Love Matters is RNW Media’s flagship sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) programme. Since launching the first platform in India in 2011, Love Matters has flourished to become a collaborative global network with 7 country members across the world.
The aim of the Love Matters Global Network is to scale-up the cumulative impact and resources of the programme by facilitating collaboration and sharing expertise and innovation in online sexuality education. The network members all utilise the innovative Love Matters approach to reach young people with open, honest and pleasure-positive information on love, sex and relationships in places where such information is often censored or taboo.
The network currently consists of seven members; Love Matters is implemented by RNW Media teams in Egypt, Kenya, Nigeria, DRC and China and in India and Mexico through a social franchise model. Network activities include joint communication and events, joint research and fundraising and coordinated global campaigns.
The network also creates opportunities for learning and sharing knowledge, best practices and resources among and between the members. To ensure sustainability, all network members will gradually transition to a social franchise model. RNW Media also aims to grow the reach and scale of Love Matters by recruiting new members to the network.
