The limits of school-based sex education: Lessons from rigorous evaluations in the UK

Marion Henderson Ph.D.

The UK has among the highest teenage pregnancy and STI rates in Western Europe and strategies to reduce these outcomes have a high priority. This paper seeks to draw lessons from the rigorous evaluations of three sexual health initiatives: SHARE (a cluster randomised trial (CRT) of teacher-delivered sex education), RIPPLE (CRT of peer-delivered school sex education) and Healthy Respect Phase 2 (a quasi-experimental study of a multi-component Scottish national sexual health demonstration project encompassing youth friendly sexual health drop-ins, social marketing, branding, a parenting component and SHARE).

 

 

Recorded in June 2011 at the 20th WAS World Congress for Sexual Health
Forging the Future: Sexual Health for the 21st Century, Glasgow, UK.
