A form of discrimination in the workplace which violates the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Sexual harassment takes two forms: quid pro quo, where the employee must submit to sexual advances in exchange for job benefits or be penalized for refusing; or a hostile environment, where the atmosphere of the workplace is offensive and affects the employee's well-being. Offensive sexual conduct may include unwelcome advances, comments, touching, questions about marital status and sex practices, etc. Both men and women may be aggressors or victims. (Slee and Slee, Health Care Terms, 2d ed, p.404). While civil rights legislation deals with sexual harassment in the workplace, the behavior is not restricted to this; it may take place outside the work environment: in schools and colleges, athletics, and other social milieus and activities.

The contribution of interagency collaboration to the promotion of young people's sexual health. (1/343)

This paper employs a case study approach in order to examine the contribution of interagency working to the delivery of education and services in the difficult field of young people's sexual health. It reports on a collaborative UK initiative involving teachers, community health practitioners, health promotion staff, and youth and community workers. The provision included school-based sex education, drop-in advice and information facilities, 'detached' street work, and a young person's clinic. A qualitative study was completed involving detailed interviews with 25 staff from the different agencies involved. The findings suggest that interagency collaboration can enhance the work of each organization, and can achieve a comprehensive response to young people's sexual health needs by making positive use of the distinctive roles, skills, knowledge and approaches of the different agencies. The potential that such a collaboration will have a significant impact on young people's sexual health is discussed.  (+info)

Relaying the message of safer sex: condom races for community-based skills training. (2/343)

This paper describes a community-based HIV prevention program designed to improve confidence in condom use skills by giving community members 'hands-on' experience in using condoms correctly. A condom race activity which had been effective in increasing condom skills confidence among university students in the US was modified and implemented with the general population in rural Northeast Thailand. In addition to providing training in condom use skills, the condom race was part of an integrated condom promotion and distribution campaign which responded to needs identified by the community, built upon the credibility and influence of local leaders and peers, and extended access to condoms into rural communities. Local leaders who had participated in a training-of-trainers program organized condom races in their communities, serving as positive role models for community acceptance of condom use. The condom race stimulated community discussion about condoms and increased participants' feelings of self-efficacy in correct condom use. Participation in the condom race activity was particularly empowering to women, who reported increased confidence in their ability to use condoms and to suggest using condoms with their partners after the race.  (+info)

Behavioural intervention trials for HIV/STD prevention in schools: are they feasible? (3/343)

OBJECTIVE: To assess the feasibility of conducting a large randomised controlled trial (RCT) of peer led intervention in schools to reduce the risk of HIV/STD and promote sexual health. METHODS: Four secondary schools in Greater London were randomly assigned to receive peer led intervention (two experimental schools) or to act as control schools. In the experimental schools, trained volunteers aged 16-17 years (year 12) delivered the peer led intervention to 13-14 year old pupils (year 9). In the control schools, year 9 pupils received the usual teacher led sex education. Questionnaire data collected from year 9 pupils at baseline included views on the quality of sex education/intervention received, and knowledge and attitudes about HIV/AIDS and other sexual matters. Focus groups were also conducted with peer educators and year 9 pupils. Data on the process of delivering sex education/intervention and on attitudes to the RCT were collected for each of the schools. Analysis focused on the acceptability of a randomised trial to schools, parents, and pupils. RESULTS: Nearly 500 parents were informed about the research and invited to examine the study questionnaire; only nine raised questions and only one pupil was withdrawn from the study. Questionnaire completion rates were around 90% in all schools. At baseline, the majority of year 9 pupils wanted more information about a wide range of sexual matters. Focus group work indicated considerable enthusiasm for peer led education, among peer educators and year 9 pupils. Class discipline was the most frequently noted problem with the delivery of the peer led intervention. CONCLUSION: Evaluation of a peer led behavioural intervention through an RCT can be acceptable to schools, pupils, and parents and is feasible in practice. In general, pupils who received the peer led intervention responded more positively than those in control schools. A large RCT of the long term (5-7 year) effects of this novel intervention on sexual health outcomes is now under way.  (+info)

