Strengthening the Capabilities to Implement Comprehensive Sexuality Education in Complex Contexts (Presented in Spanish)

Strengthening the Capabilities to Implement Comprehensive Sexuality Education in Complex Contexts (Presented in Spanish)

Introduction: By analyzing different capacity building
programmes related to CSE (Comprehensive Sexuality
Education), it is clear that an innovative and constructive
training programme is needed to address current
and new social challenges. Since 2016, FLACSO
Argentina, in partnership with UNFPA and UNESCO,
have established different online educational experiences
based on an interdisciplinary, international and culturally
diverse team.
Action and population: An international online
course on CSE was created for education and health
professionals from 18 countries in the Latin American
Region (approximately 100 students every year.) This
course also allows students to continue developing
their skills once the course is finished through the
Virtual CSI Community of Practice (currently 400
members.) A digital bulletin is issued every quarter
and distributed as an open publication. In addition, an
INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF SEXUAL HEALTH A27
exclusive continuing education platform is available for
the UNFPA staff across the Region, in which specific
online courses are developed with access to a digital
library and a technical assistance program.
Discussion and recommendations: Through this
diverse online educational strategy, we contribute to
increase the skills of the educational and health professionals
to implement CSI, and to deal with the challenges
they face in every community.
