Sexual Health

Why this matters

Discussing sexuality and sexual activity with young people can be challenging and research shows that health care providers struggle to adequately address this sensitive topic with their adolescent patients. Effective sexual health counseling and services have a positive impact on the physical and emotional well-being of adolescents.