Sexual health risk assessment and counseling in primary care: how involved are general practitioners and obstetrician-gynecologists? (4/343)

OBJECTIVES: This study examined physicians' evaluation of sexual health risks during a general medical examination and sexually transmitted disease (STD) counseling during consultations for adolescent contraception and treatment of an STD. METHODS: An anonymous mail survey was conducted in 1995 with a stratified random sample of 1086 general practitioners and all 241 obstetrician-gynecologists practicing in Quebec, Canada. RESULTS: Fewer than half of the respondents reported routinely inquiring about condom use and number of sexual partners during a general medical examination. Female general practitioners engaged in more sexual health risk assessment and counseling than male general practitioners. CONCLUSIONS: This study suggests a low level of involvement in STD prevention by generalists and obstetrician-gynecologists.  (+info)

A pragmatic intervention to promote condom use by female sex workers in Thailand. (5/343)

An overview is presented of a multifaceted intervention to promote consistent condom use by female commercial sex workers in Thailand, in the context of the government's 100% condom use policy for preventing spread of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. The project is described with reference to a succession of stages including pre-programme needs assessment, intervention design, implementation and evaluation. The key elements of the intervention were video scenarios and discussions coordinated by health personnel, and video-depicted open-ended narratives aimed at helping sex workers to explore their personal and work-related dilemmas and concerns. A core objective was to enhance sex workers' self-esteem and perceived future with a view to strengthening their motivation to take preventive action against HIV infection. The intervention was evaluated using a combination of qualitative (process evaluation) and quantitative (outcome) methods. The outcome evaluation was undertaken using a pretest, post-test intervention and control group quasi-experimental design. There were significant increases in consistent condom use among the intervention groups but not among the controls. Pragmatic stability is advocated for the Thai sex industry and recommendations are offered for good quality HIV prevention activities.  (+info)

Abstinence promotion and the provision of information about contraception in public school district sexuality education policies. (6/343)

CONTEXT: For more than two decades, abstinence from sexual intercourse has been promoted by some advocates as the central, if not sole, component of public school sexuality education policies in the United States. Little is known, however, about the extent to which policies actually focus on abstinence and about the relationship, at the local district level, between policies on teaching abstinence and policies on providing information about contraception. METHODS: A nationally representative sample of 825 public school district superintendents or their representatives completed a mailed questionnaire on sexuality education policies. Descriptive and multivariate analyses were conducted to identify districts that had sexuality education policies, their policy regarding abstinence education and the factors that influenced it. RESULTS: Among the 69% of public school districts that have a district-wide policy to teach sexuality education, 14% have a comprehensive policy that treats abstinence as one option for adolescents in a broader sexuality education program; 51% teach abstinence as the preferred option for adolescents, but also permit discussion about contraception as an effective means of protecting against unintended pregnancy and disease (an abstinence-plus policy); and 35% (or 23% of all U.S. school districts) teach abstinence as the only option outside of marriage, with discussion of contraception either prohibited entirely or permitted only to emphasize its shortcomings (an abstinence-only policy). Districts in the South were almost five times as likely as those in the Northeast to have an abstinence-only policy. Among districts whose current policy replaced an earlier one, twice as many adopted a more abstinence-focused policy as moved in the opposite direction. Overall, though, there was no net increase among such districts in the number with an abstinence-only policy; instead, the largest change was toward abstinence-plus policies. CONCLUSIONS: While a growing number of U.S. public school districts have made abstinence education a part of their curriculum, two-thirds of districts allow at least some positive discussion of contraception to occur. Nevertheless, one school district in three forbids dissemination of any positive information about contraception, regardless of whether their students are sexually active or at risk of pregnancy or disease.  (+info)

