Factors that influence training of professionals to deliver sexuality education

Konstance McCaffree Ph.D

The Federal Ministry in Nigeria has approved the implementation of a curriculum to be delivered in schools from primary grades to the tertiary level. The success of this implementation depends partially on the training of the teachers who deliver the curriculum. A major challenge is that open discussion of sexual behaviors as well as most aspects of sexual health is taboo for nearly everyone in the culture. Adults need to deliver clear messages about behavior, in order to change behavior and people’s knowledge.
