FAJARDO VILLARROEL, Aurora. Strategy of intervention for the care of adolescents in sexual and reproductive health. Clinician "Dr. Carlos J. Finlay": Marianao, 2009. Enferm. glob. [online]. 2011, vol.10, n.21. ISSN 1695-6141.

A descriptive transversal study was carried out from January to December, 2009 aimed at designing an intervention strategy for teenagers' sexual and reproductive health that contributes to the knowledge of teenagers belonging to Doctor's Surgery number 9 of the Carlos J. Finlay clinic, in Marianao. The sample was 43 teenagers - 100 % of the universe. A questionnaire on knowledge about sexuality was applied and the findings were recorded in statistical charts and expressed in absolute and relative frequencies. The findings revealed a lack of programs on sexual education in health areas, schools and social facilities, such as learning needs, as well as in knowledges about using contraceptive methods, abortion and it's complications, and knowledges about Sexually transmited diseases(STDs) pregnancy and taboos about sexual preferences. As a conclusion, sexual education programs are insufficient. Primary health attention is an important link in the sexual education of the new generations.
