    DescriptionAdolescents’ sexual health knowledge and understanding is influenced by a variety of inter-related factors, such as parental influence, gender roles, language and culture, modernisation of the society, myths about sex and sexuality, peer pressure, media and communication, family support and involvement of external experts in school. School-based sex education should include different partners who have various roles. For example, the schools could work with health facilitators to deliver sex education sessions in the classroom. Health facilitators who work in schools and develop a good relationship with the teachers and students could be mostly liked by the schools.
