International Technical Guidance on Sexuality Education

The Guidance advocates CSE to help young people overcome the challenges posed by sexual and reproductive health issues, which are particularly difficult during puberty. These challenges include access to contraception, early pregnancy, gender-based violence, sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and HIV and AIDS. They are exacerbated by the internet, where a great deal of material of varying quality relating to sexuality abounds, and by the pressure of cyberbullying, which is on the rise.
