Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) - MMS Workshop Follow-up

Let’s get deeper into the implementation of CSE with Dr.Venkatraman Chandra-Mouli (WHO)

Medicus Mundi Switzerland

Sexual and reproductive ill-health is a major contribution to the burden of disease among young people. The objective of CSE is to ensure that young people can build their knowledge, skills, attitudes and values to responsibly enjoy their sexuality – physically and emotionally, individually and in relationships. It empowers young people to protect their health, well-being and dignity, as well as to know and exercise their rights. There is clear evidence that CSE has a positive impact on sexual and reproductive health (SRH).
