Teens Take Sex Ed To Public Libraries
Teenage students from Palmares, northwest of San José, are the latest to receive HIV-AIDS education in their community’s public library thanks to a program supported by the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and the National Public Library System (SINABI).
Through the program, a select group of students from a chosen school – in this case, the Esquipulas Technical High School in Palmares – are given intensive courses on sexual health and HIV prevention, the daily La Nación reported. The students then meet for three days in their community’s public libraries, each inviting three others to partake in the workshops.
The program’s objective is for those students to share what they learn with their peers. The program is also running in public libraries in Limón, on the Caribbean coast, and in Moravia and Tibás, both north of San José, the daily reported.
