The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) hosted its 6th Generation-to-Generation dialogue in partnership with the Ministry of Education to
highlight that a wide range of stakeholders share responsibility in providing comprehensive sexuality education.

To understand the current context of delivering Comprehensive Sexuality Education in Sri Lanka, the Ministry of Education, with support from
UNFPA, commissioned an island-wide study on the ‘Analysis, of Knowledge and Attitudes of School Children’s Sexual and Reproductive Health
Education’. A policy brief based on the study was formulated and launched at the event.

This post-brief document provides a snapshot of the discussions of the G2G dialogue and provides advocacy pointers that can assist in
evidence-based policy making.
