Congreso morelense interescolar sobre sexualidad humana. Promoting comprehensive sexuality education at high schools in Cuernavaca, Moreles, Mexico: The experience of a 20-year old psychology student.

Anton Castellanos Usigli

Being an 18-year old student at the Williams School of Cuernavaca, I noticed numerous sexual health problems among my classmates, and realized that non-scientific and distorted information about human sexuality was being taught by many teachers. With the support of the School’s Headmaster, I proposed and succeeded to single organize the «Williams School’s Human Sexuality Week» in February 2007.
