Sixty-three percent of young people will have sex before they graduate high school, and 95 percent will have sex before they are married. Young people are disproportionately impacted by STIs, including HIV, and unintended pregnancy.
Research has shown effective sex education programs have positive outcomes among young people such as delaying the initiation of sex, decreasing the number of sexual partners, and increasing the use of contraception and condoms. Comprehensive sexual health education helps reduce the rates of STIs and unintended pregnancy among young people by providing complete and accurate information to help young people make responsible, informed decisions about sex and healthy relationships
The Real Education for Healthy Youth Act (H.R. 1706, S. 2765) would ensure that federal funding is allocated to comprehensive sexual health education programs that provide young people with the skills and information they need to make informed, responsible, and healthy decisions. This legislation sets forth a vision for comprehensive sexual health education programs in the United States.
