CSE: A Needful Approach to Sexual Education in Cameroon Secondary Schools
ABOUT THE PROJECT
This project aims to increase comprehensive sexual and reproductive health awareness and services for secondary school young people in Cameroon. Desmond’s advocacy approach is twofold: proposing key points for a comprehensive sexuality education (CSE) approach in the National Guidance/Counselling syllabus and ultimately, its implementation between July and December 2016. The goal is to develop public awareness and support to drive the new CSE commitments past the project.
