This paper reviews the nature and explores the context of, and reactions to, reproductive health education in China by both the target population of adolescents at school and the wider public. The debate about reproductive health education and its content is taking place within the context of rapid behavioural and sociological changes in China which, in turn is, generating conflicting demands concerning the need for education by the population and the control of the population by the government. Foucault's theories on sexuality and discipline are found to be useful in exploring the subject of reproductive health education in China.
