Phillipines CSE brief_001

With various provisions and enabling laws and policies that exists in the Philippines in terms of comprehensive sexuality education (CSE), the country does seem to be on track to enable ‘gender mainstreaming’ policies, plans and programmes at all levels. The brief further addressed the challenges and gaps faced by the government by the capacities of policy makers, school administrators, teachers, and professors who were educated based on old curricula that are not inclusive of or have not been taught of the essential elements of CSE, who hold conservative views on the scope and age-appropriate content of sexuality education. The brief further posits specific recommendations to the government that include active interventions to better equip the education system in the Philippines that can further their capacities and resources, and likewise promote rights-based approach to all aspects of its plans, and programs.