Condom promotion in women attending inner city general practices for cervical smears: a randomized controlled trial. (7/343)

BACKGROUND: Although condom promotion schemes have been widely piloted in UK general practices, there have been no rigorous evaluations of their effectiveness. OBJECTIVES: To see if a practice-based sexual health education intervention increases the number of women having smears who are given condoms and advice on avoiding STDs. To see if this low cost intervention affects subsequent condom use. METHOD: We conducted a cluster randomized trial of condom promotion in 1382 women aged <35 years attending 28 South London general practices for cervical smear tests. RESULTS: More women in intervention than control practices reported receiving advice on avoiding sexually transmitted infections (27% versus 10%) and being given condoms (28% versus 1%, P < 0.05). However, there was no difference in subsequent condom use, even in the 22% of women reporting >/=2 sexual partners in the previous year. CONCLUSIONS: To provide evidence of effectiveness, future interventions may need to be more intensive or focus on higher risk groups.  (+info)

Older, but not wiser: how men get information about AIDS and sexually transmitted diseases after high school. (8/343)

CONTEXT: As they reach adulthood, young men are less likely to use condoms and are at increased risk for exposure to AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). Little is known about which prevention efforts reach men in their 20s. METHODS: Longitudinal data from the 1988, 1990-1991 and 1995 waves of the National Survey of Adolescent Males are used to identify sources of information about AIDS and STDs among 1,290 young men aged 22-26. Information receipt from four main sources, the topics covered by each source and the personal characteristics associated with getting more information are all explored. RESULTS: Twenty-two percent of men surveyed discussed disease prevention topics with a health provider in the last year, 48% attended a lecture or read a brochure, 51% spoke to a partner, friend or family member, and 96% heard about AIDS or STDs from the media (e.g., television advertisements, radio or magazine). Excluding media sources, 30% of young men reported getting no STD or AIDS prevention messages in the last year. Being black or Hispanic, having had a physical exam or an AIDS test in the last year, and having discussions about AIDS or STDs with parents or a health care provider in the past were associated with receiving more information. CONCLUSIONS: Although young men who are at higher risk for STD or HIV infection are more likely than other young men to get information about disease prevention, young adult men are much less likely than adolescents to receive AIDS or STD prevention education. More prevention efforts need to be aimed at young adults.  (+info)

This rigorous evaluation of a sex education programme delivered by teachers did not find any benefit on rates for conception or termination compared with normal sex education. A balanced randomisation ensured optimal matching of control and intervention arms, and linkage to NHS data on conceptions and terminations ensured no reporting bias and only minimal attrition from the original eligible sample. This is in contrast to the 60% attrition in the sample when followed up by postal questionnaire to age 20. In the current study, there may have been a small level of attrition across both arms because of women attending private health care (less than 2% of terminations), moving from Scotland during the study period (1% average annual migration out of Scotland), or having their terminations in England or Wales (2.7% of all the terminations performed on Scottish residents).24 25 26 On balance, the comparison between this study and national rates suggests that the linkage was broadly effective.

