Challenge

Young people in Bolivia receive very little information about relationships, sexual health, pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections, as these topics are largely taboo in Bolivian society. This lack of information leaves teenagers vulnerable to situations that put their health and well-being at risk. This project will provide 2200 young people with vital information about sexual health, enabling them to change their lives for the better with responsibility, respect, solidarity and equality.

Solution

IDH educates adolescents, teachers, and parents in Bolivia about sexual health. We provide comprehensive training to teachers on reproductive health, pregnancy, and HIV/AIDS prevention that enables them to pass on this knowledge effectively to their students. Teenagers receive educational materials on sexual health and participate in our interactive workshops and events on sexual health. Parents are educated about sexual health to enable effective, open communication about the topic at home.

Long-Term Impact

The project will educate 2200 adolescents, 50 teachers and 1000 parents in a year on sexual and reproductive health, allowing young people to reflect on and make informed decisions about their health and improve their long-term well-being. Young people and the whole community will benefit from lower rates of sexually transmitted infections, unwanted pregnancies and fewer abusive relationships, while the values of responsibility, respect, solidarity and equality will have been strengthened.
