Based on a rigorous review of evidence on sexuality education programmes, this International Technical Guidance on Sexuality Education is aimed at education and health sector decision-makers and professionals. This document (Volume I ) focuses on the rationale for sexuality education and provides sound technical advice on characteristics of effective programmes. The International Technical Guidance is relevant not only to those countries most affected by AIDS, but also to those facing low prevalence and concentrated epidemics.
This Action Guide is full of activities that can be undertaken at either individual or group level. Based on trials with teachers in a wide range of countries with different cultures, educational systems and attitudes towards gender issues, it shows how important school is, especially at the post-primary stage, in forming expectations of girls and boys and ideas about gender roles.
The Gender-Responsive School will be of practical value for all educational professionals who are concerned to promote gender equality.