A study (telephone survey), assessing community support for school family life education programs, had two purposes: (1) to determine acceptability of school sex education programs to residents of northwest Arkansas; and (2) to identify factors related to an individuals acceptance or nonacceptance of such programs. Telephone interviews with 119 participants consisted of a maximum of 16 questions that gathered information concerning general background, educational attainment, religious involvement, experiences in discussing sex with ones own children, and views concerning sex education programs. Two major results indicated that: (1) The majority of people were in favor of public school programs of sex education (74.6 percent); and (2) A majority indicated that parents should be responsible for the sex education of their children (94.1 percent). The study identified age, educational background, talking about contraceptives, religious affiliation, and frequency of church attendance
University of Washington, Seattle Available at http://www.planetwire.org/files.fcgi/7689_Ab_Only_Ed_Kohler_.pdf. Yet another study has confirmed that abstinence-only programs have a minimal effect on risky sexual behaviors, while comprehensive sex education programs reduce the risk for teen pregnancy without increasing the likelihood that teens will engage in sexual activity.. In short, it is not harmful to teach teens about birth control in addition to abstinence, lead researcher Pamela Kohler, a program manager at the University of Washington, said in a news release about the study. The study appeared in the April issue of the Journal of Adolescent Health - only a few weeks after President Bush submitted a fiscal 2009 budget that includes $204 million in funding for programs that teach only abstinence until marriage. The study is purportedly the first to compare abstinence-only and comprehensive sex education programs at a general population level - rather than with specific subgroups, such ...
Sex education has always been a controversial aspect of education and has endured numerous changes due to the dispute surrounding it. Since the beginning of the 20th century, debates over sex education have been prominent in schools throughout the country. Already by 1919 there was a call for education about the moral, the normal, the healthful, the helpful, and the esthetic aspects and a move away from teaching solely about disease prevention. In 1964, as sex was becoming more visible to youth via a more overt media targeted at teens in particular, the private organization SIECUS (Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States) was created to challenge inadequate sex education. With the creation of SIECUS, opponents no longer remained quiet because there was now a clear target to attack. Right Wing groups lashed out at comprehensive sex education programs. Thus, the sex education battle was born and has remained vigorous to this day.. There have been several policy changes ...

AU - Sherwood-Laughlin, Catherine. AU - Baldwin, Kathleen. PY - 2012/7/1. Y1 - 2012/7/1. N2 - Many scholars and practitioners have advocated for a more ecological approach to sexual health promotion for adolescents, such as one that includes involvement from schools, parents, and community organizations. Although extensive research has been conducted with schools and parents, little is known about the roles community-based organizations (CBOs) may play in the education and promotion of sexual health to young people. This study aimed to (a) identify the types of sexual health and sexuality-related questions asked by youth and programming/services, resources, and referrals currently being provided by CBOs; (b) explore the approaches used by CBOs when developing and implementing sexual health promotion programs; and ...
The United States ranks first among developed nations in rates of both teenage pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases. In an effort to reduce these rates, the U.S. government has funded abstinence-only sex education programs for more than a decade. However, a public controversy remains over whether this investment has been successful and whether these programs should be continued. Using the most recent national data (2005) from all U.S. states with information on sex education laws or policies (N = 48), we show that increasing emphasis on abstinence education is positively correlated with teenage pregnancy and birth rates. This trend remains significant after accounting for socioeconomic status, teen educational attainment, ethnic composition of the teen population, and availability of Medicaid waivers for family planning services in each state. These data show clearly that abstinence-only education as a state policy is ineffective in preventing teenage pregnancy and may actually be ...

Sex education, also called Sexuality Education or informally Sex Ed is education about human sexual anatomy, sexual reproduction, sexual intercourse, human sexual behavior, and other aspects of sexuality, such as body image, sexual orientation, dating, and relationships. Common avenues for sex education are parents, caregivers, friends, school programs, religious groups, popular media, and public health campaigns.. Sexual education is not always taught the same in every country. For example, in France sex education has been part of school curricula since 1973. Schools are expected to provide 30 to 40 hours of sex education, and pass out condoms to students in grades eight and nine. In January, 2000, the French government launched an information campaign on contraception with TV and radio spots and the distribution of five million leaflets on contraception to high school students.[60]. In Germany, sex education has been part of school curricula since 1970. Since 1992 sex education is by law a ...

