Kaya T, Akyuz A, Gocgeldi E, Gungor S, Bakir B, Bebis H, Hasde M.

Facilitating the participation of men in
reproductive health programs is an important factor
in improving mother and child health in the
community as well as preventing sexually
transmitted diseases and infections, and increasing
the use of effective family planning methods.
Approximately 500,000 soldiers join the Turkish
Armed Forces (TAF) annually in order to perform
their military duties. These soldiers are provided
daily health education within the scope of the TAF
reproductive health program since 2003. This study
was carried out with the aim of having counselor
educators evaluate the education process. 240
counselor educators expressed that they could use
active education techniques during education. They
stated that they have substantial problems associated
with feedback from the participants and face
difficulties in answering some of their questions. The
soldiers mostly directed questions related to sexually
transmitted diseases and infections, HIV/AIDS and
methods concerning only male sexual health in
reproductive health program of TAF.

Key words: Public education, reproductive health, sexually transmitted disease.
