Adolescence represents a crucial period of life for transitions in which concerns emerge, particularly in the area of sexual health. The transition to adulthood marks the entry into sexuality and the emergence of various concerns. Promoting sexual health among young people is therefore essential to avoid or reduce the morbidity and mortality associated with risky sexual behavior, but also to understand sexuality in a holistic and positive way. For this, sexual health education aims to develop knowledge and skills with a view to adopting long-term positive behaviors. Also, moving from knowledge to action requires a process that aims to make the subject actor of its change, that is to say its ability to be autonomous.

It aims to improve social learning and provides undeniable psychosocial support.