While welcoming the significant progress made in improving womens access to reproductive health care and services, the Committee expresses its concern that the maternal mortality rate remains high, including deaths resulting from unsafe abortions, and which may be an indication that the existing sex education programmes are not sufficient and may not give enough attention to all aspects of prevention, including prevention of early pregnancy and the control of sexually transmitted diseases and HIV/AIDS. While noting the work of civil society organizations in the provision of reproductive health services, the Committee is concerned about whether regulations are in place to monitor the quality of services and the observance of ethical standards. The Committee is further concerned that the intended introduction of user fees for the provision of health services may restrict the access of women, particularly of the most vulnerable groups, to those services. The Committee calls upon the State party to ...
The distribution of condoms as part of the sex education programme is controversial.. Zuma said yesterday that three-quarters of girls who get pregnant stop school and only a third of them ever return to complete their education.. It is girls that bear the burden. I know it makes us as parents uncomfortable to talk about sex, but if you are too shy to communicate about this, your child will get pregnant, Zuma said.. He said arguments about cultural concerns are unfounded, because in the past, it was custom in Zulu households for the oldest daughters to educate the younger ones about sex and relationships.. Boys had to ask permission to visit younger girls, who were expected to report back on their relationships while learning how to handle boys.. If a boy tried to go too far, his visits would be ended, Zuma said.. He said yesterday it was good that nurses at schools would take over this role, because teenagers often find the atmosphere at clinics hostile.. The departments of Health and Basic ...

The 84th Texas Legislative Session proved to be challenging for the Pro-Life movement. As we previously reported in detail, while there were a few legislative victories, most Pro-Life advocates were disappointed by the missed opportunities and political games that shaped the session. Nevertheless, because of the tireless efforts and relentless commitment of a handful of elected officials, multiple votes on Pro-Life policies were brought to the House and Senate floors.. The one priority Pro-Life bill that passed this session was House Bill 3994, which substantially reforms the judicial bypass process by which a pregnant teen may petition a judge for permission to undergo an abortion without parental knowledge or consent. In both chambers, anti-Life legislators attempted to weaken this legislation by floor amendments.. Multiple Pro-Life votes were also taken this session on the states budget bill, including two amendments that keep the abortion industry out of sex education programs and one that ...

Im asking myself this question in relation to the sex education that is offered to adolescents in Malawi as part of their education. It is sanitised because they are only taught about abstinence (while the other preventative methods of being faithful to ones partner and condomising are completely ignored).. According to the UNAIDS AIDS Pandemic Global Report of 2013, there were an estimated 35.3 million people living with HIV in 2012 and about 25 million of this population was in Sub Saharan Africa. Malawi has a total population of 15 million with 1 million of this population infected by HIV. Out of this population, 170,000 are children between the ages of 5 and 19 years old. Usually, 13 to 15 year old youths are in junior secondary school with sex education being promoted through a subject called Life Skills HIV-Based Education (LSBE).

Senator and Presidential candidate Barack Obama has gained support from some Evangelical Christians. I recall some students and faculty at the Wesleyan Evangelical seminary that I attended supported Obama. Jim Wallis of Sojourners, when on the lecture circuit, constantly compares Obama with famed British Parliamentarian William Wilberforce. This week, Obama spoke to a Planned Parenthood gathering where he reinforced his support for sexual education for kindergarteners. To be fair, Obama said the education should be age appropriate and that he does not support teaching explicit sex education to children in kindergarten. However, lets keep in mind the audience to whom Obama was speaking - Planned Parenthood. When I attended public school in the state of Hawaii, I was introduced to Planned Parenthood in my mandatory health class in 7th grade. Planned Parenthood tried to teach us how to use condoms with cucumbers and instructed the class about spermicidal jelly, dental dams, and other birth ...

