The Federal Centre for Health Education (BZgA) has been a WHO Collaborating Centre for Sexual and Reproductive Health since 2003. The thematic focus lies on sexuality education in the WHO European region, a theme in which BZgA has many years of experience on the national as well as on the international level.
