Are we promoting sexual health? Experiences of sexuality education in Puerto Rico

Dr Carlos Rodriguez-Diaz

There is a global call for the provision of universal access to comprehensive sexuality education and information as part of the goals for sexual health for the millennium. Within the colonial context and as part of a Latin American and Caribbean culture, Puerto Ricans has faced challenges in the recognition of sexual diversity, sexual rights and evidence-based interventions to promote sexual health. Several actions have been taken in order to analyze and improve the sexual health status in Puerto Rico through the implementation of sexuality education initiatives.
