UNESCO HIV and Health Education Clearinghouse

CSE panel discussion at the 2018 International AIDS Conference

"Easier said than done". What does it take for CSE to make a difference to young people's sexual and reproductive health? Join UNESCO at its panel discussion on comprehensive sexuality education at the International AIDS Conference in Amsterdam.

The HIV epidemic is not over and young people remain disproportionately at risk. AIDS is the leading cause of death in adolescents aged 10-19 years in sub-Saharan Africa and the second leading cause of death among adolescents globally. Comprehensive sexuality education (CSE), of which HIV is a core component, is a critical intervention in efforts to end AIDS as a public health threat. CSE is most impactful when it is addresses skills and attitudes, focuses on gender and power in relationships and takes a life course approach. At this UNESCO-led session, discuss lessons and practical examples of how CSE is making progress, despite challenges, for young people’s good health and wellbeing.
