We will be pursuing research in the following three areas: 1) Ensuring satisfying, responsible, and safe sexual lives. Studies will focus on access to contraception, prevention of sexually transmitted infections, and gender relations. 2) What happens when the wish to have children runs up against infertility and difficulties in acceding to parenthood? Studies will focus on situations in which desires for parenthood are thwarted or deferred or where social and medical difficulties are involved in having a child. 3) Populations with specific social or medical needs. Studies will focus on groups that raise specific health and sexual and reproductive rights questions due to specific demographic, economic, social, racial or health situations.
