General results of the survey concerning sexual and reproductive health are: Research shows that internet, peers and parents are the most represented sources of information about sexuality and reproductive health. Unfortunately, these sources are not necessarily acurate and reliable sources of information. Incomplete information, obtained by using internet or from peers can give a distorted perception of sexual experiences and incomplete understanding of sexual behavior.

General conclusions regarding results of the research of gender based violence shows present, rationally accepted, morally justified, traditionally generated general culture of violence against women, or domestic violence, as well as in partner relations, but also violence in schools, among peers and from teachers/professors. Differentiation, variation and/or (in)equality is taken as the usual way of social functioning.

Result presentation was followed by active participation of guests in the discussion

There was around 40 people present at the event.
