Abstract

The prevention of unwanted pregnancy and STD/AIDS are two major goals of health educators. Usually these are discussed as separate goals. In this paper both of these health concerns are presented from a behavioural preventive perspective. Our objective is to outline the essential components to be used by health educators in school-based sex education programs focussing on the prevention of unwanted pregnancy and STD/AIDS.
