Comprehensive Relationships and Sexuality Education?

There is a straightforward definition of Relationships and Sexuality Education that includes education lessons, activities, modules, curricula, or programs broadly relating to relationships, sex, sexuality, sexual health, respectful relationships, families, puberty, bodies, and reproduction.


Why should access to Comprehensive Relationships and Sexuality Education be legislated?

Governments are responsible for the wellbeing of their population. Comprehensive Relationships and Sexuality Education is a fundamental health measure designed to promote sexual wellbeing and prevent sexual violence.
