Love Matters offers clear, non-judgmental information about issues such as safe sex, contraceptives and reproductive rights and homosexuality. It handles these issues in a sensitive way and uses journalistic content to engage 18 to 30-year-olds in a positive manner.

With Love Matters, RNW draws on Dutch expertise in sexual health education. RNW works closely with local experts on sexual health to tailor content for different regions. Surveys show that adolescent are ill informed on this subject and want more information.

Speaking on the launch of Lovematters.info, coordinator Michele Ernsting said, “With Love Matters we hope to make it possible to open up a discussion on a subject which is so important to every one of us. We hope to give people the information they need to make the best possible decisions about their sexual health”.
