Access to youth SRH and comprehensive sexuality education without stigma

Access to youth SRH and comprehensive sexuality education without stigma is a descriptivestudy of the effectiveness of initiatives to improve adolescents access to and utilization of sexual and reproductive health services (SRHS) in low- and middle-income countries. It is vital for ensuring well being of adolescents, where SRHR has no single definition and described as the amalgamation of sexual health and reproductive health. The sexuality education without stigma isa positive and respectful approach to sexuality and sexual relationships and is of paramount importance with the possibility of having safe, sexual experiences free from discrimination, coercion, and violence, and allowing for a sexual life that is safe and satisfying with the freedom to decide if, when and how often to reproduce.

The main goal of SRHR is to provide information, education and health services to adolescents to help them understand their sexuality and protect them from unintended pregnancies and sexually transmitted infections combined with education of young men to respect womens self-determination and to share responsibility with women in matters of sexuality and reproduction without hesitation creating a comfortable scenario for both male and female. SRHR is a service that is accessible, acceptable, equitable and appropriate to meet all needs of young people aged between 1024years with its implementation in friendly and welcoming environment. Comprehensive sexuality education is a rights-based and gender-focused approach to sexuality education, whether in school or out of school and taught over several years, providing age-appropriate information consistent with the evolving capacities of young people. Comprehensive sexuality education includes scientifically accurate information about human development, anatomy and reproductive health, as well as information about contraception, childbirth and sexually transmitted infections (STIs), including HIV. But it also goes beyond information, helping young people to explore and nurture positive values regarding their sexual and reproductive health. This education includes discussions about family life, relationships, culture and gender roles, and also addresseshuman rights,gender equality, and threats such as discrimination andsexual abuse.

Complications from pregnancy and childbirth are the leading cause of death among adolescent girls. Through the effective comprehensive sexuality education, about 60 percent of programs had a positive effect on at least one behavioral or biological outcome, such as increased condom use or reduced unplanned pregnancies, good health of both mother and child which is the core well-being of that family. This is not working effectively in societies where the people still have blind faith in superstitious beliefs.

In summation, the higher waves of sea leading the water move farther parallels comprehensive sexuality education leading people more closely to SRHR services transcending any stigmatized boundaries. Youth needs to gain SRHR knowledge to make conscious, healthy and respectful choices about relationships and sexuality and even upkeep usage of precautions and fight for their own rights in family, society and community.
