Empowering out-of-school youth with Comprehensive Sexuality Education
In Sri Lanka, most youth do not have access to accurate information about their sexual and reproductive health. This lack of information may lead to risky sexual behaviour, which in turn puts them at risk of sexually transmitted infections (including HIV) and unintended pregnancy. FPA Sri Lanka, through Service Delivery Points carry out Comprehensive Sexuality Education Programmes to address this need. A CSE programme was conducted for students of the Skills Management Institute in Gampaha from the 23-25th of January 2019. Sessions were carried out by Dr Sirimevan Gamage of the SDI Unit - General Hospital and Mr Jayakodi - Health Education Officer in Gampaha.
