RH Advocates back Reproductive Health Education for Youth

November 11, 2010

RH advocates, Filipino doctors and health experts join hands in supporting a website that helps young people deal with growing up pains which includes reproductive and sexuality health concerns. Department of Education (DepEd) cites national surveys such as the National and Demographic Health Survey (NDHS) and the Young Adult Fertility and Sexuality Survey(YAFSS) that show the very low knowledge of young Filipinos about sexuality and RH problems.
