Sex education and unintended pregnancy: are we seeing the results? Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • THE RECENT DEBATE about the pregnancy rate among adolescents in Australia has led to increased interest in the most successful way to prevent unintended pregnancies, and in the potential contribution of sex education with young people in schools. We address these questions in the light of the available evidence on effective sexual health education, and current Australian policy and practice.
