Even as a biology student, I'd always feel that the subject at school level could not keep up with the general level of curiosity and diverse concerns related to sexual health in the community. Culture-specific ways of understanding and disseminating sexual knowledge and helping individuals in reading bodily signals, met/unmet needs, learning about boundaries, consent is of utmost priority towards building an happy and well-informed nation. We, here at Allohealth strive to be the conduit of change.
