Sexual Health Information Not Accessible In Rural India

A survey by the International Centre for Research on Women (ICRW) and its five partners has found that many Indian youth are influenced by gender-based constraints in their quest for access to reproductive and sexual health services.

The survey found that young women whether married or not had difficulty in accessing relevant information and depended on elders for it. For example in Tamil Nadu 53 per cent of married women symptoms of reproductive tract infections (RTIs). However because of ignorance they did not seek treatment for it.


At the same time men who have sexually transmitted infections (STIs), were thought of having wrong relationships. Even in cases of antenatal and post-natal care husbands did not participate in their wives affairs.

The survey concluded by saying that community-based initiatives were necessary for increasing awareness.
