Position Statement: Ensuring Equity for Youth by Applying Gender Transformative Approaches

Date: September 21, 2017

Healthy Teen Network believes that organizations that deliver sexuality education and sexual and reproductive health services should apply gender transformative approaches to their service delivery. When so doing, professionals who provide sexuality education, clinical, and supportive services to youth should be cognizant of the environment and social norms within which the youth reside and remain respectful of their cultures while attempting to mitigate potential negative effects of strict binary gender roles.
