WOM-001: Age-Appropriate Reproductive Health Education
Age-Appropriate Reproductive Health Education: To better foster good reproductive health practices among the state’s citizens, the Wisconsin Medical Society believes:
- While local school boards may select the particular program for their schools, age-appropriate reproductive health education should be a required part of all Wisconsin school curricula at all grade levels.
- Because some adolescents are sexually active while others are not, programs need to address both postponing sex and using contraception.
- That the appropriate state entity should perform a program evaluation of the various adolescent pregnancy prevention programs offered around the state, with sound methodology and long-term follow-up, so that programs offered to local school districts might be the most effective. (HOD, 0411)
