Sex education helps people gain the information, skills and motivation to make healthy decisions about sex and sexuality (https://www.plannedparenthood.org/learn/for-educators/what-sex-education 

Sex education should be included in the curriculum because it can help or it can inform the students about the issues related to sex and sexual health. It can also prevent teenage pregnancy. 

According to World Health Organization, sex education should be imparted on children who are 12 years old and above. It is estimated that 34% of the HIV infected people are in the age group of 12 to 19. The UNAIDS 2017 report indicates that the number of people with HIV in the Philippines has become the highest in the Asia Pacific Region.The Department of Health has documented a total of 11,103 cases of HIV/AIDS in 2017.

POPCOM Executive Director Juan Perez III said there is an average of 530 teenagers that get pregnant daily, and the figure has stayed above 500 since 2010. The number hit a high in 2017, when the agency recorded about 574 teen pregnancies per day.

Sex education should be implemented in every school in every country especially in Philippines because there are many teenagers who experience teenage pregnancy. It is appropriate that sex education should be taught to school so that the children can be made aware. It is a known fact that in our generation, many teenagers are very curious about things therefore, Sex education is a must and can help them to understand and take care of their body.
