Challenges is the e-newsletter produced by the Durex Network to explore developments in the global sexual health arena. We have created this newsletter because we believe the promotion of responsible sexual health should be high on the agenda at an international level and, by working with key decision-makers, we intend to stimulate debate, discussion and information exchange as well as the development of new programmes. Through this newsletter, we aim to provide a source of valuable information, providing research, analysis and opinion which, we hope you find useful and informative. Please do not hesitate to share it.
