Kit to Educate Adolescents on STDs

abbeymonks4

The primary intent of this kit is to help users identify scenarios in which they can possibly put their sexual health at risk, provide information on the nature of most common sexually transmitted diseases, and prompt users to mitigate risk by getting tested frequently.

PROBLEM

Due to the lack of comprehensive sex education, a majority of Indian youth lack basic knowledge of healthy sexuality. Sexually active youth find themselves in situations where they unknowingly expose themselves to sometimes life-threatening diseases.

STRATEGY

A communication strategy system was designed to educate English-speaking youth (17-24 years) in educational institutions on sexually transmitted diseases: through a workshop conducted by healthcare professionals, organized by an NGO working in this area, students will be provided with information on safe sex practices. A takeaway from the workshop would be a kit that would supplement the information provided during the various sessions. ​​​​​​​
