Advisory Committee on Family Planning Sexual Health Education Survey
The Advisory Committee on Family Planning Sexual Health Education Survey investigated parental attitudes toward sexual health education in the province of Saskatchewan between October 2006 and February 2007. Survey results provide insight into Saskatchewan parents’ ideas about sexual health education, their attitudes and expectations, and their perceptions of their own knowledge and comfort with providing sexual health education to their school-aged children. The findings provide a basis for discussion regarding current school-based sexual health education approaches and whether these approaches are meeting the needs of Saskatchewan families with school-aged children.

The Latest about HIV and AIDS: What Every Student Still Needs to Know
There is still no cure for AIDS, and teens and people in their 20’s account for many of the new cases of HIV infection. Using crisp animations, the program clearly details how HIV invades CD4 cells and weakens the body’s immune system and can lead to AIDS. The program debunks myths about how the virus is transmitted and identifies those behaviours that do, and do not, put people at risk of HIV infection. The program reviews the most recent information on HIV testing and stresses the importance of treatment for protecting one’s health and the health of others. A variety of HIV-positive people describe how they got infected, why they got tested, and how their lives have been affected by the virus.
Two supplemental programs are included on this DVD – How to Use a Female Condom and How to Use a Male Condom. These programs use graphics to demonstrate the proper way to use a condom. Before using these optional programs, you may need to check with your school’s policy on sex education as to whether parental permission is required.
