About the Book

Adolescents are the future nation builders and inculcating healthy life style among these youngsters is very timely.

It deals with the theoretical as well as practical aspects on the subject and focuses on sex education at secondary level, cultural heritage and sexual behaviour, values, curriculum development & evaluation, teaching-learning strategies, rural schools, guidelines for teachers etc. The alarming statistics regarding AIDS/HIV make it imperative for introduction of healthy life style education in school curriculum. Having made an exhaustive review of the role of sex education in various Western countries, authors in this book have emphasised fostering of Healthy Life Style among students for prevention of AIDS not only in India but also in Asia.
