The conference highlighted the importance of integrating SRH programs for adolescents in schools. It also emphasized the importance of continuing the dialogue between leaders in the education and health sectors in order to implement comprehensive programs that would allow education systems to include curricular and non-curricular activities, which aim to introduce reproductive and sexual health for adolescents. UNFPA's role was highlighted in various panel discussions including a thorough presentation on SRH integration within school curriculums. It is worth noting that the conference utilized onsite questions in order to consolidate recommendations via a phone application in which answers were automatically reflected through graphs on the screens.
