WHO report calling children ‘sexual’ beings continues to fuel debate worldwide

A recently resurfaced European report originally published in 2010 by the World Health Organization (WHO) is adding to continued debate in the United States over sexual education for children.

Co-authored by the WHO Regional Office for Europe and the German Federal Centre for Health Education, the 68-page publication advocates for policymakers, educators and national health departments to begin formal sexual education as early as possible. The report suggests “a child is understood to be a sexual being from the beginning.”

The WHO report continues by saying “the benefit of this approach is the normalization of the topic of sexuality.” Towards the end of document, a matrix highlights what sexual topics WHO deems is age appropriate.
