New UNESCO strategy on education for health and well-being

The UNESCO document 'Education for health and well-being: contributing to the sustainable development goals' describes UNESCO’s commitment to ensuring all young people have access to comprehensive sexuality education, healthy learning environments, and to the information needed to protect themselves from HIV and develop healthy relationships. It also recognises that a more comprehensive approach to school health, and coordination across sectors, is needed. The UNESCO strategy is aligned with, and will contribute to, the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals, particularly those relating to education, health and well-being, and gender equality.
