Sexual and Reproductive Health Awareness Week (SRH Week) is a yearly campaign designed to raise awareness on sexual and reproductive health and promote resources to improve community health in Canada.
This year SRH Week is from February 10-14 with the theme: Sex-ed keeps us healthy. When done right, sex-ed gives us the information and skills we need to be healthy and live full lives.
As a society, it means we can address big issues like rising rates of STIs, discrimination, and gender-based violence.This year’s campaign will address the different ways in which sex-ed is important to our health. In fact, it saves lives because it tackles the root causes of negative health outcomes. Sex-ed gives us the right information to better take care of our bodies. Sex-ed also shapes a culture of equality where everyone can thrive and be safe from violence and discrimination and teaches us the skills to nurture healthy relationships.
