Action 1: Make resources and information more accessible with pamphlets.They supplemented sex education that we have received with more information and resources. Action 2: Distribute condoms and keep them in an accessible place for students. Action 3: Offering condoms to students one-on-one during both lunch periods to save the embarrassment of coming to get one in front of other students or teachers
Increase awareness about safe sex and reproductive health topics that aren’t covered enough in health class. Reduce stigma surrounding these topics and increase accessibility to resources and information. Proactively provide information and resources regarding safe sex and prevention methods.
