Why children need Comprehensive Sexuality Education
The world is changing...fast!Young people today are facing a very different set of challenges to those experienced by previous generations.
Education, must go beyond the traditional academic focus. It should support young people to develop the knowledge, skills, ethical values and attitudes they need to make conscious, healthy and respectful choices about relationships, sex and reproduction.
CSE must be an essential part of a good education that helps prepare young people to make well-informed decisions in a world where HIV and AIDS, sexually transmitted infections (STIs), unintended pregnancies, and gender-based violence still pose serious risks to their well-being.
