HAS Planned Parenthood Ties

NOT Evidence-Based

Contains Harmful Elements

The “Review of Comprehensive Sexuality Education in Thailand” was released in 2016 by UNICEF in partnership with UNFPA, UNESCO, and the Thailand Ministry of Education.  The publication clearly reveals the dangerous, unhealthy concepts UNICEF, UNFPA and UNESCO think should be taught to children through comprehensive sexuality education (CSE).

Harmful Elements

The UNICEF “Review of Comprehensive Sexuality Education in Thailand” encourages exposing children and youth to multiple harmful concepts, through statements and various activities that are harmful and sexually engaging to children.

Below are direct excerpts from UNICEF’s “Review of Comprehensive Sexuality Education in Thailand.” Prepared by Family Watch International, these excerpts reveal what UNICEF thinks children should be taught through comprehensive sexuality education (CSE).

UNICEF criticizes the CSE curriculum content, complaining:


  • “Topics related to the prevention of teenage pregnancy, sexually transmitted infections and HIV, as well as sexual anatomy and development are emphasized most, while topics related to gender, sexual rights and citizenship; sexual and gender diversity; gender inequality; safe abortion; safe sex for same-sex couples; and bullying are less often taught.” (Pg. i)
  • Rarely depicted topics included LGBT issuessexual consentmutual pleasure, emotions in relationships, drugs and alcohol, sexual harassment and abuse, the internet and sexuality, gender equity in sex and sex work.” (Pg. 15)
  • “Many students hold attitudes that reject gender equality and sexual rights …” (Pg. i)
  • “… a majority of teachers think that sex among unmarried students is unacceptable, which indicates that they reject some sexual rights of their students.” (Pg. i)
  • “… training should be provided to teachers that gives them opportunities to revise their sexual attitudes and prejudices, emphasizes gender and sexual rights.” (Pg. 44)

UNICEF reveals its ties to International Planned Parenthood and the involvement of other UN agencies:


  • The research team also would like to show its appreciation to the technical advisory board comprised of organizations including the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), Population Council, Path2Health Foundation, International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF), Women’s Health Advocacy Foundation (WHAF) and the Thai Health Promotion Foundation.”

Examples of Harmful Content & Activities:

“...condoms, sometimes personified as heroic protectors or as smiling companions.”

As part of the CSE curriculum review conducted in 2016 in Thailand, UNICEF asked students who attended focus groups “to draw anything in relation to their CSE classes.”

“Preventing pregnancy and infection was another common theme, represented by condoms (72), sometimes personified as heroic protectors or as smiling companions.” (Pg. 14)

Evidence of Failure
“Review of Comprehensive Sexuality Education in Thailand”, like most CSE programs, cannot be considered an effective, evidence-based program for the students it was designed to serve. 
There is no evidence that “Review of Comprehensive Sexuality Education in Thailand” is an effective curriculum for reducing risky sexual behavior among young people.
