  • The international dance4life meeting – through the eyes of the youth

    21.11.2014 | Nina Pavlovska, Program manager dance4life

    dance4life started in the Netherlands 10 years ago, and today it is an international program present in 20 countries around the world. The truth is that without the help of our international partners, a world without AIDS only remains to be wishful thinking. To realise a dream, and live in a world where young people are able to make safe choices about their sexual and reproductive life and practice their rights, dance4life has a strong army of NGOs to act together with.

  • A new era in the fight against HIV

    14.11.2014 | Chanda Nsofwa , dance4life International Advocacy Group

    The search for effective biomedical HIV prevention options is progressing further and faster than at any time since the epidemic began. This was the most important conclusion at the HIV Research for Prevention 2014 Conference in Cape Town, South Africa, where the world’s leading HIV prevention researchers, funders and policy makers came together for 4 days of exchange, debate and direction-setting in the fight against HIV.

  • All young people in Nepal can connect to gender based violence

    16.07.2014 | Sara Vida Coumans, Advocacy

    “Challenges related to sexual and reproductive health and gender based violence are everywhere: in every house, in every family, even in my family. So young people can easily connect to the issue that we talk about” shared Rekha Trikhatri (23) as we were reflecting on the Hearth Connection Tour she facilitated that day in the Parsa district in Nepal. Together with my colleagues Janneke Rijnart and Nina Pavlovska I visited the dance4life program in Nepal, which is implemented by our partner Restless Development Nepal.

  • Celebrating 20 years ICPD!

    07.04.2014 | Sara Vida Coumans, Advocacy

    This year, 2014, we are celebrating the 20th anniversary of the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) Programme of Action (PoA)! Twenty years ago 179 UN Member States committed to a Programme of Action was historical in the sense that development frameworks till that point had not been rights based. For the first time in history, the ICPD PoA shifted the development discourse into a people centered approach based on human rights.

  • The training that cannot be named

    24.03.2014 | Koen Böhm, Training

    “You do know that we are not allowed to advocate here?” I’m sitting in a café in Addis Ababa after quite a surreal week. I’m about to leave tonight and a lot of thoughts are going through my mind. I knew about the political situation in Ethiopia, but to experience it, if only for a week, and only as a bystander, is still something different.

  • Kicking off in Ghana

    22.11.2013 | Koen Bohm, Project visit

    Imagine that one day you walk into a room with 23 others. You all are about to be trained in the dance4life method called the Heart Connection Tour. You need to learn this quickly as in 4 days you will be performing before 200 kids. But that’s not all; on the second day of the training you hear that you will do the dance4life drill on World Aids Day in front of at least 1000 people. That is exactly what is happening here in Tamale, Ghana.

  • dance4life in Indonesia - a success story worth sharing

    07.11.2013 | Nina Pavlovska, Country visit

    Indonesia is the biggest Muslim country in the world. Also, the HIV epidemic in Indonesia is among the fastest growing in Asia. By September 2012, it was estimated that there were 333,200 people living with HIV (PLHIV) in Indonesia. The cumulative number of reported AIDS cases has risen sharply from 2,682 cases in 2004 to 39,434 by September 2012. From this number, 4 percent of the total AIDS cases belongs to 15-19 years old group, and the highest percentage (42,3%) is found in 20-29 years old group. Moreover, despite the religious and traditional context, according to the survey of the Family Planning Department of the Indonesian government 63% of the young people have premarital sex. All of the above point out the urgent need of young people to have access to information and services regarding their sexual and reproductive health. And that is where the dance4life programme comes in.
