Adolescent day

August 1st is usually considered as Adolescent day..main aim being to educate the people abt its effect on the individual both biologically and psychologically...in keeping this mind IAP[Indian Paediatric Association] has started a program for the welfare of the people in this age group....

Indian being the home of highest no of HIV+ve cases really needs to educate the people regarding sex and its misconceptions....

The question (challenge) is how many ppl..will this program reach out to.

Parents HAVE to be open to have these conversations with thier children..thats where it has to begin...If the parents think such topics are taboo..they wont even let their kids attend 'em..u know wat i mean?
