The training course was held in Da Nang from May 27th-29th, 2022 with the participation of representatives of the two provincial DETs, 23 medical staff and teachers from the project districts in Dak Lak, Quang Tri and Thua Thien Hue. The aim of this training course is to strengthen teaching and counseling skills of teachers and core medical staff to support youths with disabilities in the subject of sexual and reproductive health. Through group discussions, games, role-plays, and practicing teaching and consulting directly with youths with disabilities, participants learned about the following topics: sexuality and sexual development milestones, sexual diversity, friendship and love, safe sex, abuse prevention and counseling skills, sex education for youth with disabilities.
Group discussion activity
Throughout the program, trainees participated enthusiastically in discussions and shared their knowledge as well as experiences in teaching and providing medical advice.
