WHY WE NEED SEXUAL HEALTH EDUCATION
An estimated 18,000 underage girls get pregnant in Malaysia every year. Experts are linking it to the lack of sexual and reproductive health knowledge, which helps teens to understand their bodies and empower them to make healthy decisions in developing social and sexual relationships.
This is a R.AGE campaign supporting the call for comprehensive sexuality education both in schools and at home.
