Great news out of Nigeria: To equip young people with the right information in making better decisions concerning their sexuality, the Lagos state government recently launched two policy documents to that effect: Dissemination of The Strategic Implementation Framework For The Lagos State Youth Policy and Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) Curriculum and Teaching Manual: https://www.newstalkafrica.com/comprehensive-sexuality-education-an-informed-health-approach-for-young-people-by-ijeoma-ukazu/. We’re following up with the TCI and NURHI teams to see if electronic copies are available and will share as soon as we receive them. Congratulations to all the advocates involved in making this happen!
