About the project

The overall aim is to explore and compare how social determinants affect sexual and reproductive health and rights, among young people aged 16-29 in Sweden.

The PhD-project is theoretically based on social perspectives on public health (social determinants and social stratification) and gender theory / intersectionality. Health and illness are understood as an effect of social conditions. Through intersectionality, the project will critically examine how a society's power structures are intertwined and how individuals in different social groups can have complex and multiple layers of vulnerability or privileges in their social determinants for SRHR.

The empirical material consists of a randomized and stratified survey on SRHR (UngKAB15) which was conducted in the total population aged 16-29 in Sweden in 2015.
