Provides a contemporary picture of the sexual behaviour of adolescents in Canada. Explores the socio-cultural, socio-environmental and interpersonal determinants of adolescent sexual behaviour. Demonstrates that most students report relatively rare use of harmful addictive drugs, a “happy home life,” and indicate that the school serves as an important source of sexual and HIV/AIDS information, that students' sexual health knowledge increases with grade, and that youth are familiar with condom use. Also demonstrates a drop in confidence levels related to coping skills and self-esteem, and a high prevalence of alcohol use and episodes of drunkenness. Suggests the need for a comprehensive focus on students' sexual health.

Notes: 
Includes bibliographical references. --- Review, Network Winter/Spring 2004: The 9th International Women’s Health Conference was held in Toronto in August 2002, attended by over 400 delegates representing 75 countries. There were three conference themes: sexual and reproductive rights, violence against women and environmental health. For those who missed the conference, you can now experience some of its power through this collection of papers, all of which were presented at the conference itself. Some of the papers focus on case studies, such as the chapter on services provided to survivors of child sexual abuse. Others explore barriers to women’s reproductive rights, and still others discuss violence in refugee camps. Whether from Brazil, Palestine, Nigeria or Canada, the contributions are framed by the principle that equality (social, economic and political) is a necessary condition for improving women’s health.
