Sexual Health Week 2024 – Sexual Health is for Everyone!
How health care providers can talk about sexual health as part of overall health and wellbeing.
We all have sexual health. Along with things like our physical health and mental health, sexual health is a normal part of our overall well-being. It’s connected to pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections, sure, but it also impacts how we feel about our bodies, consent, pleasure, and more! As such, it’s important that we talk with clients about sexual health care and services as a regular part of our overall health.
This panel, hosted by Action Canada for Sexual Health and Rights as part of Sexual Health Week 2024, is a space to hear how health care providers, students, pharmacists, and researchers are working to create healthier, inclusive, sex-positive spaces for everyone – Because sexual health is for everyone.
