Why we shouldn’t shy away from sexual education | Dr. V. Chandra-Mouli | TEDxChisinau
As an expert in adolescent sexual and reproductive health, Dr. V. Chandra – Mouli, explains that sexuality education is not just teaching about sex, reproduction or how to avoid problems. It’s actually much more than giving information, it aims to prepare young people for a healthy sexual and reproductive life, but also a happy sexual and reproductive life.
Dr. V. Chandra-Mouli is an expert in adolescent sexual and reproductive health. He has worked for the World Health Organization in Geneva since 1993. His experience in generating knowledge and taking knowledge to action is global in scope and spans over 25 years. It includes support to Moldova. A key area of his focus is research on effective ways of providing sexuality education in different social, cultural and economic contexts, and using these research findings to strengthen sexuality education programmes in low- and middle-income countries.
