Sex education in schools is of great importance as it exposes students to issues that are related to sex. It is important for teens to know about sex as that keeps them well-informed about sexual practices, sex, child sexual abuse, sexually transmitted diseases, pregnancy etc.

As per the World Health Organization, sex education in schools must be given to children aged 12 years and above because about 34% of HIV infected persons fall in the age group of 12-19 years.
