Sexual Health

Sexual health can be described as a state of physical, emotional, mental, and social well-being in relation to sexuality. Within VIP, we believe that sexual health is an important topic since it influences one's mental health as well. Therefore, you can find some important resources and tips on this page.

GGD (Gemeentelijke Gezondheidsdienst) (website only available in Dutch)

The Municipal Health Service (GGD) protects, monitors, and promotes the health of the residents of the Netherlands. It is also called public health care. The GGD can provide you with information and treatment for sexually transmitted diseases. You can also obtain an STD test at most pharmacies. Next to this, the GGD has a 24/7 helpline (0800 0188) that you can call when you have had an experience with sexual assault. The GGD also gives information about different questions regarding sexuality and other topics, for example, sexual abuse and sexual relationships.

SWEI (only in English available) 

The Sexual Wellness Education Initiative (SWEI) has a mission to empower students to engage with topics of sexuality. They want students to explore topics such as consent, boundaries, autonomy, sexual health, sexual and gender identity, safety, and pleasure. They aim to guide students to break taboos and make knowledge accessible for students, by organising different events. Events that they have organized are for example “Men and Women Circles” in which they discussed the challenges and pleasures of men and women's experiences. Ultimately they want to provide students with a bridge between students and experts.
