A comprehensive sexual education programme empowers young people to make informed choices, a young delegate from Bulgaria has said.

Peter Mladenov from the Department of Youth Policies in the Bulgarian Ministry of Youth and Sports said the classes he took "changed his life".

He is in New York for the UN High-Level Meeting on Ending AIDS as a public health threat by 2030.

Those who receive this form of education are not likely to become sexually active or increase their sexual activity as some might think, says Mladenov.

He told Jocelyne Sambira about the concept and how it has been effective in protecting young people's health.
