Type of the activity: Campaign. Combination of education and advocacy. Campaigns create awareness in society about a certain topic (education aspect) and try to funnel this awareness into pressure on the decision makers to adapt policies accordingly (advocacy aspect).
It is important to point out that sex is not just a matter of adults, adolescents are more and more engaged in sexual practices. There is a high percentage of sexual activity among young people between 14 and 22 years old. thus, sex as beautiful as it can be, just as natural with so much importance in the eyes of people and especially in the eyes of our teenagers, comes with its pitfalls.
the commission acting in the sexual and reproductive health including the STHE of the AHEM finds it necessary that there is progress in the sexual education of our young people in Haiti and commits to work in this direction.this is how the commission’s committee aims to educate and educate young people about sexually transmitted diseases and about family planning.
For the realization of this project, the members of AHEM, the parent association, will be at the disposal of SCORA. the project is aimed primarily at students of new secondary I, II, III and IV of about ten schools in the metropolitan area.
Comprehensive Sexuality Education
Haiti is one of the poorest countries in the world and the poorest in America. 45% of women aged 15-19 have reached the primary level of education (EMMUS V, p25). Access to information is limited, 24% of women are not exposed to any media (EMMUS V, p39).14% of adolescent girls, women between the ages of 15 and 19, have one child (EMMUS V p81). with unmet contraceptive needs in 57% of women aged 15-19, (EMMUS V p105) it is necessary to make an effort in this direction.
