This document is the third volume in a series of eight "question and answer" booklets developed in Kyrgyzstan by UNICEF and the GTZ. Similar booklets have been initially developed by GTZ in Tanzania and then adapted to different countries. The present series consists of an adaptation to the needs and cultural context of Kyrgyzstan, based on a survey realized among Kyrgyz adolescents. It is designed to equip young people with the necessary knowledge to make healthy choices for themselves and their peers. The series contain basic facts about human physiology and reproduction, sexuality, prevention of unwanted pregnancies, HIV/STIs, drugs & alcohol. This third volume deals with 31 questions about relations between boys and girls. Some of the questions asked are the following: "What is love?", "If a girl and a boy are in love, are they able to think about something else?, "What to do if your partner is older than you?", "What is rape?", "Do only boys rape girls?". The answers vary on length but all provide clear and precise information on the matter concerned. Some answers challenge several gender stereotypes.
