The long-term goal for this project is to develop protective knowledge, attitudes and behaviors among adolescents to prevent, particularly, early pregnancy, sexually transmitted infection and sexual abuse and coercion. The two project objectives are 1) to develop theoretical Comprehensive Sexuality Education Standards for the public, private, and out-of-school youth and 2) catalyze acceptance and use of these standards, especially by the Department of Education, and public and private schools.
