"VULNERABILITY AND RESOURCES Exploring intersecting conditions for health equity in sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) among young people in Sweden"
The thesis aims to explore conditions for health equity in sexual and reproductive health (SRHR) among young people by analysing the process by which intersecting social determinants create vulnerability or resources in relation to SRHR among people aged 16-29 in Sweden. This overall aim is addressed in four sub-studies, using intersectionality to improve knowledge about health equity:
- Study I. Explores vulnerable positions within the three SRHR-related outcome areas: unsafe sex, sex against one’s will, and transactional sex among young people.
- Study II. Explores whether control over one’s life may be a resource that affects the ability to suggest safer sex among young people.
- Study III. Explores whether self-perceived knowledge gained from school-based sexuality education can be used as a resource for sexual health among young people.
- Study IV. Explores whether sex-life satisfaction is a resource for health among young people.
