This project focuses on sexuality among older people, examining specifically the association between sexuality and healthy ageing. This large European study has participation from Denmark, Norway, Croatia, England, Portugal, and Belgium.
The main goals are to 1) examine sexual well-being, sexual function, sexual health, and body image among older people, and how these factors relate to healthy ageing, and disease prevention and treatment, and 2) examine help-seeking behavior in connection with sexual health and well-being.
The Norwegian Research Counsil has financed data collection with 9 mill. Norwegian Kroner, for a quantitative as well as qualitative data collection in all participating countries.
