UNESCO Jakarta Office supported the Indonesian Ministry of Education and Culture To Organize A Teacher Training on Reproductive Health Education

A review on the implementation of school based reproductive health and HIV in schools in different areas of Bali shows that there were differences in the level of knowledge on sexual health among students from the schools which implemented the programs, compared to those from schools which did not adopt the programs. Although this indicated certain success in improving knowledge on sexual health among students, there were also some challenges that threat the programs sustainability. The lack of planning capacity among the stakeholders, lack of funding available, lack of skills and lack of confidence among teachers to deliver the sexual education to the students were some of them.

These results were presented by dr. Luh Putu Lila Wulandari, MPH during a meeting on Monday the 27th of October at Udayana University. Representative from the Ministry of Education and Culture (MoEC), Local Education Authority, Local NGO and other stakeholders were present.

The meeting was opened by Mee Young Choi, Ph.D from UNESCO Jakarta Office and by Prof. Dr. Dewa Nyoman Wirawan, MPH from Udayana University. The meeting also served as a support to provide inputs and to go over the last details for the teachers training in Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) to take place the following days in Gianyar. 

The training was held at SMA 1 Gianyar. Around 70 teachers participated as well as various stakeholders. The training included a presentation on Reproductive Health Education (RHE) followed by a presentation on the Integration of RHE into the 2013 curriculum. Ms. Noor Indrastuti, Ms. Asmawaty Fachrany and Ms. Rennie Diastuti from Book and Curriculum Center, Research and Development, MoEC facilitated the activities during this teacher training.

Nanik Suwaryani, Ph.D, MoEC, reminded participants during the closing remarks, that this teacher training was a pilot project that has been planned for over two years and was aimed to strengthen teacher capacity in delivering Reproductive Health Education (RHE) through the introduction of RHE and the integration of RHE into the 2013 curriculum.
