Currently, sex education is not working for young people. When present, it often focuses on shame, disease, and pregnancy prevention - while pleasure, consent, and intimacy are overlooked or ignored. YLabs, The Case for Her, and Glasswing International are working with young people in El Salvador to envision a new kind of sexuality education.
Young people accessing sexual and reproductive health services are often faced with stigma, judgment and provider bias. With our partners, we are working to address provider bias and improve services for young people.
Using an innovative approach that combined storytelling and interactive voice response mobile surveys, we uncovered young men’s perspectives on gender, fatherhood and family planning, masculinity and vulnerability, gender-based violence, and unemployment.
