We believe that human sexuality and reproductive health must be viewed positively, free from judgement and violence.

Based on this belief, we see that there are still many challenges to create healthy Indonesian people and enjoy their rights. These include being comfortable with their bodies, determining their partner and number of children, being free from domestic violence, sexual harassment, coercion or rape, to determining their future. At Rutgers Indonesia, we work with partners and individuals who share the same vision to create Indonesia free from violence. Rutgers WPF was initially the World Population Foundation and has been working since 1997. In 2010, WPF merged with Rutgers Nisso and became Rutgers WPF Indonesia. This merger resulted in both organizations having the same goal: Improving human life quality and eliminating violence. Our big goal is to create a conducive environment (to get support from the government and the wider community) to realize an Indonesian society free from all forms of violence and fulfill the rights to sexual health and reproductive rights that are equally non-discriminatory.


Realizing empowered Indonesian youth towards health generation,recognition and respectfulness for human rights, justice, equality, and inclusiveness.


In general, Rutgers Indonesia manages the organization in the form of programs or projects, either in research, public education, campaigns, supporting the government, and providing services. These various activities have challenges and require extraordinary dedication from the parties involved. We are fully aware that the various goals and activities that we carry out cannot be successful without the general public’s support and related parties, including the government and, of course, groups experiencing violence and marginalization. Adopting the principles of effectiveness and efficiency, Rutgers Indonesia transmits the skills, knowledge, and enthusiasm to individuals and organizations who jointly carry out public education activities, campaigns, research, and support the government to impact the community positively, including the society, children, youth, women, and marginalized groups.
