The African Population and Health Research Center (APHRC) in conjunction with the Guttmacher Institute conducted a study on sexuality education conducted in 78 secondary schools in Kenya. At a time when the Kenyan curriculum is under review by the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development, this study provides evidence and an opportunity for policymakers and decision makers to explore how best to improve the comprehensiveness of existing curricula, in order to better equip adolescents with the information and skills they need to achieve healthy sexual and reproductive lives, prevent sexual violence and avoid negative health outcomes.
