Janhit Mei Jaari: A Sex Ed Campaign by Pratisnadhi for college students

Are you a student of Delhi University?

How much do you know about sexual health?

Would you like to help us understand sexual behaviour among university students?

Compared with older adults, sexually active adolescents aged 15–19 years and young adults aged 20–24 years are at higher risk of acquiring STDs for a combination of behavioral, biological, and cultural reasons. For instance, according to the Centre for Disease Control, more than 62% of all reported Chlamydia cases were from persons aged between 15 and 24.

Sexual health education and awareness really is the need of the hour, and burying our head in the sand like the proverbial ostrich isn’t the solution.

Despite the overall rise in sexual activity and openness in the youth, there is still a huge lack of understanding in areas like contraceptives and STD prevention. This is why Pratisandhi, a youth-led non-profit organisation working towards sexual health and education among adolescents and the youth community in India, has launched the Janhit Mei Jaari Campaign for students of Delhi University.

This campaign aims to learn about the sexual health of college students. This data will help the foundation in developing better content for raising awareness and voice youth concerns based on sex education, as well as educate people on topics like prevention of unwanted pregnancies and STDs.

If you are a student in Delhi University, and have a few minutes to spare, please fill in the survey, and help us gather this extremely valuable information.
