Government is finalizing a comprehensive sex education policy for primary and secondary schools. This is to stem the problems caused by pupils engaging in early sexual relationships, which include teen pregnancy, illegal abortions, STIs and psycho social trauma. Primary and secondary education minister professor Paul Mavima emphasized that the school healthy policy would not encourage condom disbursement at learning institutions. Schools are not going to disburse condoms, not now and not ever. Health Minister David Parirenyatwa said the policy would facilitate placement of health professionals at all schools.In the past they used to be a facility , when you arrived at school there would be health personnel there to examine you, your teeth, genitalial and other body parts.
