UGANDA: Sex Education Needed

The Observer on 21 October published an article on the role sex education plays in preventing teen pregnancy. UNFPA's Esperance Fundira, believes that information empowers young people with informative decision making choices, “When girls are educated and healthy, they are more likely to marry later, delay childbearing and gain productive or employable skills. We must, therefore, enforce existing laws and policies to ensure that no girl below 18 is allowed to get married." Read in English: The Observer
