- Develop respectful and responsible attitudes towards sexuality and relationships
Why be WISER?
Accurate, balanced information about sexual health is crucial component of education particularly in today’s world, where we are constantly exposed to sexual messages and images through technology and the media. it is not always easy to navigate, and it can be hard to differentiate between what is true and what is not.
Good sexual health education can help to:
- Enhance relationships