We saw significant and sustained positive changes in terms of attitudes about sexual health and sexual health knowledge, said Lynn Fiellin, M.D., associate professor of medicine at Yale School of Medicine and in the Child Study Center.. Adolescents are significantly affected by HIV and other STIs, yet many lack access to sexual health education that could minimize their risks, said the researchers, who note that videogames offer an accessible, portable tool for promoting health and reducing risky behavior among teenagers, particularly minority youth who are disproportionately impacted.. Led by Fiellin, the research team recruited more than 300 students, ages 11 to 14, from afterschool and summer programs in the New Haven area for the study. For six weeks, the youth either played the intervention game PlayForward: Elm City Stories, or one of several unrelated videogames on iPad tablets for up to 75 minutes twice per week. Designed with teen and expert input, PlayForward is a serious role-playing ...
Studies of relationships, sexual behaviour, condom use, termination rates and the spread of sexually transmitted diseases suggest that many young people require greater preparation if they are to minimise distress and health threats in their romantic and sexual relationships. Yet most safer sex promotion programmes have been found to be ineffective. Social cognitive theories have been found to reliably distinguish between those who do and do not report subsequent condom use.

The National Campaign found that 90 percent of the public supports providing more education to teenagers. This education should stress taking sex and pregnancy seriously. Teens need to learn about personal responsibility and about contraception. The National Campaign points out that the teen years are a critical place to begin sex education. The best approach, the National Campaign believes, is to encourage teens to delay sexual activity. But if that is not an option, teens should practice family planning, meaning birth control. Is comprehensive sex ed taught at your teens school or do they emphasize abstinence only?. ...
Dr. Miriam Grossman is the author of Youre teaching My Child What?. The subtitle of the book is; A Physician Exposes the Lies of Sex Education and How They Harm Your Child. I have just started reading the book. In the introduction Dr. Miriam tells the story of meeting a 20-year old student at a campus presentation she gave on sexual health. The young woman admitted to having a serious disease as a result of sexual intercourse. Dr. Miriam tells us that this disease can lead to cervical cancer (HPV.16: 40% chance of cancer). The doctor had been speaking about the dangers of early intercourse, but it is clear that, at the age of 20, this young woman had had considerably more than one sexual partner. She told the doctor that thinking it all over, the serious medical risk was worth the pleasure she had had with those partners. It is certainly shocking to read this, but we should not be surprised. Recently there was a documentary programme on UK TV about young brits holidaying in Greece and how ...

Louisville, KY 40292. MedicalResearch.com: What is the background for this study?. Response: In 2010, our team at the University of Louisville with colleagues from Spalding University, were awarded a Tier 2 grant from the Office of Adolescent Health to study innovative teen pregnancy prevention interventions. We assembled a fantastic team of staff, students, community members and twenty three community based organizations to work together collaboratively to recruit and retain close to 1450 youth from the most distressed areas of our metropolitan area in order to conduct a randomized controlled trial.. We tested the efficacy of two interventions compared to a control condition. Our reason for this was to see how a new type of teen pregnancy intervention would perform compared to a more typical comprehensive sex education program, Reducing the Risk, which was already on the OAH list of evidence based interventions as well as to a control condition, which focused on community building but had no ...
Teens who take virginity pledges are just as likely to have sex as those who do not, and they are less likely to use condoms or other forms of contraception when they become sexually active, according to an analysis in the January 2009 issue of the peer-reviewed journal Pediatrics. Because virginity pledge programs do not reduce the number of young people becoming sexually active, the number of pledgers they enlist should not be used to measure the effectiveness of abstinence-only sex education programs, the study concludes.
Reproductive health is a part of a comprehensive definition of complete physical, mental and social well-being. Sex education is an important aspect of public health. Ignorance, due to the lack of sex education leads to risky sexual behaviors. Methods: Our cross-sectional study was aimed at investigating a representative group of Polish womens knowledge about the physiology of the menstrual cycle, contraceptive methods, infertility and cervical cancer prevention. The data were collected by face-to-face interviews and an anonymous electronic questionnaire. The study group involved 20,002 respondents. Most of the women were of reproductive age (mean 27.7), parous (60.8%), of higher education (71%) and living in large cities (| 500 k citizens, 36.8%). 62.2% of the women gave correct answers to at least 5 of 7 questions concerning the physiology of the menstrual cycle. Three factors had a significant influence on the number of correct answers: higher education (p = 0.0001), more frequent gynecological

The state of sex education for students with developmental disabilities is a story idea that's been on my plate for ages, and I now may have a good hook: Researchers in Philadelphia have tracked rates of treatment of sexually transmitted infections among more than 50,000 Medicaid*-eligible 12- to 17-year-olds, including about 8,000 receiving special education services, in the Philadelphia school district. In Philadelphia, unlike in many districts, students who are gifted are also provided with an individualized education program, and thus were included in this count. The study found: For males, being classified as [learning disabled] was associated with a...

