Positive Sexuality Education Demonstration Scheme
According to the Department of Health, the number of teenagers aged 29 or below infected with HIV has risen sharply by 55.6% from 2011-2015, which shows a worrying trend that reflects the urgency to implement positive sexuality education in Hong Kong. However, the ‘Guideline on Sex Education in Secondary Schools’ has not been amended since 1997 and does not provide a clear and systematic guidance on sex education classes to cater to the needs of the teenagers.
In view of the current severe sexual health condition of the teenagers, and the insufficiency of current sex education, we have developed an evidence-based teaching manual on positive sexuality education with Sticky Rice Love. With a one-year pilot scheme to evaluate the effectiveness of our curriculum, the teaching material has been proved to be effective in protecting the sexual health of the teenagers.
You may click here for our report to know more about the design and effectiveness of our positive sexuality education pilot scheme. You may also click here to download the teaching manual of positive sexuality education. (Both currently in Chinese only.)
The lesson plans used in the scheme (currently in Chinese only) are available below for teachers of senior secondary students to use:
Teachers or youth workers are welcome to contact AIDS Concern and Sticky Rice Love for collaboration to promote positive sexuality education.
