Will comprehensive sexuality education (CSE) help in youth development?

Will comprehensive sexuality education (CSE) help in youth development? The purpose of this review is to critically analyse the extant research and help readers understand the ways the school-based comprehensive sexuality education (CSE) can contribute towards youth development and urge policymakers to implement nationwide good-quality, scientific, culturally relevant, age-appropriate and holistic school-based CSE.Design/methodology/approachThis literature review has been designed using the extant information available on Google Scholar, Web of Science (WoS) and PubMed.FindingsThe findings of this review inform that there is a significant need amongst the youth of the day for good-quality, scientific, culturally relevant, age-appropriate and holistic school-based CSE. Also, the findings suggest that there are significant associations between school-based CSE and youth development.Research limitations/implicationsThis research paper although draws from extant literature about sexuality education and its delivery across the globe, it applies the sexuality education scenario in India.Practical implicationsThe findings of this review aim to implicate nationwide policy-level changes to implement CSE in the school curricula.
