Comprehensive Sexuality Education in

East Africa: What does it entail? Country models, success stories, and challenges

WEBINAR

Tuesday, June 28, 2022

11:30am - 1:00pm (East Africa Time)

 

 

 

There are strong arguments for investing in and implementing comprehensive sexuality education programs (CSE) and for scaling these programs up in East Africa. Equally, sexuality education is still controversial in many places and faces a lot of resistance in the region. CSE covers a broad range of issues relating to the physical, biological, emotional, intellectual/mental, and social aspects of sexuality. This approach recognizes and accepts all people as sexual beings and is concerned with more than just the prevention of HIV and other STIs or pregnancy.

 

A case study report from East and Southern countries in 2017 indicated that only 58% of learners who start primary school in Africa reach the last grade, and survival rates from primary to secondary school are low. School drop-outs and gender disparities in education are affected by HIV and AIDS, early unintended pregnancies , gender-based violence and other SRH issues.

 

Join Knowledge SUCCESS East Africa for a webinar where they’ll share challenges and opportunities for scaling up CSE in East Africa, discuss the role of stakeholders in CSE, and propose strategies that can be replicated to advance CSE in this region.
