"Teachers may also design supplementary school-based on sex-education programs according to the needs of their students. In addition, we organize professional development programs from time to time in a bid to help them build up confidence and capability in teaching," he noted.

"Through school visits and contacts with teachers in professional training activities, we have learned that schools can make use of different kinds of activities, such as talks, exhibitions, debate competitions, adventure-based training camps, to provide sex education," Li said.

"We believe that sex education has been generally and properly implemented in schools," Li added.
