According to UNESCO, comprehensive sexuality education (CSE) is an ’age-appropriate, culturally relevant approach to teaching about sexuality and relationships by providing scientifically accurate, realistic, non-judgmental information’.

This report provides an overview of the status of comprehensive sexuality education implementation and coverage on a global level. It draws on specific information about the status of CSE in 48 countries, generated through analysis of existing resources and studies. The report examines the evidence base for CSE and its positive impact on health outcomes, takes stock of political support for CSE, and examines how the various global and regional commitments have had an impact at national levels on the delivery of CSE in practice. The current review represents the first in a series of periodic reports that aim to monitor the global implementation of CSE.
