren.

Wereldwijd worden heel wat vrouwen slachtoffer van geweld. ICRH, het International Centre for Reproductive Health, (Universiteit Gent) probeert o.a. op basis van internationaal onderzoek dit probleem in kaart te brengen en zo ook bij te dragen tot de preventie ervan.

There are an estimated 22,480 women living in Belgium who come from countries where female genital mutilation is performed. Gynaecologists and midwives are faced with specific care issues related to female genital mutilation. Women with genital mutilation addressing our health system require a specific approach for medical, psychosocial and sexual matters related to FGM, but also in terms of communication.
ICRH is currently conducting a study on how to deal with female genital mutilation within the healthcare sector.

The staff members of ICRH Belgium went on a two-days retreat to discuss strategy and internal organisation.

Author/composer Marc Terreur launched a remarkable support action for ICRH projects.

From October 2012 on, ICRH’s founder, driving force and director Prof. Marleen Temmerman will take up a position as director of the Department of Reproductive Health and Research. As a consequence of this high-level appointment, which she considers as ‘a great honour and a great challenge’, Marleen will renounce many of her numerous mandates, including her position as senator in the Belgian parliament. We are very happy that she will however stay connected to Ghent University and ICRH.
