Sexuality and Politics:


Sexuality Policy Watch (SPW) is a global forum composed of researchers and activists from a wide range of countries and regions of the world. Since its establishment, SPW has undertaken many projects: a global research study on trends in sexuality, policies and politics; political activism; building strategic partnerships with social actors working on sexual rights in key policy arenas; and publishing policy analyses and other materials to address issues of sexuality politics.

SPW also participates in global policy arenas and relevant initiatives directly relating to sexuality, sexual and reproductive rights, gender, LGBT activism and HIV/AIDS. The secretariat is based at the Brazilian Interdisciplinary AIDS Association (ABIA).
