Abstract

This document has been developed as a response to the need for sexuality education standards that has recently become apparent in the WHO European Region, which comprises 53 countries, covering a vast geographical region from the Atlantic to the Pacifi c oceans. Most Western European countries now have national guidelines or minimum standards for sexuality education, but no attempt has been made to recommend standards at the European Region or EU level. This document is intended as a fi rst step in fi lling this gap for the entire WHO European Region
