Program D

Designed as a complement to Programs H and M, Program D combats homophobia and promotes diversity respect

Program D (D for diversity) promotes respect for sexual diversity and challenges homophobia by promoting reflection on gender stereotypes and sexual behaviors among young men and women. The interactive curriculum contains 19 activities, developed by Salud y Género in partnership with Promundo, ECOS, Instituto Papai and World Education. This curriculum was designed as a complement to Programs H and M, and the main approaches and activities of the three programs are integrated into the Manual for Action HMD Programs.

Program D uses interactive activities and group education to promote debates on gender socialization, the construction of sexuality and to expand young people’s view on the care of their mental and sexual health. This program is aimed at teenagers and young people, as well as professionals in the education and health sectors.
