Sex Ed Implemented Slowly in Latin America
Many countries in Latin America have enacted legislation and
policies promoting sex education and sexual health services for young people,
but implementation has been slow, the Inter Press Service (IPS) reports. IPS
tracked compliance to a commitment signed by Latin American health ministers in
2008. By 2015, the principal goals were to reduce by 75 percent the number of
schools lacking comprehensive sex ed and by 50 percent the number of young
people without access to sexual health services.
