Sexual Risk Behavior Resources

School health programs can help youth adopt lifelong attitudes and behaviors that support overall health and well-being—including behaviors that can reduce their risk for HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).

HIV, STD, and teen pregnancy prevention programs in schools should

  • Address the needs of youth who are not having sex as well as youth who are currently sexually active.
  • Ensure that all youth are provided with effective education to protect themselves and others from HIV infection, other STDs, and unintended pregnancy.
  • Be developed with the active involvement of students and parents.
  • Be locally determined and consistent with community values and relevant policies.
