A charity has launched a series of gynaecological health lesson plans for teachers as research suggests a 'knowledge gap' on the topic of women's health.

A survey carried out by the Eve Appeal - which is offering the lesson plans - suggested only 9 per cent of adults were taught about gynaecological health in school.

Meanwhile, just 8 per cent of women said their parents made it easy to talk about gynae health with them and only one in three said they knew where to go for information on gynae health and cancers.

The Eve Appeal has today launched the Know Your Body Programme – a set of free to access, interactive, lesson plans for seven to 13-year-olds, covering the topics of anatomy, Menstrual health, HPV and cancer, and female genital mutilation (FGM).
