Worldwide youth activists at national and international level are advocating to ensure that the free and universal access to Comprehensive Sexuality Education is not just a “hashtag” in a post – it is evidence-based non-formal peer education training provided in order to help young people develop personal skills and make informed choices regarding their sexuality and rights.
Thus in the past few years, there are various international platforms and forums where young people vividly expressed their wish to have access to CSE. To highlight some of them:
Eastern and Southern African Ministerial Commitment on CSE - On 7 December 2013, health and education ministers and representatives from 20 countries in Eastern and Southern Africa affirmed a landmark commitment supporting sexuality education and sexual and reproductive health services for adolescents and young people The ESA Commitment process was led by UNAIDS with the support of UNESCO, UNFPA, UNICEF, WHO and a number of bilateral and civil society partners, including young people’s organisations. The ESA Commitment was backed by a specially commissioned regional report and a vibrant advocacy and communication campaign engaging young people and other stakeholders across the region.
