Interactive drama:  “In response to the International Sexual Health Day”

In response to this year International Sexual Health Day, with the topic “Adolescents together share the rights and responsibilities to have safe and satisfied sexual lives”, Research Centre for Gender, Family and Environment in Development (CGFED), along with Academy of Journalism and Communication’s school union, held an exchange on the evening of August 25th.

In this event, there were teachers from School Leadership, reproductive and sexual health leading experts and hundreds of students from Academy of Journalism and Communication (AJC).

Mrs. Pham Kim Ngoc – CEO of CGFED – emphasized that: “The purpose of International Sexual Health Day 2011 is to raise the voice of adolescents and facilitate that voice to be heard. This is the chance for adolescents in Vietnam, and countries in the sector and over the world talking about their opinions on issues such as: What are the meanings of sexual health to you? Have the rights and sexual health been recognized and respected? What are adolescents’s responsibilities? What should adolescents do to own their rights?

Interleaving the program, there were vibrant, impressive music and comedy repertoires which created an exciting atmosphere for the meeting, helped students to get together and share their opinions and comments about matters that connected to sexual health.

Not only having information and knowledge, it’s important to learn about that information and knowledge fully accurate, thorough and comprehensive.  Young people nowsaday need to have an open, non-discriminated and responsible attitude to acknowlegde sexual health.
