In 2016, President Obama replaced abstinence-only programs with age-appropriate, evidence-based education that addresses life skills to help teens make responsible decisions that lead to safe and healthy lives.

Sexuality education is a lifelong process and it requires a multifaceted approach, it is a team effort.
