Snippets from the session co- hosted by UNESCO, UNAIDS, Unfpa Esaro and the Government of Cote D' Ivoire on the sidelines of the ongoing 2017 International Conference on AIDS and Sexually Transmitted Infection in Africa (ICASA).

The session was moderated by the UNAIDS Director Regional Support Team for Eastern and Southern Africa (RTESA) Dr Catherine Sozi and graced by Honourable Kandia Camara – Cote d’Ivoire Minister of National Education & Technical Education, Honourable Mokhele Moletsane – Lesotho Minister of Education & Training, Honourable Michael Lopuke Lotyam – South Sudan Undersecretary of General Education and Instruction and Ms Lorence Kabasele – President of Afriyan Eastern and Southern African Region - Afriyan ESA

Dr. Catherine Sozi, “We are all ambassadors of Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) as it is not against any culture or religion but builds support to the cultural and religious pillars of society”

Mr. Michael Lopuke Lotyam, “When a country is preparing for war, it does not buy ammunition during the war but well before the war breaks out. In the same vein, CSE serves to empower young people and adolescents to face head on their sexuality and changes in them that may lead to risky behaviour if not properly harnessed.”

Ms Lorence Kabasele, “Let us leave no one behind in the journey. This calls for measures to be put in place that brings CSE to the illiterate out of school adolescent and parent who do not understand English, French or Portuguese. Let us have the guidance translated into the local languages too.”
