Education about Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) needs to be implemented in inclusive education to establish social justice. SRHR is everyone’s right because it is tightly related to success of human empowerment. In Indonesia, the Ministry of Education and Culture has issued guidelines for Sexual and Reproductive Health and Right program to implement inclusive education. The legal basis for SRHR education has been regulated in Health Law Number 36 of 2009. However, the reality, SRHR education is not being implemented optimally in the inclusive education policy. The problems can be caught from the amount of sexual violence that occurs in formal schools, pregnancies outside of marriage, to the high amount of cases of early marriage among students. Sexual and Reproductive health knowledge is required for male and female students. This article aims to survey the extent to which inclusive education in Indonesia contributes to sexual and reproductive health issues based on the Salamanca education perspective and principles.The methodology used is a systematic literature review through UNESCO inclusive education guidelines, SRHR Education, and various cases of sexual violence among students in Indonesia. The results of the study indicate that the implementation of inclusive education in Indonesia is not optimized because it does not prioritze SRHR education as a major priority to prevent sexual violence and pregnancy outside of marriage among students. As a result, students are vulnerable to sexual violence cases because they do not understand the importance of sexual and reproductive health in their bodies.
