The goal of the Sexual Health Research Center of the University of Tartu is to contribute to positive changes in the sexual and reproductive health of the Estonian population through its activities. We want to be a professional partner for various stakeholders, including government agencies, companies and other organizations, providing advice and information for developing evidence-based interventions.
The Centre's activities are research, development and analysis of indicators in the field, training, development activities and public information work. At the moment, we mainly focus on researching the sexual health determinants of the Estonian population, promoting sexual education and developing and analyzing services related to sexual violence.
