To improve young people’s SRHR, the University of Amsterdam (UvA) in partnership with the Her Choice Programme have developed three visualisation tools. One of them is to assess the Comprehensiveness of Sexuality Education.
The development and evaluation of the use of the tool have been funded through two small grants from Share-Net International. This tool has been implemented in the Her Choice programme countries in South Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa.
This tool allows for scoring a CSE intervention along different dimensions with a view to assessing the degree to which an intervention can be considered ‘comprehensive.‘ The CSE assessment tool was introduced in the Her Choice programme in response to study findings regarding the SRHR-related training given to teachers and young people. It was found that the training offered was not sufficiently comprehensive and that despite important improvements, young people’s knowledge still fell short in critical areas, for example, with regard to gender, sexual relations, and pregnancy. The CSE tool was developed drawing on findings of the analysis of existing CSE-related literature and guidelines.
