Young People and Sexual Health in Europe: Reducing Risky Behaviour through Education and Empowerment
Thon Hotel , - Brüssel, Belgien
Public Policy Exchange
The World Health Organisation’s European Child and Adolescent Health Strategy (2015-2020) indicates that 25% of 15-year-olds have had sexual intercourse. In some countries more than 30% of these are not using condoms or any other form of contraception. These and other figures demonstrate the need to further develop early childhood comprehensive sexuality education. A comprehensive approach can enable young people to make informed decisions about their sexuality and health, and to build healthy life skills while empowering them to develop more responsible behaviours.
This timely symposium provides an invaluable opportunity to discuss different strategies aimed at improving young people’s access to information, contraception and advice services.
This symposium will also examine the importance of addressing the challenges related to young adolescents’ sexual and reproductive health through a multilevel approach that encompasses developing youth-friendly health services, parental capability, health-promoting schools as well as empowering young people to participate in the decisions that affect their lives.
