RFSU's vision is to meet the SRHR (sexual and reproductive health and rights) of all people. Therefore, RFSU follows the Swedish government's development cooperation work within SRHR with great interest. RFSU has, Since 2009, quantitatively mapped the Swedish SRHR funding in the report “Sex is politics - But where is the money?” with the aim of keeping SRHR prioritized and funding flowing according to policy. Now RFSU wants to deepen the analysis of funding for SRHR by conducting a qualitative report looking into the quality of (SRHR) aid financed by Sweden.
