Written By International Women's Health CoalitionFriday, 30 November 2012Founded in 1995 by schoolteacher Rosine Gwem in a low-income neighborhood of Douala, Cameroun's second-largest city, AIA is the only Camerounian organization focused on providing accurate and age-appropriate sexuality education to pre-adolescent girls (aged 8 to 12). Throughout Cameroun, teenage girls lack basic information about sexuality and reproduction, rendering them vulnerable to unwanted pregnancies, unsafe abortion, and HIV/AIDS. Through educational sessions and community outreach, AIA strives to reach these girls early with vital information about their bodies and their rights, providing them with the skills to navigate their adolescent years in good health. IWHC has supported AIA since 2002.

Written By International Women's Health CoalitionFriday, 30 November 2012Based in the central Nigerian city of Minna, where Sharia'h Islamic law—introduced at the state level in 2000—threatens women's human rights and undermines all people's access to accurate information on sexuality and reproduction, INCRESE advocates for the sexual health and rights of society's most disenfranchised groups, including youth, sexual minorities, survivors of sexual violence, commercial sex workers, and widowed women living with HIV/AIDS. Through education programs in its outreach center and advocacy throughout the community, INCRESE is promoting an understanding of sexual rights that is both protective (the right to say no to unwanted sex) and affirmative (the right to sexual expression)—and challenging the culture of silence around sexuality in a highly conservative environment. IWHC has supported INCRESE since its creation in 2002.
