BANGKOK, 19 January 2011 (NNT) – The Ministry of Education is pressing ahead with its campaign to raise awareness about unwanted pregnancy and unsafe sex among teenagers.

Speaking upon the launch of the campaign, Education Minister Chinnaworn Boonyakiat elaborated that the campaign would educate teenagers aged between 15 and 19 years old to realize the risk of unsafe sex in a bid to cut the number of pregnant teenagers by 20% by the end of next year.

The Ministry of Education will implement three main strategies, including raising awareness to prevent teenagers from having sex prematurely, providing education on family studies as well as promoting appropriate behaviour among students in line with the Children Protection Act.
