A new approach for sexuality education in the European Region: 'Standards for Sexuality Education in Europe'

Dr Christine Winkelmann

The “Standards for Sexuality Education in Europe” were developed by a group of 20 experts from nine European countries under the guidance of the Federal Centre for Health Education (BZgA) in Cologne, Germany and the WHO Regional Office for Europe. The Standards are an important instrument to overcome huge differences in quality and scope of sexuality education in the European region. In many countries sexuality education concentrates solely on the communication of biological facts, neglecting social and psychological aspects as well as skills. This one-sided orientation and the poor quality have negative consequences for young people: many countries are recording substantial numbers of sexually transmitted infections, teenage pregnancies and sexual violence.
