Sex and relationships education both in and/or outside of school is important to ensuring not only sexual and reproductive health but wider gender equality issues. DFID’s 2018 Education Policy commits us, working with national governments, to promote appropriate sex and relationships education in schools to enable informed choices. Through our support to UNESCO, UNFPA and the Global Financing Facility, we support governments to address sexuality education in schools and through community-based training and outreach.
