Between 1999-2013 RFSU collaborated with two organisations in India.
RFSU has collaborated with the organisations Mamta Health Institute for Mother and Child (MAMTA) and Talking About Reproductive and Sexual Health Issues (TARSHI). The goal was to develop strategies for the improvement of youth health and development by creating a network for different organisations working with youth and SRHR issues in India.
Moreover, every autumn from 2003-2007 a Sida financed international course was held. RFSU was responsible for the administration of the course together with Young People’s Sexual and Reproductive Health, in India and MAMTA, who worked as a collaboration partner. Each course had close to 25 participants from different countries throughout South Asia.
A report about three of the locations where projects have been implemented: a rural area outside of Varanasi (in the state of Uttar Pradesh in North East India), a rural area in Bawal (in the state of Haryana in North West India), and a slum in the city of Bangalore (in the state of Karnataka in South India). The three areas have geographical, socio-economical, cultural and religious differences, but all of the target groups live in poverty. The report, which is written in English, describes the methods that were used, obstacles that arose and the visible results of the projects.
