Venereal disease: its place in health education in schools.


The paper reports the findings concerning venereal diseases and contraception in several surveys conducted into health education in Northern Ireland. The evidence shows that there is little instruction and discussion of these subjects, either at home or at school, but that teenagers are divided in their attitudes, some desiring information while others are apathetic. The need for well informed teenagers willing to make responsible decisions is stressed and reference is made to one curriculum development project producing materials in this field.
