UNESCO commissioned this desk review to inform the adaptation, trial and delivery of the prevention education resource Connect with Respect: Preventing gender-based violence within schools (CWR) within the East and Southern Africa region (ESA). The CWR resource guides teachers in providing gender-based violence-prevention education for secondary school students. It was initially developed for UNESCO Asia and Pacific. Connect with Respect (2016) is a research-informed education resource which teaches the communication skills for respectful gender relationships. It provides learning activities about gender and equality, the effects of gender-based violence, positive gender role models, peer support skills for people who witness violence, and help-seeking skills for those who experience violence.

Situational Analysis on Early and Unintended Pregnancy in Eastern and Southern Africa

February 2018

Year: 2018
May 21, 2019 CSE, Sexual and Reproductive Health, Sexuality Education, Youth Friendly Health Services

Early and unintended pregnancy (EUP) is a global public health concern. Extremely prevalent in sub-Saharan Africa, it is driven by multiple factors, including poverty, lack of information and access to reproductive health services, cultural norms, peer pressure, and sexual coercion and abuse. Among other negative consequences for adolescent girls, including for their health, social, and economic outcomes, EUP jeopardizes educational attainment due to school dropout and decreased school completion. Preventing EUP is therefore an important component of a wider response to ensuring the right to education for all girls, requiring an effective response from the education sector in collaboration with other sectors.

Comprehensive sexuality education (CSE) is a curriculum-based process of teaching and learning about the cognitive, emotional,physical, and social aspects of sexuality. It aims to equip children and young people with knowledge, skills, attitudes, and values that will empower them to realize their health, well-being and dignity; develop respectful social and sexual relationships; consider how their choices affect their own well-being and that of others; and understand and ensure the protection of their rights throughout their lives.
