Advancing Comprehensive Sexuality Education in the Region
In partnership with Demysex, the Mesoamerican Coalition, our Member Associations, and civil society organizations, we are carrying out a regional advocacy initiative in 19 countries in Latin America and the Caribbean that promotes young people's access to comprehensive sexuality education and youth-friendly services.
Through this regional partnership, we monitor and advocate for the full implementation of the Ministerial Declaration, "Preventing through Education." The Ministerial Declaration is one of the key instruments to combat the HIV/AIDS pandemic in the region and facilitates synergy between the health and education government sectors and civil society.
In 2010, 2011, and 2012, we conducted an evaluation to determine the degree to which governments are meeting the commitments made in the Ministerial Declaration. We use the evaluation results as an educational and advocacy tool at the regional, national, and international levels. Our database makes country-specific information related to the Ministerial Declaration and the need for comprehensive sexuality education readily available to advocates and decision-makers.
