This two-part handbook presents information on educating adolescents about reproductive and sexual health issues. "Book One, Understanding the Adolescents and Their Reproductive and Sexual Health: Guide to Better Educational Strategies" focuses on the demographic profile of adolescents as well as their fertility, sexual behavior, incidence of sexually transmitted diseases, HIV/AIDS, teen pregnancy, and abortion. It analyzes factors and problems associated with adolescent reproductive and sexual health and the causes of unhealthy development. Recommendations are provided to address various issues and concerns about adolescent reproductive health. "Book Two, Strategies and Materials on Adolescent Reproductive and Sexual Health Education" provides actual strategies, techniques, and guidelines for integrating content on adolescent reproductive and sexual health into the curriculum. It offers a comprehensive analysis of the gaps and problems in introducing reproduction and sexuality issues into the curriculum, responses of various countries, and the need for carrying out a more systematic program of education. This volume also defines what a reproductive and sexual health education program should cover, strategies that can be used to introduce an educational program on the subject, and elements to consider in formulating the curriculum. (Both volumes contain approximately 90 references.) (SM)
