During the seminar, it was discussed that topics related to sex and reproductive organs are often considered taboo in society. However, in reality, teenagers have a high level of curiosity about reproductive health. The seminar covered general signs of puberty experienced by both male and female adolescents, as well as topics such as sexually transmitted infections, reproductive tract infections, HIV and AIDS, and the misuse of narcotics, psychotropic substances, and other addictive substances. The students enthusiastically participated in the seminar as it closely relates to their everyday lives. The seminar was attended by the Acting Head of the South Tapanuli Regency Health Service, Mawarni Batubara, who also served as one of the speakers, Head of the Batangtoru Community Health Center, Elida Handriani Batubara,  and Head of the Hutaraja Community Health Center, Nelly Karmila Aritonang. This event was organized through the collaboration of PTAR with the South Tapanuli Regency Health Service, Batangtoru Community Health Center, and Hutaraja Community Health Center.
