Macedonia and Croatia celebrating the

World Sexual Health Day 2013

This year’s slogan for WSHD “To achieve sexual health, picture yourself owning your sexual rights” aims to constitute a reminder on the fundamental importance that sexual rights have in order to achieve sexual health.


On the 4th of September 2013, public events took place on the main square in Skopje, the capital of Macedonia and Zagreb, the capital of Croatia. Following the proposed activity of WAS (World Organisation for Sexual Health), dynamic and educational activities were organized of picturing people with the banner of some sexual right, which they have chosen. It was interactive, informative and educational event, but in the same time playful action. Poster with the the logo and motto of this year celebration on local language, joined with the Declaration of the sexual rights were attracting people’s attention and some of them were more interested to get familiar with the sexual rights, the meaning and achievement of sexual health, and topics related with sexuality in general. Nice photos were made with the people “picturing themselves owning their sexual rights”! Promoting healthy sexuality and attainment of sexual rights, the aim was to encourage people to talk more open about these issues and to raise the awareness for respecting, promoting and living sexual rights. Also the leaflets with the Declaration of Sexual Rights of WAS on Macedonian and Croatian language were distributed.

The national coordinator for the WSHD 2013 celebration in Macedonia was Komaja Society for the Development of the Art of Living and the national coordinator for Croatia was Komaja Society for development of love and consciounsess. Both Societies are only WAS members in their countires since 2007 and recognizing the need for sexual education also for the young generations they have been active in promoting sexual rights on the World Sexual Health Day since its establishment 4 years ago.

In 2010, the World Association for Sexual Health (WAS) called all their organizations to celebrate, on each September 4th, World Sexual Health Day in an effort to promote a greater social awareness on sexual health across the globe. More then 30 countires world wide joined the celebration.
