Looking at one region, Latin America, where sexuality education has a long history and is present in most countries of the region. This presentation will analyse some of the supporting factors at the policy and political level that have enabled scale-up of sexuality education programmes such as the Ministerial Declaration "Educating to Prevent". By understanding the political influences and the advocacy undertaken to ensure roll out of sexuality education, conclusions can be drawn about the different kinds of investments required, economic and political, to enable school-based programmes to be taken to scale.
