Among Dutch sexual health organisations funded by the state, a secular approach is dominant. In contrast, among religious leaders and migrants in the African Diaspora, religion often plays an important role in the ways people shape their lives and the choices they make concerning sexuality and sexual well-being.

How do these different ways of understanding health and sexual well-being interact? What contradictions arise in practice? Do the different approaches clash, or do they merge? What power dynamics take place? Can we see a new common ground emerging through these cultural encounters? These are the questions we address in this project.
