Safe4Play: Innovative educational intervention for safe sexual and reproductive health

Project No: 2020-2-UK01-KA205-079645

November 2020 – October 2023

The increase in risky sexual behaviors among young people has sparked urgency and has become an area of interest for global public health researchers aiming to find innovative approaches to promote better sexual health.

Sexual and reproductive health education is one of the objectives of EU Action Plan for Sexual and Reproductive Health dedicated to the need of establishing and strengthening formal and informal evidence-informed comprehensive sex education pointing to the development of competency training and aids for teachers, educators and health professionals

Safe4Play will be a big a step toward the design of tailored and relevant sex education interventions that will promote active learning, rather than passive one-way learning. Two-way, interactive and tailored education is a more promising form of education compared to traditional one-way passive education.

Many people feel less vulnerable to Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) based on their belief that they can ascertain whether a potential partner is likely to be infected or not on the basis of the way that they look or some other superficial characteristic.

The challenge is to find the best way to tackle this problem and to ascertain what tools we could further develop to establish this. Digital educational interventions and serious games could be an effective sex education method as this generation is very familiar with this technology.

As a result, there may be a reduction in STI rates and unwanted pregnancies in the EU after the introduction of Safe4Play.
