The aim of the seminar was to equip staff to provide accurate information and education regarding sexual and reproductive health issues.

The seminar also aimed to address the following questions:

  • How can we, as UFS staff, make sure that our students obtain full and accurate information, education and services on aspects of sexuality including sexual rights (human rights)?
  • What is currently happening on campus regarding these services?
  • What are the gaps in our current service delivery when it comes to these matters? Furthermore, are we being sensitive to all sexualities on campus and how are we meeting everyone’s needs?
