ghU on to Track Four

“Talks between our GROW team and our partner have long been skirting around the self-identified need of sexual health education in Kallpa Iquitos. Because of this and chapter interest, we've decided to use the track 4 independent research opportunity to explore, discuss and compile baseline data on sexual health education in Kallpa and compare that to what children and adults of similar ages get in Rochester. Ultimately we want to be able to breakdown the information in a 'Where are we on sexual health education in Kallpa and in Rochester?' pamphlet, better understand the reasons behind that self-identified need, and start to integrate ghU and GROW.

We want to educate our chapter on something that the GROW team will be learning about this summer and addressing during future trips. We hope that by doing so our chapter and our partner will feel more integrated.

By the end of track 4, we are aiming to have a statistical, anthropological and culturally conscious starting point, in pamphlet form, for the GROW team to go off of when evaluating and developing a sustainable and effective sexual health curriculum that Kallpa would want and benefit from.”

Some questions we want to ask:

  • How much access do citizens of Peru have to resources such as birth control, condoms, and sex education materials?
  • What is the social, cultural, and religious stigma attached to sex education?
  • What other sex education models have been used in other countries, especially in those with conditions similar to Iquitos?