May 14, 2008-Led by Chairman Rep. Henry Waxman (D-CA), on April 23 the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform held the first oversight hearing on the effectiveness of federally funded abstinence-only-until-marriage programs.. Three panels of witnesses testified on the ineffectiveness of the programs, including leading medical and sexual health experts. Representatives from other organizations also submitted written testimony to the committee, including amfAR CEO Kevin Frost.. Abstinence-only programs are a cornerstone of the federal governments teen pregnancy prevention and HIV prevention strategies. Since 1982, more than $1.5 billion in federal funds has been spent on these programs, which prohibit discussions of contraceptives, including condoms, except in the context of failure rates.. But mounting scientific evidence over the course of the past several years has shown that abstinence-only programs have no positive effect on the sexual behavior of youth. Instead, research reveals ...

Ishrat Naher Erina is a pharmacist and health science practitioner from Bangladesh. She has started her early career in the extensive research on sex education, reproductive organs, infertility management, and mental health at a foreign research firm. Currently, she has been running a non-profit pilot project, Prescription Bangladesh, to promote sex education in order to provide young minds with the facts of reproductive health and associated topics, including relationships, and at the same time to encourage a responsible and sensible attitude to these issues. She believes that sex education is an integral part of the lifelong learning process, and should be begun in early childhood and continue into adult life in order to encourage personal and social development and foster self-esteem, self-awareness, a sense of moral responsibility, and the confidence and ability to resist abuse, social taboos and unwanted experience with a view to ensure a good and secured mental health condition.

In 1975, the first modern definition of sexual health appeared in an official document of the World Health Organization (WHO), which also made some recommendations for its protection (2). Since then, several additional definitions have been provided by the WHO and other sources (3), and there is now general agreement that the promotion of sexual health should be considered a priority in every country. This insight has been growing for many reasons, but one of the most important is the current AIDS pandemic which threatens the economic and political stability in several regions of the world. Since, so far, there is neither a vaccine nor a cure for AIDS, global sexual health education is the only promising option left. On the present occasion, I do not want to go into the details of sexual health definitions, WHO recommendations or suggested AIDS prevention measures. Instead of talking about problems, I would like to call your attention to possible solutions, i.e. to the enormous potential of the ...
The California Personal Responsibility and Education Program (PREP) provides sexual health education to adolescents via effective, evidence-based program models.

Services are offered in a range of settings, from schools and juvenile justice facilities, to homeless shelters and group homes. PREPs goal is to promote and improve the sexual and reproductive health of high-need youth populations. About Us ...
Nearly all of the abstinence-only programs reviewed in the literature share many of these characteristics. In particular, abstinence-only programs focus attention on a small number of behavioral goals--that is, reducing teenage sexual activity, include basic information on the risks of sexual activity, and target young, pre-teen students. However, only a few were sufficiently long and intense, lasting at least three months and requiring more than one hour of time per week. However, several abstinence-only programs that meet most of the criteria, especially those that are sufficiently long and intensive, have currently not been fully evaluated. (Best Friends meets more of the criteria for success than any other abstinence-only program). At this point in time, most evaluations of abstinence-only programs have themselves been short in duration and they have been of programs that were of relatively short duration and intensity. Should we care about whether abstinence programs work? Yes, absolutely. ...
The CDC reports that over 76,000 youth are living with HIV and 60 percent dont even realize it.. Medical experts believe the reason why HIV rates are as high as they are among Latino/a youth have to do with a variety of reasons unique to Latinos: cultural stigma, traditional attitudes of machismo, which stresses virility for Hispanics/Latino men, and marianismo, which demands purity from Latina women; immigration status, fear of discrimination - and perhaps the biggest reason, lack of education.. Though some school districts across the country resist teaching medically accurate sexual education and most prefer to advocate for an abstinence-only approach, the numbers show that Latino youth continue to engage in sex - on their own terms.. However, they do want to know how to protect themselves. The CDC reports that 50 percent of Millennials want more information about HIV. One method to educate youth about HIV/AIDS is via the annual bilingual Lets Stop HIV Together/Actúa contra el SIDA ...

