This area on the website is dedicated to teachers and parents. It provides information, advice and materials to assist with contraception education and dialogues. Experience has shown that comprehensive contraception discussions can be effective in helping young people understand the reproductive system, know about contraceptive methods and use contraceptives when they do become sexually active.

The Teen Outreach Pack was developed to enable anyone to conduct an educational session with young people on taking responsibility for contraception. It contains key materials such as a ‘How to’ guide and an educational presentation, case studies and contraception puzzles, a contraception leaflet, guides, handouts (T-shirts and baseball caps, certificate) as well as NGO resources (brochures, additional educational materials).
