Éducation sexuelle : évaluation de mise en œuvre dans les établissements scolaires du second degré en Guadeloupe

Abstract : BACKGROUND: In 2012, Guadeloupe remained particularly exposed sexual risks. A sexuality education program has yet been established in 2003.
OBJECTIVE: This study is an evaluation of the implementation of the sexuality education program in colleges and high schools in Guadeloupe.
METHODS: Cross-sectional observational study of ecological type on 71 academic high schools in Guadeloupe. Data collection was conducted by questionnaires administered face to face to principals and staff they had appointed. A score of effectiveness was formed on compliance criteria to the regulatory framework.
RESULTS: 30% of secondary schools and 35.7% of colleges obtained a maximum or under-maximum compliance score. In multivariate analysis, a nurse present less than half-time, and the lack of involvement of the principal multiplied sevenfold the risk of low compliance score (p: 0.001 to 0.017). According to the staff interviewed, the main weaknesses of the system were the lack of social and health care staff and issues on school time organization. The main barriers were fear of incentive nature of the device and its ineffectiveness in preventing wanted teenage pregnancy.
CONCLUSION: The education system of sexuality in schools is not fully implemented in Guadeloupe. Raising commitment of principals and all education staff, soliciting membership of parents of students, diversifying the education teams are ways to improve the effectiveness and coherence of the sexuality education program.
