First Lady Monica Geingos has called on parents to openly discuss sex with their children.
The First Lady was addressing the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) multi-country dialogue in Windhoek on Wednesday.
She said this will allow young people to have the right information, and make the right decisions when it comes to sex.
The one-day dialogue was held under the theme: A changing and diverse sustainable development landscape: Impact on Sexual and Reproductive Health Rights outcome for Women and Youth in Southern Africa.
It's a build-up to the 25th anniversary ICPD high-level conference scheduled to take place in November in Nairobi, Kenya.
She said it is important for parents to ensure that children can trust them, in order to equip their children with the right information on sexual topics, so that when they find themselves in that position, they can make the right decisions.
The dialogue was attended by young people from Botswana, Eswatini, Namibia, Mauritius, Seychelles and South Africa.
