New approaches in sexuality education in Finland

Dr Dan Apter

The experience from Finland reflects the interconnectedness of school-based sexuality education and the availability of sexual health services in response to the needs of the population. Sexuality education became obligatory in schools in 1970. In 2004 a new subject 'health education' was introduced in most schools, and has been obligatory since 2006. Health education in Finland includes theoretical, social, emotional, functional and ethical skills along with information acquisition skills. Health competence involves the ability to assume responsibility for the promotion of one's own health and that of other people.
