Enabling Framework for Comprehensive Sexuality Education

While the majority of countries in the Asia and Pacific region have laws or policies related to sexual and reproductive health and/or sexuality education for young people, commitment to comprehensive sexuality education (CSE) varies significantly across these countries. National laws and regulations mandating the provision of sexuality education in schools are vital for ensuring an environment where accurate CSE can be taught. With laws and policies, the implementation of CSE becomes a matter of institutional policy, rather than the personal choice of individuals.
