Provides a contemporary picture of the sexual behaviour of adolescents in Canada. Explores the socio-cultural, socio-environmental and interpersonal determinants of adolescent sexual behaviour. Demonstrates that most students report relatively rare use of harmful addictive drugs, a “happy home life,” and indicate that the school serves as an important source of sexual and HIV/AIDS information, that students' sexual health knowledge increases with grade, and that youth are familiar with condom use. Also demonstrates a drop in confidence levels related to coping skills and self-esteem, and a high prevalence of alcohol use and episodes of drunkenness. Suggests the need for a comprehensive focus on students' sexual health.

Notes: 
Includes bibliographical references. --- Review, Network Spring/Fall 2003: The recommendations of the International Conference on Population and Development, held in Cairo in September 1994, represent a radical change in the way population and reproductive health problems are conceptualized. Since then, however, the challenge has been to translate these recommendations into effective reproductive health services that satisfy the needs of women and men. This book presents 22 case studies that examine past and present practice in reproductive health and family planning programs, in a variety of setting, highlighting changes and work yet to be done.
