Prepared for the first meeting of UNESCO's Global Advisory Group meeting, 13-14 December 2007.
In 2007, UNESCO commissioned this desk-based review of the global state of sex and HIV education in the formal education sector in order to inform its possible future work in this area. The review is based on twenty-two key informant interviews with experts from Africa, Europe and North and South America, together with searches of published and grey literature obtained from the internet, databases and personal recommendation, as well as manual searching of key journals. Consistent with the Terms of Reference (Annex 1), the focus of the review is upon sex, relationships and HIV education programmes within the context of poorer countries, particularly those in sub-Saharan Africa.
