Sexuality education in a digital environment

Literature Reviews
Global Partnership Forum on Comprehensive Sexuality Education
11 p.

With over 71% of the world’s youth aged 15-24 online (ITU, 2020), many children, adolescents and young people are turning to digital sources to seek information about health, sex, and relationships. A growing body of evidence shows that young people are extensively using the digital environment as a key source of information about sexuality. Comprehensive sexuality education remains the cornerstone for improving the sexual and reproductive health of young people. Comprehensive sexuality education can be delivered through a range of programming modalities, both in school and in non-formal settings. In the context of the COVID-19 digital transformation, exploring the potential of technology and digital platforms for sexuality education and service delivery has become perhaps more important than ever, with many education systems enabling post pandemic resilience by complementing traditional classroom pedagogy with digital learning.
