Our Rights, Our Lives, Our Future Progamme launched in Accra

Sub-Saharan Countries and UNESCO Lead Largest Regional Initiative for Comprehensive Sexuality Education.

The Ministry of Education in Ghana has hosted officials from UNESCO and other UN partners, Ministries of Education and Health from across 14 Sub-Saharan African countries to launch the Our Lives, Our Rights Our Future (03) programme. O3 supports the delivery of good quality CSE that empowers adolescents and young people by building skills, knowledge and attitudes to prevent HIV, reduce early and unintended pregnancies and eliminate gender-based violence.

This South-South dialogue was also a platform for Ministers and senior government officials from across Sub-Saharan Africa to engage with UNESCO representatives, UN senior officials, partners, youth, Civil Society Organizations, educators, parents and religious leaders. Discussions revolved around sustaining political commitment to accelerate the implementation of CSE programs in the region.  Read further.
