[HRC37 Panel] Sexuality Education: Rights & Realities

Published on February 22, 2018
Event date

Most States in all regions of the world deliver some form of sexuality education as part of their education system. However, their implementation is often missing critical aspects related to gender equality, sexuality, human rights, relationship skills, and gender-based violence. During the event, panelists will discuss new tools, guidelines and strategies to bridge these gaps and ensure policy is driven by evidence and human rights standards. Panelists will also discuss successes and challenges related to developing and implementing curricula that effectively empower young people and adults.
