RFSU contributes to the fulfilment of everyone’s right to have control over, and decide freely and responsibly on matters related to one’s sexuality, free from coercion, discrimination and violence.

Sexual rights include, among others, the right to security, the right to privacy, the right to health and the right to life.

RFSU contributes to preventing early and forced marriages, sexual and gender-based violence, rape and the social control of young people, women and LGBTQ people and their life choices. RFSU supports organisations that work for LGBTQ rights in countries and societies where resistance is strong.

RFSU provides information and expertise to Swedish decision makers on violations of sexual rights, and how to strengthen international commitments to respect and fulfil sexual rights globally.
