FP (5) Q1. What types of information and services on RH/FP do children and youth need? (2)

29 July, 2018

The message below is forwarded from our sister forum CHIFA (child health and rights):

Children aged 8-10 year olds need health education about normal human physiology in an age appropriate manner. That should include health and hygiene, nutrition and reproductive/sexual health education. Their questions on the topic must be adequately addressed.

Objective evidence based age appropriate RH/SH education and counseling must be freely available.
