Focus group discussion was used to reveal the opinions of the parents, teachers, and students (mid and high schools) about educational needs in reproductive health. A series of 24 group discussions with participation of 162 persons (64 students, 50 teachers and 48 parents) was held. All the participants noted to a true need in education of puberty health in order to provide essentials for preadolescent students to adopt the psycho- and somatic changes of puberty. However, a few fathers and a group of mothers believed that education of family planning is not suitable for students. A need for education of AIDS and marital problems for students were the major concerns in all groups. The female students emphasized a need for programming counseling in pre-marital period. In conclusion, essentials in puberty health, family planning, AIDS and marital problems should be provided in mid- and high schools in order to narrow the knowledge gap of the students.
