Summary

In Thailand parents and teachers hardly ever talk about sex. Resulting in one in every 20 girls at the age of 15-19 ending up with an unwanted pregnancy. HIV also still spreads because of a lack of knowledge and education, mainly amongst youngsters. For that reason Siam-Care made an awareness program, consisting of: Sex education in secondary schools, communities and prisons.
