FJCU actively provides students with free sexual and reproductive health education 2020

International Federation of Catholic Universities (FIUC)

The Office of Student Affairs educates students on how they can protect themselves with regard to sexually-transmitted diseases such as AIDS. Sex education and reproductive health care services (provided in collaboration with the competent health care authorities), such as educational activities, online health care resources, a dedicated account on the Line messaging platform, seminars, health consultations, medical referrals and consultations, and so forth, are provided for free. The National Academy for Educational Research created a total of 43 videos on sex education for students in tertiary education, and these are available online for the students so that they may enhance their knowledge on related subjects (such as AIDS prevention) on their own. The FJCU Clinic and the FJCU Hospital each have outpatient services in family medicine, urology, and obstetrics and gynecology, providing support and information on preventive health checkups such as consultations and vaccines for HPV. FJCU’s Department of Public Health also offers a course on sex education for its undergraduate students; students from other academic departments may enroll in the course as well.
