Public health is about addressing the safety and well-being of an entire population. Primary prevention—stopping sexual violence before it begins—is the focus of Hearts of Hope’s Education Department. The programs address sexual violence through diverse approaches that make an impact on individual, interpersonal, institutional and societal levels. Public policy, media literacy, gender equality and anti-oppression are some of the core components. For inquiries & more information contact:
