Qadeer Baig

Pakistan is a nation of Youth - 60 percent of 168 million people are below 24 years of age. World Population Foundation has been implementing sexuality education (Life Skill Based Education) in Pakistan for last 5 years. It is one of the unique interventions on Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights for school going adolescents. In-spite of a conservative society, WPF has successfully developed Sexuality Education Programme through an ‘inclusive and culturally appropriate approach’ where as similar programmes in secular societies have faced severe resistance. About 70,000 adolescents in 11 districts have completed the sexuality education curriculum (50 percent girls).
