Education

Every young person has to make  life-changing decisions about their sexual and reproductive health. However many of them cannot access clear, evidence-based information. IPPF's comprehensive sexuality education programmes enable young people to make informed decisions about their sexuality and health, while building life skills and promoting gender equality.

Comprehensive sexuality education (CSE) is an essential component in promoting SRHR, and in December, members of the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) came together from all over the world to discuss best practises.
