The need for a better understanding of sexuality and sexual health in the Arab societies triggered members of the Youth Sexual and Reproductive Health Working Group (YSRH-WG) at the Faculty of Health Sciences (FHS) at the American University of Beirut (AUB), in collaboration with colleagues from the Arab region, to establish a network of Arab Scholars on Sexuality and Sexual health (NASSS).

NASSS, founded in February 2014, is a regional network of scholars from different countries in the Arab Region working on sexuality and sexual health. Members come from various disciplines, research fields, and professional interests related to sexuality and sexual health...



Within the context of human rights and Arab cultural diversity, NASSS aims to:

- Initiate, encourage and strengthen research on sexuality and sexual health that contributes to the understanding of sexuality and sexual health globally and in the Region.

- Integrate sexuality and sexual health (SSH) discourse and training within academic, and community settings.

- Establish a database of academic and professional  resources on sexuality and sexual health in Arabic and other languages.
