Reproductive health education relates directly to six of the United Nations Millennium Development Goals, including that of combating HIV/AIDS. The need for high-impact adolescent sexual and preoductive health care programs has become a primary concern for global health organizations. Regarding HIV/AIDS prevalence, Panama is at a critical point in which the situation can either drastically improve or deteriorate depending on how it is addressed. This paper goes over the comparison of three methods of adolescent reproductive education in Panama, that are compared through the lens of the UN MDGs. The paper reveals that formal education sector initiatives, NOGO participation, and grassroots advocacy can all uniquely address the various MDGs. Thus, if these methods are used together they can form a starting point to guide the development of an adolescent reproductive health education program in Panama.