Parenting. As parents we provide sex education for our children. Each mother and father teaches his children about sex through attitudes, behavior and verbal comments. Sex education is a lifelong process. Children get their first feelings about sex from their parents who are the most important people in the childs life.. What are your feelings about sexuality? Is sex a topic for scorn and dirty jokes? Is sex a topic to be avoided altogether? Is sex so secret or private or frightening that you cant talk about it? Some adults feel this way. Then they convey to their children the feeling that sex is bad and these children are unaware that human sexuality is a normal part of human personality and can provide some of lifes most enriching experiences. Powerful sexual feelings cannot be ignored. Even if parents refuse to relate information about sex, children listen to the stories of friends or read in wonder the comments about movies or news items or covers of books and magazines..

By Birdie McNeill. Wouldnt it be great if sex education helped students feel comfortable and informed when they (eventually) pursued healthy, sexual relationships? Unfortunately, sex education in the US often does the opposite, ignoring the most essential safety information and promoting a sense of shame around body, gender, and sexuality using scare tactics.. On the last day, the teacher dimmed the lights and had us write out a letter explaining to our friends and family that we had just been given the news that we had AIDS, and explained how we had contracted it. After an hour of people crying in class and thinking about death, she tried to encourage us to keep that letter with us.. The above story represents one of many ways students are taught to feel fear and shame in response to their own sexual impulses, a form of body oppression that is rarely included in body politics. Here are five ways that todays sex ed programs impinge students emerging sexual freedom.. 1. It Places a Premium ...

Female reproductive system is essential for sustaining human race. Moreover, many women feel motherhood makes her complete. Being better informed on female reproductive health will help in understanding the care that is needed for a woman.
Thankfully, there are better options for women (Catholic or not) that do not include pumping hormones into our bodies, killing our offspring or inserting torturous-looking devices into our nether regions. These options are the various natural planning methods (NFP): Billings, Creighton, Sympto Thermal Method (STM) and Marquette to name a few. Hormonal contraception manipulates the uterine environment to avoid pregnancy. This fact alone proves that there is science behind what makesa woman fertile or not. The various NFP methods involve tracking certain fertility measures (mucus consistency, cervix location, waking body temperature for example). Look at that. This is not the Rhythm Method! No moon or hocus pocus mentioned. Scientific evidence exists to help a woman not only know her body better, but to avoid pregnancy or conceive successfully. The best part about this option, is that once you have the instruction, the costs are minimal. Depending on which method works best for you, you are ...

How did you first learn about sex? Who did you ask those intimate and embarrassing questions about your body and the new feelings you were experiencing? Where did you go to get the truth about sex, reproduction, relationships? Who explained how to use contraception or what sexually transmitted infections are - without judgment? Or are you still trying to find the facts you need?. If you are fortunate, your parents may have initiated early and open conversations with you about healthy relationships, sexuality, and reproduction. Surveys have shown that 36 percent of teen girls get information about sex and reproduction from friends and family. But even some of the most progressive parents may find it hard to talk about sexual relationships and intimacies outside of their own beliefs and experiences. And older teens are really not that interested in discussing sex with their parents, no matter how good a relationship they may have.. My public school sexual education continued later on in sixth ...
