About Rutgers Indonesia
Rutgers Indonesia is a not for profit organization that has been working in Indonesia since 1997. Our work focuses on advancing the fulfillment of sexual and reproductive health rights for adolescents and young people, and the elimination of gender-based violence. Together with our partners, we develop intervention models to increase knowledge and strengthen systems that promote, uphold, and fulfill human rights. We develop comprehensive sexual and reproductive health education and services for adolescents and young people. Together with our partners, we innovate to engage boys and men in the elimination of gender and sexuality-based violence.
To ensure sustainable changes, we join efforts with key actors in non-government sectors, faith-based organizations, and professional associations, to strengthen the Government of Indonesia’s efforts to combat violence against women and children. Most importantly, we partner with young people to address issues that matter in their lives.

The media serves as a powerful platform to shape public discourse, attitudes and perceptions towards shaping public knowledge, attitudes and behaviors around SRHR, child marriage and violence against women. However, media representations of these issues can be problematic, as there is often content or narratives that reinforce harmful stereotypes, victim-blaming narratives, and stigmatization.
For this reason, a media analysis is needed that is able to critically examine the depiction and coverage of mass media related to the issues carried by the Power to You(th) program, especially in the major media in the context in question. By understanding the strengths and weaknesses of media coverage, it is expected to identify opportunities for improvement and the development of more targeted strategies to promote responsible and inclusive media practices.
In addition, there is a need to see the reach of social media campaigns carried out by Rutgers Indonesia and RHRN2 local partners, including analyzing content promoting inclusivity, policy advocacy, or providing support related to Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) and Sexual and Gender-Based Violence (GBV), including in the LBGT community and Persons with Disabilities in the general public, so a consulting team is needed to conduct an Analysis of the Reach of Social Media Campaigns of Rutgers Indonesia and Local Partners related to SRHR and GBV Issues.
